The Provo River Parkway weaves its way through state, city and county parks, as well as residential and commercial areas following the Provo River, then along University Avenue (US 189) to the mouth of Provo Canyon. Its 15-mile length stretches from Utah Lake State Park in Provo to Vivian Park in Provo Canyon. At its northern end, the trail passes the base of Bridal Veil Falls for a spectacular view.
The route is a Class 1, multi-use, gradual inclined, paved trail with a couple of short steep climbs. From Utah Lake State Park to the mouth of Provo Canyon, the path is 8-10 feet wide and nearly flat most of the way. In the canyon, the surface widens to 16 feet, and rises a little more steeply. There are some surface street crossings and some narrow underpasses. Water, restrooms, parking and picnic areas are available in the parks along the route.
In Orem, take exit 275 off Interstate 15, then travel east 3.6 miles on W. 800 N. (State Route 52). There is a parking area on the north side with direct access to the trail from the lot.
From US 189, take the E. 800 N. (SR 52) exit west for 0.12 mile. There are frequent access points along the pathway within Provo and at the many parks up Provo Canyon.
