Great Trail

Completed this trail, nice gentle slopes and well maintained.

Murdock Canal Trail

One of the nicest paved bike trails I have seen. As wide as a lane on a road.

Parley's Trail

Uber Urban Trail

October, 2023 by sirlward

Parley’s trail begins within the intersection of Interstates 80 and 215 BeltLoop as it T’s off the the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. It quickly drops down into Parley’s Nature Preserve - which is the only real piece of nature you’ll encounter along this Uber Urban trail. From there you’ll closely follow interstate 80 into Sugarhouse Park then after winding through Sugarhouse business district the trail becomes aligned with the UTA S-Line light rail east to South Salt Lake. From here the trail meanders with often poor signage along city streets until it joins year another UTA light rail line (Green Line) as it crosses rail yards, interstate exchanges and finally meets its end as it T’a into the Jordan River Trail.

Parley's Trail

The trail is now complete!

October, 2023 by robmidgley

The local media has been covering its completion so we went and checked it out. There are some obscure spots where better signage would have helped to navigate. We started on the east end, Grandeur Peak Trailhead. Going west you stay south of I-215 until 1700 East, where you cross to the north side of the freeway and follow the south and west edge of Sugarhouse Park where the trail goes under 1300 East. Just past the sugar beet statue, turn left out onto Wilmington Avenue.

Ogden River Parkway

Great Trail!

September, 2023 by joshua.w.schulze

We started at the North end near the Dinosaur park. Awesome shade covers most of the trail the skirts the Ogden river. Trail is wide enough for comfortable traffic both ways. Plenty to see with the botanical gardens, parks, river stops, and runs by plenty of lunch options. We normally just keep going into the Weber River Trail. The Ogden River trail is one of favorite with our little ones. We feel safe and the trail is in great condition.

Pony Express Parkway Trail

Interesting history

July, 2023 by alecia.reinhardt

The trail is paved and it has gradual uphill and downhill sections. Not too much other traffic on the trail. Lots of street crossings make it hard to keep up momentum at times. Some cars saw me and stopped, but a couple did not see me so make sure to watch out for traffic turning into driveways. Not much for views on the trail. It follows alongside a busy road (the pony express highway). It’s a nice area to bike and I did some biking around the houses in the area. Nice to explore. There is a city park near the trail that has bathrooms and it’s overall very nice with a playground and pickle ball courts .

Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park

We rode this trail today from Coalville to Park City and back. It's a nice ride and the noise from i80 was not as bad as we expected.

Porter Rockwell Trail

Great way to get around the point of the mountain

July, 2023 by algot

I saw some comments about cracks in the trail, and there certainly are. I ride a Mountain Bike - Ebike. The trail is significantly better than riding on the rocks and dirt. I like that once I am across 13th East and join the trail I don't have to cross a road and face auto traffic until after I am into Lehi. Great connecter to Utah County. There are streets to cross in the first mile or two, but once you are passed those, there is a lot to ride along.

Winds into Utah county (heading south) can be pretty strong, so just be aware, but when you ride back, you probably won't feel them.

I have enjoyed the rides and it is nice to see the Valley from a slightly elevated view. I also appreciate the 1/4 mile markings on the road to keep my brain engaged. Is it perfect? Not really, do I like it...well yes I do. Is it a good way to stay out of traffic? Yes it is.
Would I ride it on a recumbent bike, I don't think I would, pretty hard to be seen crossing 13200 south and then eventually 1300 East.

Ogden River Parkway

not alone!

July, 2023 by loraleecampbell

I was scared being a single woman alone! Homeless people and not being used by many others. Industrial area no pretty. South part of trail much better.

Spanish Fork River Trail

Nice, wide, quiet trail. Fields and the river running on both sides with mountain backs drop.
