Mountain View Corridor Trail

pretty fun trail

May, 2020 by jimmy.zimmerman

We started in Daybreak, at 11400 So and rode north. Traveling north has a constant uphill grade and we were fighting a strong headwind. It gets pretty smelly near the Dannon plant. The northernmost part of the trail (north of 6200) drops in elevation really quickly, which was really fun. It would be fun to try this riding the other direction.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

Wonderful from start to finish

April, 2020 by stephaniewellsmason

My daughter and I recently set out to walk the entire JRT. We had walked only a short part of it in Murray up to this point. We were so impressed by the entire trail system! The whole route is well marked and easy to follow. There are sections that are quiet and secluded while others are closer to town and roads. There are wonderful bridges all along the trail as well. I'm proud to say we made it! I recommend this trail to everyone and am so glad to see tax dollars being put towards a wonderful outdoor experience!

Jordan River Parkway Trail

Jordan River is Cray!

April, 2020 by kristymcmurray79

Did this trail on a road bike for the first time today and it is not what I was expecting. Gorgeous nature and love the feeling, it’s crazy ups and downs the whole time between Lehi and Riverton. Love it for the beauty and the challenge. Definitely will do again.

Murdock Canal Trail

Murdock Magic

April, 2020 by kristymcmurray79

Love this trail, some ups and downs and it is a moderate challenge but not bad. I ride my road bike on it and I like it a lot. Great workout and easy access. Worst part is you ready have to be careful for kids across the whole trail and parents don’t really tell them to move. I just say “left” when I’m going to pass before I get there so they know to love over.

Mapleton Lateral Canal Trail

Beautiful Trail

January, 2020 by danpalmer48

Well maintained asphalt trail close to the mountains. Beautiful views. A few street crossings but much of it, especially on the south end, is traffic free. Would be nice to see it connected to the Spanish Fork River Trail.

Spanish Fork River Trail

beautiful trail

January, 2020 by thomaskelsiejensen

This is a favorite for family biking. We Love to start at the sports park and go up to the golf course. It’s beautiful and great for the whole family.

Mapleton Lateral Canal Trail

January, 2020 by thomaskelsiejensen

I love this trail it is wide and well kept. It is a nice flowing trail small ups and downs and beautiful views all around! My kids bike it easily and it’s one of our family favorites!

Jordan River Parkway Trail

nice

December, 2019 by astroman

Scenic, well-maintained trail. A little difficult to follow in some intersections. Much more rolling hills than most RTT.

Provo River Parkway

Utah Dazzle!

October, 2019 by koldtoess

Spending a week in Park City, we had to make the 60-minute journey to Provo for total Utah immersion. We, my youngest son & I, had an astonishing experience beginning with a superb LBS just west of BYU. We started by riding through the campus of BYU and trying to find the trail. Finally, we were guided to the trailhead by a local rider, thanks! FYI, ride the bike/walk trail north that is adjacent to N. University Ave. Beside the 1st dam, our guide said that the building to the left was the location of the first electrical college in the US. Once upon the trail, you ride up a fairly-shaded, gentle grade with the roaring Provo River and craggy mountains on your sides. You will want to stop around every corner and camp at every park. Earning your visitation to Bridal Veil Falls just make it better. You can continue to ride up by the 2nd dam to the terminus at Vivian Park, restrooms & picnic tables. While we did not go to Utah Lake due to trail construction, we rode miles through the residential areas. Pre & post ride meals at Noodles & Company and In-N-Out Burger just cranked the overall experience to “11”!

Murdock Canal Trail

Gotta love the Murdock Canal Trail!

August, 2019 by dstaub

I live close by the Murdock Canal Trail and walk or bike it almost every single day. What a wonderful trail! It’s well-kept and is used by so many people. We’re blessed to have this trail!

Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park

Echo State Park was by far the best part, though road got a bit bumpy over there. from Park City there are a few gates to get through. Mostly sun exposure, and watch out for gopher holes the first 7 miles

Mountain View Corridor Trail

not great, but it’s the only long one around

July, 2019 by dhniels

Ran about 10 miles this morning. As others have said, the northern half is the best. However, it’s a brutal, continuous uphill and not fun to run. Several huge undulations right off the bat. Combine that with the sun beating down and you’ll get absolutely worked over if it’s over 70 degrees. Spends a lot of the time straddling the highway too which I didn’t love. I would run it again but only because it’s the only longer trail around (that I know of)
