Provo River Parkway

best trail in the Southwestern United States

September, 2017 by parajared

I thought the scenery on the canyon section of the ride to be pretty jaw-dropping, Bridal Veil Falls and Vivian Park a site to behold. I thought the lower section of the trail near Utah Lake to be rather nice but the middle section through town to be quite skippable. It seems that roots have grown under the asphalt and pushed the trail up making for some slow cycling (about 6mph) due to how uneven the surfaces was. I didn't like squeezing down skinny sidewalk sections through town, I didn't like stopping at cross-walks. I would recommend the Provo Canyon section of the trail only.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

Nice urban trail

September, 2017 by kerund

Rode south from Rose Park. There are quite a few road crossings, but the trail is well-maintained and pleasant to ride. There are several parks along the route that have restroom facilities. As others have said, the signage is bad, but just keep the river in sight.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

Awesome Ride

September, 2017 by wolfepack099

visiting from WA State, found this route on TrailLink. A short 10 minute ride from the Air BNB I was staying at. beautiful ride. Rode south from South Jordan about 16 miles and back into town. Well kept trail, clear of goatheads!!, Great facilities/water every couple of miles. One of the nicest trails I've been on recently. Wish I had more time to do more of it.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

400 S SLC to Thanksgiving Point

September, 2017 by mspong

Overall, it was a slightly frustrating experience, mostly due to the lack of signs. St. George, for example, provides excellent signage with distances, times to points of interest for both walkers and cyclists, and importantly arrows pointing the way. On the Jordan River Trail I made several false turns, that were quickly rectified by frequent reference to my GPS. If you are new to this trail, I would highly recommend bringing a GPS. Eagle Scout candidates: take note that adding signs would make an excellent project.

There were many sharp turns that forced a severe reduction in speed. There were some boardwalks and bridges with wood planks across the many river crossings. Many places had tree roots causing damage to the surface of the trail, and some places were only pedestrian sidewalks which were bumpy. Most of the trail had deep cracks every hundred feet or so. Lack of signage, sharp turns, bridges and general bumpiness caused maintaining speed to be very difficult, especially at the north end of the trail. Generally, the trail conditions improved toward the south but certainly were not ideal throughout the length of the trail. The Murdock Canal Trail in Utah County sets a very high standard.

The trail is mostly level, except near the south at the Point of the Mountain. At each point where I thought I might build and maintain speed, I was disappointed with a sharp turn accompanied and/or motorized vehicle barriers which forced speed reductions.

There are several very nice views along the way. It is an excellent alternative to riding in traffic. Mostly the trail kept me off the surface streets and importantly avoided busy road crossings with underpasses. There were occasional places with restrooms/water fountains, mostly toward the north.

Other reviewers mentioned safety concerns toward the north of the trail, to which I would agree there were a few sketchy people in sleeping bags at some of the parks adjacent to the trail. The rest of the trail I was generally greeted by the typically friendly gestures of other cyclists nodding/waving to each other.

Generally I would assess the Jordan River Trail as a pedestrian and non-serious cyclist trail. The trail is usable, but I would prefer something like the ride up to Snowbird, the Alpine Loop, Murdock Canal Trail, ...

Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park

It is gravel

August, 2017 by roundhouse77

This trail is not asphalt and concrete it is mostly gravel with some asphalt. It is harder to do gravel and you need a different bike. So I think the description that you see needs to be fixed.

Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park

Great trail, but know what you are getting into...

August, 2017 by pmajnik

I rode this trail from the Wanship parking lot to Main Street Park City and back--I avoided starting at Echo based on some of the reviews I read on this site about the soft state of the trail by the reservoir. Based on my trip, I'd say at least 75% of the trail was dirt and a bit bumpy, and the last 25% nearest Park City is paved. If you are wanting a paved route I believe you'd need to start where the trail crosses 248, or if you just want only a little bit of dirt trail you could start at the Promentory/Star Pointe trailhead. I rode a hybrid bike, and although I felt I did fine there were definitely a couple patches where the trail was pretty bumpy or gravely or had gopher holes. That said I wasn't anticipating a super groomed trail so it was pretty much what I expected. Scenery is fantastic... some farm land and river life on the front end (beavers, deer, lots of birds), open West landscape in the middle, and Park City on the end. If you are going to do a to-and-back I'd definitely recommend doing it the way I did going uphill for the first leg and downhill on the second leg (especially if it's hot).

Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park

Not what we expected.

July, 2017 by rsbkeys

Although the trail goes through some really beautiful countryside, it is extremely rough to ride, runs almost continuously along Interstate 80, and has very little shade. We rode only about 10 miles, from Coalville towards Park City, then had to turn around because the bumpiness was wearing us out! We ride hybrid bikes, with front suspension, but it was still very, very jarring.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

Red line trax ride

July, 2017 by ricpratt@comcast.net

I have ridden this trail many times (12-15). I start by taking the red line trax from ballpark(13th South) to gardner village. It is about 15 miles back to ballpark. I usually exit the trail at the international peace gardens, about 1000 south and ride east on 900 south and then south to the starting point. The trail condition varies as does the congestion. There are several parks with water and restrooms.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

Never not gotten a flat tire here!

September, 2016 by ronthematson

Have not ridden this trail in years due to the goat head thorns. With newer sections and connections added I thought I'd give it another shot. Many sections were really fun, some a little bumpy due to roots under the asphalt. I rode from 45th south, north to about 200 southish in salt lake where it looked like the trail ended. I turned around and rode south to "point of the mountain" area. After 5 or 6 wrong turns that took me off the designated route due to NO markings, and the goat head thorns I found in my tires when I got home, I.will not be going back soon.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

I agree trail needs to better marked.

July, 2016 by donaldmorgan1245

The trail is a nice ride not technical. It is difficult to follow and needs to better marked. I want to ride more of the trail, but it appears some sections are closed. Restrooms are good in some areas and very poor in others, The ones by Gardner Village are horrible and whoever is responsible for this section should be ashamed!

Gravel bliss

June, 2016 by loriosmith

This is one of my favorite gravel rides. The downhill to Echo is fun, the return is a grind. Well worth the trip!

Provo River Parkway

Great Conversational Bike Ride

June, 2016 by brucebartholomew

Dropped off a car at Utah Lake State Park and then rode DOWNHILL from Vivian Park. Left at 7:30 pm, took 1 hr 20 minutes. Not hot, little exertion. Sure there's some bumps and underpasses, but they add character to the ride. A cool slice of Provo through river bottoms, backyards, commercial zones, city parks and pastures. Not for serious cyclists but a great way to spend an evening with someone you like to be with. Pedestrians, skaters, dog lovers, couples, families--everyone I said hello to was smiling!
