Legacy Parkway Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Legacy Parkway Trail is a 14-mile trail that provides a hard-surfaced walkway without any street crossings. The trail runs adjacent to the Legacy Parkway in southern Davis County. It begins at Farmington Station and parallels the Utah Transit Authority's FrontRunner, the state's first commuter rail line, for some of its journey to North Salt Lake. Although most of the route is along a busy freeway, there is a connection to the Legacy Nature Preserve, which offers more scenic surroundings.

In Centerville, the trail overlaps the Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail for a short distance, and it meets the nearly 50-mile Jordan River Parkway Trail at its southern end.

There are a number of trailheads along the way providing access to the Legacy Parkway Trail, but trail users should note that they do not offer restrooms or drinking fountains.
