Jordan River Parkway Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Jordan River Parkway Trail weaves in and out of urban areas, parks and marshy riversides as it follows the Jordan River for nearly 50 miles, traversing north from Utah Lake in Utah County through Salt Lake County to Davis County. Although still under development, the trail offers more than 23 trailheads, most of which have restrooms and water fountains and some of which have picnic areas and playgrounds.

The zero mile marker is alongside Saratoga Road in Utah County. The trail goes 9 miles north to the Jordan Narrows Trailhead, just past the county line in Utah County, following the river closely, then has a 10 percent grade up to the Jordan Narrows, where trail-goers will enjoy wide vistas.

From the park, a short segment extends north, but quickly dead-ends. Another disconnected section runs through new residential development in southern Bluffdale, but the main trail resumes at the Spring View Farms Trailhead on W. 14600 S. The Salt Lake County website provides a map of gaps in the trail north of here.

From its northern end at Interstate 215, a connection to the 14-mile Legacy Parkway Trail is possible, which heads north to Farmington and connects to the 23-mile Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail, which continues north to Roy.

Never not gotten a flat tire here!

Have not ridden this trail in years due to the goat head thorns. With newer sections and connections added I thought I'd give it another shot. Many sections were really fun, some a little bumpy due to roots under the asphalt. I rode from 45th south, north more

I agree trail needs to better marked.

The trail is a nice ride not technical. It is difficult to follow and needs to better marked. I want to ride more of the trail, but it appears some sections are closed. Restrooms are good in some areas and very poor in others, The ones by Gardner Village more

Horribly Marked Trail

This trail was nice to ride on, but it is HORRIBLY marked. My mom and I were planning on doing an 80 mile bike ride so we wanted to bike the entire trail. We were so confused the whole time. There were so many different turn offs that weren't marked. more
