2019 First Encampment Hike

Presented by Days of 47 at Donner Trail Park

2019 will be our 15th year with the Commemorative Trek to the first pioneer campsite in the Salt Lake Valley.

During this family-oriented event, you can walk in the footsteps of the 1847 pioneers in a festive and commemorative hike that follows Emigration Creek through beautiful Salt Lake City neighborhoods. Points of interest will be described and pioneer conveyances demonstrated along the way. Foods prepared during the era will be discussed.

The hike begins at 7 a.m. at Donner Park (2770 East and 990 South, east of Hogle Zoo) and ends at First Encampment Park (1700 South and 500 East), near the site where the pioneers camped in the Salt Lake Valley on July 22, 1847. The hike is five miles long. Please arrange your transportation accordingly.
