Location: Layton, UT
Parking: Near the trail intersection with Hill Field Road, Layton.
Trail Condition: Very good, smooth and wide, few lateral cracks but not many.
Signage: Very minimal. Not a lot required but would have been good to have signage indicating end of D&RGW and start of Legacy Trail on South end of trail.
Comments: Rode the trail on Wednesday afternoon with a lot of traffic on the trail. Encounter a wide variety of trail users. Yet, not so many users as to make riding not enjoyable. This very much an old rail bed and is pretty much a straight shot. Still a nice ride. Rode the southern portion of trail from the intersection with Hill Field Road down to the Legacy Trail. Lots and lots of street crossings with safety barriers that have to zig-zag through, sort of annoying.
Don’t bother riding south of the Riverdale city office unless you want a 1mile quick loop - at the footbridge the trail turns to gravel. Head north and its lovely with a few short inclines; great for beginner cyclists to learn gearing and control. Lots of dogs and pedestrians so take it easy and ride early!
This is a great trail! Very scenic, pretty flat and easy. Takes a little over an hour to bike.
If I had a horse or a fat bike, maybe, but I won’t be coming back on my road bike fitted with 32mm Schwalbe Marathoners. As another reviewer said, it’s rocks, not gravel. And heading west, there is absolutely nothing to see that would make the difficult ride through the desert worth it.
The trail from Riverdale to Fort Bonaventure is great. From the Fort north can be questionable as far as feeling safe. And about 2 miles south of Riverdale it becomes a dirt trail. So - limited safety, limited comfort for a trail that is so long!
Really enjoyed the trail, several shady spots on a hot day. Great respect from drivers when I had to cross streets, good awareness by the drivers. Can't wait to ride it again.
Walked the trail south from Riverdale about 2+ miles after you cross bridge the trail is gravel but still a great walk there is several place to take a rest if you need to also couple of place to have a pinic a great trail for a walk or bike ride.
Great little trail it is paved and if you are a railfan you will love it. I walked it and the frontrunner was parked there so i got a pic of it and uploaded it here. If you want a nice short walk give it a try it is also a great trail for beginners. To get to trail head park on north side of parking lot and walk east on the north end of parking area and just before you cross rail look right for trailhead sign.
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.
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.
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.
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!)
