The Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail extends from Farmington Bay Bird Refuge, where it joins the Legacy Parkway Trail
, and runs north through Layton, Clearfield, and Clinton to Hinckley Drive (3600 S) north of Roy. In Clearfield there is a detour around a railroad crossing, which isn't marked but is easy to figure out. From the Legacy Parkway Trail, you can pick up the Jordan River Parkway Trail
The abandoned right-of-way is owned by the Utah Transit Authority in a land bank for future transportation needs. The various cities it links have agreements with the light- and commuter-rail agency to maintain the trail.
A half-mile south from the trail's northern endpoint at U-79 (Hinckley Drive), you'll find parking at the Sandridge FrontRunner Station (4000 S and Sandridge Drive) in Roy; the station is less than a block east of the trail. A little further south, you can also find parking in Heritage Park (1300 N and 1000 W) in Clinton. In Layton, the mid-point of the trail, you can park at Ellison Park (750 N. Cold Creek Way) on the western side of the trail. Near the trail's southern end, parking is available in Farmington at the Legacy Event Center (151 South 1100 West) on the eastern side of the trail.
