Head south on the I-215 Belt Route for about 2 miles and exit at 3900 South. Take a left at the top of the exit ramp and head east. Proceed just a few hundred yards to Wasatch Boulevard, the first light. Take a left and head north 1 block to the light at 3800 South. Take a right on 3800 South and head east. The road runs through a residential area before taking you up into the canyon. After about 1 mile, is an entrance station. (The attendant there will supply you with a simple map and answer any questions you might have.) The trailhead is 4.5 miles past the entrance station on the south side of the road.
