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!)
I've given this trail four stars mostly because the idea behind it is just so good. It connects the city's river trail network to the FrontRunner commuter rail station downtown, and that's really good because you can roll your bicycle right onto a FrontRunner train and head on down to Salt Lake City or Provo. The problem with this trail is that there's often broken glass and litter along it and there's also a car repair shop that parks their cars in a manner that encroaches on the trail. Still, if you need to get to the train, it's a great option.
This is a great trail! It's mostly flat so it's great for beginner-intermediate riders and passing through Kaysville provides a beautiful scenic view of surrounding farms, fields, and the mountains. The only down side to this trail I see is the zig-zag gates at different intervals where the trail meets road ways. I know they're there to discourage cars from turning onto the trail, but they break up the rhythm of the ride.
To be aware though that it isn't just cyclist and joggers on this trail. There are families who live in the area who use this trail for family walks with children and dogs, and you will have the occasional horse-back rider. If you would rather avoid kids, dogs, and horses, I suggest using this trail in non-peak hours.
Its okay. Could use a bit of cleaning up.
The trail is exactly what you'd expect from a rail trail: straight for long stretches, some turns, and very level. It's a raised one-lane gravel/dirt road, though motorized vehicles are not allowed. My wife and I started at the eastern trail head at W 4000 N St. / S 2000 W St., and ran out and back for an hour.
The trail was plenty roomy for running. 2-3 miles in I saw some shotgun shells, so someone uses it for clay pigeons or hunting sometimes. I would not use a road bike on it, and it may be a bit bumpy for jogging strollers.
A nice, quiet trail.
This ride is on a very bumpy, washboard, and dusty road. Be prepared for a bone jarring ride. I have done this ride several times on a gravel grinder bike (similar to a cyclocross) and although it was bouncy I loved it. I took the road from the Golden Spike Visitor Center to the Spiral Jetty. Well worth it!
Like a lot of suburban rail trails, you'll spend a lot of time rolling past people's back yards, but the views of the Wasatch Range are nice and the sections of the trail I've ridden are in good shape. Most importantly, this trail is a great transportation corridor for people who live between Roy and Farmington. It connects to the Legacy Parkway Trail and the Jordan River Trail to take you all the way into Salt Lake City and beyond to the north end of Utah Lake. Because these trails parallel the FrontRunner commuter rail line for the most part, it's relatively easy (with a little planning) to roll your bike onto the train and combine a train trip with a long bike ride. I'd like to see the northern trailhead extended along the FrontRunner line to the Centennial Trail along the Weber River in Ogden. It's only 2.6 miles and that missing link would make it possible to connect with the Bonneville Shoreline Trail and more.
This trail is scenic and enjoyable to ride but the zig-zag of the close set gate crossings is dangerous and cuts the rhythm of a ride. They are so closely set you almost have to get off your bike to go through them and then stop at a cross street.
I have a love/hate relationship with this trail. As a cycling enthusiest who rides Davis and Weber counties, it's rare that some part of my ride doesn't include at least some part of this route as a more relaxing alternative to congested traffic ways. Also, my spouse and I have walked this trail, and it's quite nice on foot.
However, I don't find that I wish to ride the whole length of the trail in a single journey due to the many crossings and the tendency to pick up goatheads, even through stopflat liners. Most crossings are not labeled, which may be a problem for someone not from this area. The barriers are easier to navigate at the crossings from Kaysville south until you meet up with the legacy trail and most south intersections are low traffic, albeit more frequent and congested with oncoming cyclists. From Layton north into Roy, traffic is heavier, the gates are harder to navigate, and the trail often doesn't line up, thus requiring a fun game of Frogger.
When it comes to riding this trail or riding the road...it depends on what hazard I feel like dealing with on any given day.
