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

First time riding this trail. It is a hidden gem. Well maintained with a few cracks and bumps. Trail closed at the far west end that circles the frisbee park. Careful on the tight twisting turns to the underpass. Highly recommend but hope it doesn't get too crowded.
It was so great to ride over Timpanogos Hwy this morning!
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.
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!
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.
Beautiful walking trail. Completed a 20 mile Scout hike with my son's troop.
A fun short trail. Good for walking or biking with kids. Minor hills. Too crowded and too short for serious biking.
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.
This is really one of the best trails in Utah. The only issue is that it can have heavy use at times. Even then, it’s wide and smooth with great views all around. We’ve cycled the complete trail many times in all seasons and never been disappointed.
Provo River Parkway is a mixed route that is hard to beat. From the lake (but see below) to the babbling river, to quiet residential areas, following an easy track along a main thoroughfare is hard to notice with the spectacular mountains in plain view. It's really quite good. The cherry on top is the ride up the canyon. Five miles of up can sound intimidating, but the grade is mostly low and the route is accessible to adv beginners. The views all along are fantastic, but Bridal Veil Falls and Vivian Park hollow are worth the effort.
I would have given five stars, but the route on the Utah Lake State Park end is still a mess (May 18,2021). The trail is closed at the first two trailheads starting at the lakefront access. We used N Geneva Rd, where the trail is also closed. Basically, everything west of I-15 is hit or miss. Expect unmarked detours. We were able to follow W Center St to Independence and back to the trail. Center St by I-15 looks like a major highway. There is a wide sidewalk just after the underpass that is easy to miss (and of course is not marked).
It's also a little confusing at W 2230 N St. The trail is marked closed. It appears that it will eventually continue along the river. The correct unmarked detour goes along 2230 St for about 1/2 mile. Turn left on the wide walkway at University Ave (Rt 189) and you're on your way to the canyon.
Also, the trail is often marked as three lanes, two for bikes in each direction and one for pedestrians. However, it was common to come around blind corners and encounter runners or walkers in the bike lanes. Be alert.
