COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS — The final phase of the Big Cottonwood Canyon Trail is nearly complete, and city officials have planned a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the trail on Tuesday, June 25, at 5 p.m.
Currently, the Big Cottonwood Canyon Trail begins at the I-215 overpass near the Cottonwood Corporate Center and crosses 3000 East to wind past Spencer’s Pond and the Old Mill, ending in a residential area along Big Cottonwood Canyon Road.
The newest section of trail connects that portion of trail to the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.
Anyone who wishes to attend is invited to park in the park-and-ride lot at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon and walk westward along the trail to the ceremony location. The program will consist of short remarks from city officials and community partners who helped make the trail possible.
