Parley's Trail

Description Suggest an Edit

Parley's Trail is a paved bicycle and pedestrian trail, currently under construction, which follows the Interstate 80 corridor from the mouth of Parley's Canyon to the Sugar House Business District. Two parallel alignments are proposed for the connections between Fairmont Park in Sugar House and the Provo-Jordan River Parkway. Overall, the trail will be about 8 miles long. Parley's Trail will be the major east-west connector trail through Salt Lake City and South Salt Lake City At the mouth of Parley's Canyon, the trail now connects via a bridge over Interstate 215 to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. The Bonneville Shoreline Trail is already developed in this area, crossing Interstate 80 on two pedestrian/bicycle bridges. From the I-215 bridge, the trail will follow the Interstate 80 right-of-way past Parley's Historic Nature Park and Tanner Park to 2700 East Street. An alignment for the trail from 2700 East to 1700 East has not yet been determined, but is currently being studied. At 1700 East, the trail will pass south and then west of Sugar House Park to the site of a old railroad grade under 1300 East. A new pedestrian passageway under 1300 East is proposed to connect Sugar House Park with Hidden Hollow Natural Area and the Sugar House Business District. Using sidewalks and roadways to navigate the business district, the Trail connects to the UTA rail corridor by Fairmont Park. The trail will then proceed west in a "rails -with -trails" development, passing under Interstate 15 and over Roper Rail Yard, to connect with the Provo-Jordan River Parkway. A great deal of work and partnering needs to take place to make the envisioned route a reality. A map is attached showing the proposed route.
