Jordan River Parkway Trail

Great Trail EXCEPT SLC

May, 2024 by texasfan11

Most of this trail is great and peaceful. The only real watchout is parts of the trail in Salt Lake City. There are many homeless encampments and groups of people doing drugs out in the open (especially around North Temple). This was May 2024. The trail directly south of Salt Lake can get confusing at times as the signage is not great. Other than that it's a great trail that follows the Jordan river.

Provo River Parkway

Provo River Parkway and Canyon

May, 2024 by shastaron

Rode this trail from Utah Lake State Park up to Vivian Park and back. The first 10 miles are mostly in town even though you follow the river. The river make the ride cooler and more casual. The last 5 is moving through the canyon with the roadway nearby and can be loud. Mostly a gentle climb all the way to the turn around point. Of the first 10 miles about 6 of those miles are the roughest paved trail I have ever been on. Hopefully with all the 2024 construction that will improve. Mostly a downhill ride coming back. Be careful since there is a lot of foot traffic and several underpasses that are single lane only. Some of the in town sections near BYU are very narrow. Be patient.

Legacy Parkway Trail

Our favorite trail

April, 2024 by joshua.w.schulze

We absolutely love riding this trail. It’s the perfect length for our family rides. I have a 7yr and 5yr old and they love the change ins scenery, cool tunnels, roadside playgrounds, and places to eat in Farmington when we are done. Sometimes my 7yr old rides his own r-bike, the trail is plenty wide enough and very well maintained. Some parts don’t have shade and some do, which is normal from what I’ve experienced. It’s full paved so nothing harsh on the bike. It’s our go to trail!


Jordan River Parkway Trail

pretty and calm

Great little walk, a part of the riverton side was flooded but we just walked the other side instead. Very nice.

Murdock Canal Trail

One of the nicest paved bike trails I have seen. As wide as a lane on a road.

Parley's Trail

Uber Urban Trail

October, 2023 by sirlward

Parley’s trail begins within the intersection of Interstates 80 and 215 BeltLoop as it T’s off the the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. It quickly drops down into Parley’s Nature Preserve - which is the only real piece of nature you’ll encounter along this Uber Urban trail. From there you’ll closely follow interstate 80 into Sugarhouse Park then after winding through Sugarhouse business district the trail becomes aligned with the UTA S-Line light rail east to South Salt Lake. From here the trail meanders with often poor signage along city streets until it joins year another UTA light rail line (Green Line) as it crosses rail yards, interstate exchanges and finally meets its end as it T’a into the Jordan River Trail.

Parley's Trail

The trail is now complete!

October, 2023 by robmidgley

The local media has been covering its completion so we went and checked it out. There are some obscure spots where better signage would have helped to navigate. We started on the east end, Grandeur Peak Trailhead. Going west you stay south of I-215 until 1700 East, where you cross to the north side of the freeway and follow the south and west edge of Sugarhouse Park where the trail goes under 1300 East. Just past the sugar beet statue, turn left out onto Wilmington Avenue.

Lindon Heritage Trail

Nice wide paved trail. Mostly subdivision and industrial trail ride.

Ogden River Parkway

Great Trail!

September, 2023 by joshua.w.schulze

We started at the North end near the Dinosaur park. Awesome shade covers most of the trail the skirts the Ogden river. Trail is wide enough for comfortable traffic both ways. Plenty to see with the botanical gardens, parks, river stops, and runs by plenty of lunch options. We normally just keep going into the Weber River Trail. The Ogden River trail is one of favorite with our little ones. We feel safe and the trail is in great condition.

Pony Express Parkway Trail

Interesting history

July, 2023 by alecia.reinhardt

The trail is paved and it has gradual uphill and downhill sections. Not too much other traffic on the trail. Lots of street crossings make it hard to keep up momentum at times. Some cars saw me and stopped, but a couple did not see me so make sure to watch out for traffic turning into driveways. Not much for views on the trail. It follows alongside a busy road (the pony express highway). It’s a nice area to bike and I did some biking around the houses in the area. Nice to explore. There is a city park near the trail that has bathrooms and it’s overall very nice with a playground and pickle ball courts .

Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park

We rode this trail today from Coalville to Park City and back. It's a nice ride and the noise from i80 was not as bad as we expected.
