Well “The Rock” is simply an outcropping just east of I-215 on the east bench of the Salt Lake Valley. From Wasatch Blvd, you take a turn to the east and pull up into the Mt. Olympus Trailhead parking lot, which is just below the small rock outcropping . But just south of the tiny parking lot is the start of the Mt. Olympus trail (if you don’t want to just hike up the rock pile in front). Take this trail a short few hundred feet up to the top of The Rock (the trail continues to your right). After climbing onto The Rock, you get a gorgeous view of the Salt Lake Valley looking west.  This is definitely somewhere you can bring some friends, a date, or even a first kiss! Cops have been known to hang out here and enforce a curfew, but as long as you aren’t jerks they are pretty cool. Map to The Rock.

This is a gorgeous, but expensive, attraction on the east bench of the Salt Lake Valley. Somewhere I would recommend taking a date. You don’t have to enjoy plants or flowers, but it is simply somewhere nice to walk, talk, run around, play hide-and-go-seek, and even kiss.
