Mountain Retreat Near Urban Center


​Emigration Canyon is the best kept secret near downtown Salt Lake. This community is loved for its rolling hills, wide open spaces, and mountain views. It is a place of tranquility and privacy, yet one can experience all the culture of Salt Lake City within a short drive. Lot sizes in Emigration Canyon range from a half-acre to two acres. Best of all, light and sound pollution are non-existent. Emigration Canyon offers a high volume of luxury homes ranging from 4,000 square feet and above. Many homes in this area were built from 2000 forward.

​At the mouth of the canyon are several condominium communities. These properties are in high demand for their magnificent valley and mountain views, offering picturesque sunsets. Emigration Canyon real estate will not disappoint! Emigration Canyon is a short ten-minute drive to downtown Salt Lake, and 25 minutes to Park City.

​Emigration Canyon offers access to widespread hiking trails. Hogle Zoo and Bonneville Golf Course are located at the mouth of the canyon. Enjoy a night of outdoor music at Red Butte Garden or attend the Chocolate Festival at the Natural History Museum. Downtown Salt Lake offers countless local restaurants and cafes.

Dining Options

Emigration Canyon offers two local restaurants – Emigration Brewing, and Ruth’s Diner. City Weekly said – “In a perfect world, every town would have a diner just like Ruth’s.” Ruth’s Diner offers a fairytale tree covered patio. On Sunday mornings, local musicians play while patrons enjoy mile-high biscuits and jam amongst the dancing hummingbirds. Here, there is the sense that all your cares have been taken away in the gentle mountain breeze. For an abundance of local options outside of the canyon, downtown Salt Lake and Sugarhouse are only a ten-minute drive away.
