Description Suggest an Edit

The Porter Rockwell Trail runs between Pioneer Avenue in Sandy and Minuteman Drive at Point of the Mountain. The paved trail follows an abandoned rail corridor through the suburbs south of Salt Lake City and provide an important link for neighborhoods, schools, businesses, shopping and recreation.

There is one short break in the trail between E 12300 S and Park Road. Heading southbound, the trail picks up again at Park Road at Draper City Park (behind the library). Use Pioneer Road (E 12400 S) and S 970 E to link the disjointed segments.
