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.

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!

Provo River Parkway

Part of our Utah vacation

June, 2016 by caroljeicher

We rode this trail a couple weeks ago while vacationing in Utah. Beautiful scenery. Loved the huge waterfall and riding by the rushing river. It is well maintained with LOTS of people using it. We started at the Virgin Park Trailhead. We did not ride through the city part. Drove to the Lake and rode that end also. There is a great/beautiful train ride out of Heber City that goes to Virgin Park where the the rails end and the Trail starts. Then it goes back to Heber City. We rode the train, then jumped in our car and drove back to the Trailhead and got on the trail. One can really see the rails to trails concept as the railroad tracks literally end and the trail begins. Fun day filled with historic appreciation!

Murdock Canal Trail

An email from my co-rider on Murdock Canal Trail

July, 2015 by eelizon

Wow, what a hero you are! That is a lot of miles in two days. I want to go Saturday for sure...lets do 55! Should we do the Murdock canal trail again? I liked that ride.

Murdock Canal Trail

Worthy of all level bikers

July, 2015 by eelizon

This was the 1st time on Murdock. The reviews and facts on this site helped alot in deciding to ride this 17 mile trail.
Coming from north I15 we got to Thanksgiving Point, and drove about 1.5 miles east to the very start of the trail and began our ride above it's heavy intersection. Parked at the side of the road by the car dealership, crossed the road and began riding. The riding was wonderful, trail is marked well and is wide. Only confusing part was when we got to a park which everyone who rides this far on the Murdock trail will get to this park. No real marking of which way to go but I assume it's because any way through the park will keep you on the trail, at the park entrance it's best to make a right but if you continue east you'll hit a main road we went right. From the right turn, about a 1/2 mile there is a bathroom and a nice map and entrance back onto the trail. The 2 bathrooms we hit were clean! There are bathrooms all along the way.
At about mile 9 or at least after the park on the trail I saw one drinking fountain on the east of the road with a nice covered rest stop. Beyon (heading south) on the westside is a vending machine! It looked stocked but I didn't check it out.
The ride is nice, roosters,barns, close view of the mountains and lake. There are steel bars for bikers to pass through but for safety reason, to cross streets. At the end of the trail we continued east about 2 miles get onto the Provo River Trail. This was a wonderful connection with a very gradual climb to a close up view of Bridal Falls. The trail is older could use an uplift, the cool thing is the trail is split in 3 sections. 1 for walkers, 1 for bikers going east & 1 lane for bikers going west. Great idea!
After Bridal falls we continued up east on the trail for 2 miles and hit a park for a well deserved break. Bathroom no so great here.
All in all the trip took us 2.24 hrs up and roughly 2.10 hrs down. There was 1 challenging hill that you have to do on the Murdock but nothing on the Provo River Trail. Our total roundtrip mileage for 7-18-2015 was 49.8 miles. We started about 7:15 am with light jackets on and we were back into the car about noon and it was now about 82 degrees or more.
Both trail are really good but together I thought incredible to bike ride on.

Provo River Parkway

Please control the beaver population

December, 2014 by provoriverlover

Near the point where the trail reaches Utah Lake, the stand of cottonwood trees along the river is being decimated by beavers. If this continues, what was a lovely wooded trail/river scene will be reduced to an eyesore. Please call the Utah DPR and ask them to remove the beaver to a more remote and less sucecptable location.

Provo River Parkway

great for runners, not bikes

October, 2014 by rustytf2

Scenic with shade. Some spots are unsafe for bikes but I routinely run through at about 10 mph without problems. Great for walking too.

Provo River Parkway

Needs work

July, 2014 by flashmobbinzombiemomma

For the most part the path is paved and pretty wide with room to pass. However, as another reviewer mentioned before from Geneva for about a half mile East the path is very narrow, unlit and generally unsafe. Whoever maintains this trail needs to at the very least paint some lines or do something. At another point, there is an under pass that cuts nearly 90 degrees.

Murdock Canal Trail

This ride is a must-do!

June, 2014 by bkel

I rode this trail from the Bull River Trailhead in Lehi to Pleasant Grove and was pleasantly impressed (appox. 19 miles RT). This trail connects up with what appears to be an extensive trail system linking many neighborhoods and other trails. Ample signage directs you to the other spurs and trailheads along the way. There is a small portion of the trail that takes you out onto Alpine Highway, but there is a generous bike path and a sidewalk if you feel exceptionally cautious. The Murdock Canal Trail meanders through quiet suburbs and bucolic farmland, with not much traffic on a Sunday morning. You will also see impressive views of Utah Lake, Mount Timpaganos and the Lone Peak Wilderness area. Underpasses give you a little variation in terrain, and there are a few street crossings over quiet residential streets. I look forward to riding the remaining 8 miles past Pleasant Grove.

Provo River Parkway

Beautiful Scenic but sections are unsafe

April, 2014 by variant530

I rode the Provo river parkway trail from Utah Lake to Vivian park on 4/25/2014. The section from the mouth of the Provo Canyon to Vivian park is spectacular and a great ride. However, the section from the mouth of the Provo Canyon to Utah Lake is pitiful and not fit for riding, in fact I would caution anybody to be very aware when using this section as the trail has huge ruts in the asphalt making cycling very difficult. Even walking and pushing a stroller would be difficult. In addition the sections going under roads are unlit and very dark as well as about 3 feet wide making it impossible for two people to pass while going opposite directions in total darkness. The design of this section of trail is not conducive to safe use. In addition entire corridors are fenced in giving no escape should it be necessary. I hope this section of the parkway is modernized as I wont ride it again until it is. I would be safer to ride in the streets with the cars.

Great trail!

I rode this trail today from the Orem TH up to Highland and was extremely impressed! The trail is clean, well-paved, and wide; I appreciated the benches and bathroom along the way. Will ride again! Very very nice.
