The Historic Utah Southern Rail Trail runs through Lehi, about 20 miles south of Salt Lake City, along a Utah Transit Authority rail corridor. Its begins near the Utah County Line by a sprawling Cabela's retail complex and travels southeast for about 3 miles, roughly paralleling I-15. The trail is wide and paved, offering both bicycle and pedestrian lanes. The views are mostly of open countryside, but shaded benches along the way offer comfortable places to rest.
Rail history buffs may want to head a little further south from the trail's end to visit the state's oldest railroad depot at 225 East State Street. The trail does not yet reach the depot, but it's hoped to one day and also continue further south to the city's boundary with American Fork.
Parking and Trail Access
Parking can be found in the shopping complex at the north end of the trail (off Chapel Ridge Road).
