Jordan River Parkway

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Jordan River Parkway weaves in and out of urban areas, parks and marshy riversides as it follows the Jordan River, traversing north from Utah Lake 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 at N40.35142 W111.90317 in Utah County, alongside Saratoga Drive. 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. At that point, there is a 3-mile gap to the Spring View Farms Trailhead on 14600S. The Salt Lake County website provides a map of other gaps in the trail.

From its northern end at I-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.
