Legacy Parkway Trail

Used to be much better ...

June, 2018 by utah_born

Been regularly cycling this path since its opening years ago. Within recent years however, bike etiquette, safety, and general behavior has deteriorated: "Utah moms" allow their out-of-control kids to wander-ride all over the path ignoring bike / jogger traffic both directions ... they do not care. Dogs must be on a leash, but many owners attitude is, "I'll do what I want, it's my pet"... again safety of others is undermined by this kind of activity.
Cyclists in the "left [opposite] lane" often have music blasting away via ear-buds so yelling, "On Your Left" to signal your presence, literally falls on deaf ears.
It's getting to the point where riding the open road with vehicles is actually safer than the designated bike path.

Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail

Good distance, pretty flat

April, 2018 by processing_tl

Works nicely for inline skating. I've gone end-to-end over two trips. Pretty flat, straight, and smooth. Friendly people in some parts (with dog leashes and kids) so be prepared to slow down at times. Averaged 14 mph though.

The worst part about this trail is the gates which some municipalities keep in semi-closed position at road crossings. "All hail the powerful automobile" - they are not trail priority intersections for the most part and sometimes there are even signs commanding you to use a nearby intersection instead of just crossing the street. Oh well.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

Scenic, decent inline skate, plenty of obstacles

April, 2018 by processing_tl

Worth inline skating on this trail - you can get some good speed and mileage outside of the busier areas & seedier areas of the trail.

Other posters are correct, the signage is limited but it's not a big deal.

I started at James Madison Park and went south about 15 miles.

The best part about this trail is that everyone is really friendly and will wave hello.

Weber Pathways Rail Trail

Kind of interesting, excuse for an outing.

October, 2017 by lazybiker

I rode this from the trailhead at 4000 N and 2000 W on a full-suspension mountain bike, to the last gate after which the trail is not graded but is just piles of ballast, about 8 miles one way. Beyond there, I could see railcars sitting on the tracks. There are several gates of varying construction and difficulty in negotiating that must be opened and closed as you travel. The trail surface varies from hard-packed sand to very course and loose rocks. I would not recommend skinny tires on this one. I encountered no thorns or goatheads. Lots of little snakes basking on the trail, take care not to run over them. Very quiet and isolated place. Might consider a fatbike ride when the snow comes.

Weber River Parkway

Tour de Ogden

October, 2017 by pedalfree

I rode the Weber River Parkway just about daily when I lived in Ogden. It's not perfect. There are sections with tight corners and poor visibility. Several underpasses flood in the spring when runoff is high. There is also some crime and homeless campsites along the river. I've never been hassled though and I never felt unsafe. The plusses? Incredible views, lots of wildlife and just a fun urban trail riding experience. Combine this trail with the Ogden River Parkway and the Bonneville Shoreline Trail for a 30 mile loop of Ogden. If you do, it's best to tackle it on a mountain bike as the BST is quite rugged in spots.

Ogden River Parkway

50% awesome 50% awful

September, 2017 by parajared

It was a nice little trail skirting along a river and although the underpasses had issues with water pooling up for deep puddles the trail was pretty nice... except for the part where the Ogden River Parkway crosses a bridge west into Weber River Parkway. As soon as you cross that bridge west past the treatment plant into the industrial zone the trail gets a whole new vibe. Apparently locals don't ride that section much; debris, dust, twigs and such are littered across the trail whereas on the Ogden River section the debris seems to get scattered off the trail from usage. The Weber River section had grafitti sprayed on fences, beer cans, trash bags, papers, garbage spread everywhere. Homeless people, although seemingly friendly, not doing anything necessarily hostile were approaching me as I biked down the trail and ultimately I was just wierded completely when I came across a human turd someone flopped on the side of the trail. Someone had used a picnic bench as their toilet (TP spread everywhere) and that was it, I spun it around and got the heck out of there at that point. The other section of the Weber River was fine (the gravel section).

I got a kick out of the crazy signs posted along the trail
-no paintball allowed (is this really so much of an issue that it needs a sign)
-no lighting fires and shooting fireworks west of the river (I guess east of the river is totally fine though)
-no discharging of firearms into the city pond. (lol, really Ogden!)

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.

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.
