Enjoy some time away from your Tooele real estate at Settlement Canyon. Breathe in the fresh air, take in the gorgeous views, and forget about work for a little bit. We all need a break from the grind every once in a while. Walk in the steps of the pioneers who were drawn to this place because of the natural beauty. This place used to serve as the site of an annual rodeo and festival, but now it is just a great spot for a little getaway.
Bring along a picnic and go for a hike. Let the children run and play on the playground. Watch for wildlife and replenish your vitamin D supply. Settlement Canyon is also home to Tooele’s City reservoir. Bring your fishing rods and start practicing your story about the big one that got away. Come for just the day or stay for a few days. Not many people have a place to go camping so close to their home, so that is a big perk of Tooele real estate.
