Provo River Parkway

The trail is closed about a thousand yards west of the Lakeshore trailhead. Construction on a new bridge that's being built.

Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail

Tedious and Buggy

October, 2021 by abele40000

I started in Layton going south in October for a leisure ride, and my first few miles were just tedious with all the dangerous gates you have to virtually walk through...but the worst was the sea of gnats that covered me. It finally opened up a bit with fewer and less-trafficked crossings and fewer bugs, but of course I had to return... next time I'll drive to Farmington and head south.

Bridge is completed!

It was so great to ride over Timpanogos Hwy this morning!

Barney's Creek Trail

This trail was pretty short, but of course the beautiful mountains were visible, and there were some lovely parks, houses, trees, and schools to be seen.

Provo River Parkway

Provo Canyon Bike Trail

July, 2021 by xn7ji6dxtw

Scenic but very poor condition. Had to avoid many holes and roots. Foot traffic was very congested at times. Had to avoid hordes of kids in packs running cross country!

Old Emigration Trail

Potential for Better

July, 2021 by acewickwire

Started at Jensen Nature Park with intent to ride the loop at south end of trail but lots of construction and confusing detours. Returned to Jensen Nature Park and rode north to W 300 N street. Looked like trail ended there, so turned around. My bad for not consulting map and would have seen left turn for short distance and then continue north. Oh well. There is some signage along the trail but only one sign post indicating Old Emigration Trail the remainders have other names for different segments, I guess. Anyway not a clearly marked trail and several places of construction on going. Trail surface was fine and plenty wide enough. Maybe at a later date if back in the area would give it another try.

Provo River Parkway

Fun and Beautiful Ride

July, 2021 by boy_jay

July 2021 We started at the boat docks and went all the way up and back. The trail is not bad but has a few issues. It is bumpy in places and a few of the tunnels under the roads become so narrow that you will collide if someone is coming the other direction. We quickly learned to pause and yell to see if anyone was already under/inside. You bypass suburban neighborhoods and then follow the Provo River up the beautiful canyon past Bridal Vail Falls and to a small but picturesque park. Overall a fun ride.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

Beautiful walking trail. Completed a 20 mile Scout hike with my son's troop.

Weber River Parkway

great

June, 2021 by dfms7dpsvb

I started from the north side and rode south until I reached 4400 by riverdale. There are some areas that need maintenance but overall in good shape. Sometimes it’s hard to follow but I used the map on here. My only complaint is the sharp turns that make it hard to see oncoming traffic so I’m hesitant to pick up speed in some areas. It’s great for a casual ride with lots of shade.

Bingham Creek Trail

Short neighborhood trail

June, 2021 by wasatch49

A fun short trail. Good for walking or biking with kids. Minor hills. Too crowded and too short for serious biking.

Mountain View Corridor Trail

Good trail that allows for any distance you choose.

June, 2021 by wasatch49

I have biked and run this trail from end to end multiple times. I love that it's easily accessible from my home and I can do any distance. Mostly mild ups and downs; it does have a couple of challenging hills, but that's part of the workout, right? In warm weather you may want to plan for early morning or evening use do to the lack of shade.
I have seen comments that this trail uses the emergency lane on the highway and is dangerous. Not actually true. There IS a designated bike lane on the highway, but I never use it. The separate paved trail runs parallel to the highway, but does switch sides a couple of times. These changes need better signage. Watch for these changes especially at the intersections of 13400 South and also 7800 South. Staying on the separate path is much safer and provides a more scenic and more enjoyable experience.
Side note - I have seen many types of birds, several deer, and a five foot bull snake.
