Rocky Mouth Falls is a very easy walk that can be reached in about 10 minutes, and is located just above the east side neighborhood in Draper, Utah. Because of its short distance and little elevation it's a great "hike" for kids or families that aren't up for a big adventure. This trail is a little different in that you have to walk through part of the neighborhood to reconnect with the main trail.
Run-a-Muk Dog Park & Trail was introduced as an off-leash dog area in November 2014 in Kimball Junction, Utah. The trail is just under 2 miles round trip, yet dogs have the freedom of roaming the full 43 acre fenced-in field. It is located along the drive to the Utah Olympic Park, so it's a neat to experience to be able to hike and see where the winter Olympians train.
The Woods Trail & Dog Park is one of Jeremy Ranch, Utah's dog park. It is located in a neighborhood to the north of I-80, & this small dog park is fenced in for your furry pal to run around and get his energy out. After playing ball, grab your leash and take your choice of two trails starting from the dog park - the easy 0.5 mile loop that wraps around the pond, or the longer 1.3 mile loop that weaves its way through the neighborhood with view of Summit Park Peak.
Check out my list of the BEST Day Hikes in the Uintas! The High Uintas Wilderness offers some of the best day hiking near Salt Lake City. It provides for a fun, quick getaway that you can do in one day. If you have time, I highly recommend backpacking this mountain range as well. The Uintas are the only mountain range in the lower 48 states that run East to West. The Uinta Mountains extend for 100 miles across Northeast Utah, and a small part of Northwest Colorado, bordered by the Wasatch Mountains to the West.
Gordon Creek Waterfalls is a lesser-know falls near Helper & Price, Utah. It's a super easy hike that is great for the whole family, dogs included (off-leash). You may also see horseback riders on this trail so be careful when turning a corner. Gordon Creek Waterfalls is located in a flash flood area, so it's not recommend to be in this area after a heavy rain.

Battle Creek Falls is another family friendly, dog friendly, and child friendly waterfall hikes that is enjoyable as more of a stroll rather than a "hike".
