Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park

Not What I Expected

April, 2019 by mpmpuckett

The first 14 miles traveling from Park City was all downhill and fast. Once we got to mile 17 until near the end the trail is in very poor condition. The horses and cows have torn the trail up and it was extremely hard to ride. It took us 4 hours in no shade to complete the trip. You must be strong and have a very good mountain bike to be happy with this section of the trail. Also all the dead deer on the side of the road were stinky and rotting (I counted at least 20), The trail follows I-80 most of the way and it is okay, but a little distracting. Now get out and ride !

Weber River Parkway

walk south

April, 2019 by nikole1

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.

Murdock Canal Trail

High Quality Southern Portion

March, 2019 by processing_tl

Did this trail on inline skates, at a decent clip ~15 mph. Started at the point where there is a private property break in the trail (and public parking/facilities) around 40.410350, -111.781484.

I chose the southern portion of the trail:
1) it's around 10 miles one way
2) it connects to the Provo River trailhead, which seems like another good trail
3) it seems to be a real trail through the neighborhoods and scenery rather than a path that follows a high speed road

Great pristine asphalt surface and scenery (mountain views, rolling hills). Major roads have underpasses and the underpasses are in good shape. There are a few at grade intersections that are a little iffy (1600N). Good mix of humanity on a Saturday from MAMILs to families - most are aware of usual trail rules so it works and is friendly.

The northern portion of the trail, which I did not try, seems to have a connection around the private property through Highland Glen Park. It then continues NW to the Thanksgiving Point tech area along Timpanogos Highway (high speed, loud, but grade separated). I think this is an intended connection to the Porter/Rockwell trail in the future, but not now - lot of construction & dust.

Intermodal Hub Trail

Ogden Intermodal hub trail

March, 2019 by nikole1

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.

Mountain View Corridor

Got a good ride out of it.

March, 2019 by ejnlemaitre

I rode from 4100 S. to the intersection with Redwood Road at Point of the Mountain and back. 18.3 miles one way. I think it is the entire length of the trail. For sure the south end was. It might have been a little more north of 4100 S.

Like the previous reviewer said, the first 9 miles or so are nice and well separated from UT85. After that not so much. The last 9.5 miles, from Old Bingham Hwy to Redwood Rd, you are riding along the fast moving traffic. The bike lane is painted on what should be the emergency lane.
Also, as the previous reviewer stated, this bike lane is covered with road grime. The only good thing about it is that it is wide. But I still wouldn't want to be there during rush hour.

This trail is not flat and was a good workout.

For me, the worst was all the trash along the trail, of all sizes. I'm hoping the cities along this otherwise nice trail are planning a spring clean-up.

This was my first time on this trail. Because of all the road grime (risk of a flat) and trash, I won't be on it often. I see myself riding it once or twice a year at the most... unless it gets cleaned up.

Mountain View Corridor

Highway Add-On

March, 2019 by processing_tl

Seems a little like the Department of Transportation wanted to build a road, and then tried to balance negative environmental factors with a grade separated bike path.

Decent execution in the northern 7 miles of the trail, aside from some pretty dicey highway intersection crossings where the trail switches from one side of the highway to the other or has to cross an arterial road. Some major long rolling hills which make a good workout. I did it on inline skates and wished I had my brakes on.

The southern portion of the trail is poorly executed because instead of grade separated rolling hills, the trail is right next to the highway and covered in highway grime. Might as well use the regular bike lane (next to 70 mph traffic).

Murdock Canal Trail

Murdock Canal Trail

February, 2019 by thejake91739

On a beautiful Saturday morning in September of 2014, my wife and I enjoyed the Murdock Canal Trail.
We started at the parking lot/restroom area on West Bullriver Road and rode all the way to the endpoint at Highway 52 before heading back. If we were to do it again, I'm sure my wife would insist we park at Mitchell Hollow Park to avoid the ravine and Dry Creek below the flood control dam between E3200 N and Canterbury Drive. Both coming and going Grandma had to walk her bike up the incline due to the steepness..
That's the only negative to this trail. For a couple of southern Californians, we appreciated the wide open spaces, rural atmosphere, and the local culture. We especially enjoyed experiencing Orem on a quiet Saturday morning by observing from the trail lacrosse leagues, family bike rides, kids on trampolines, horse paddocks, and more church spires than you can count on two hands.
In addition there are stunning mountain views, vistas overlooking Orem and Utah Lake, rest areas, and info about the Murdock Canal, which runs beneath the trail in huge pipes.
All in all, we're glad we made a point of riding this wide, well-maintained, and what we would rate easy trail (as long as you avoid Dry Creek Ravine).

Legacy Parkway Trail

nobody maintains this trail

November, 2018 by chaseogordon

Its covered in gravel or it would be just beautiful. Its unfortunate nobody is there to maintain this trail. Watch out for Horse s***. Someone should organize a community sweep. I've almost gone out with my broom but its like 20 miles. It needs a professional touch.

Legacy Parkway Trail

Legacy trail

September, 2018 by chamoco39

Excellent trail I use it mainly for rollerskiing and cycling, the only problem I see from supposedly experienced cyclist is no warning on your left etc other than that my favorite stretch.

Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park

Not bad... Nice Scenery

September, 2018 by signal.progressive

Slow upward grade from Coalville/Echo area to Park City., but not too steep. Since this is a Utah State park it would be great if more maintenance was done along the trail: cut back the vegetation overgrowth for example.
Overall, this is a great ride.

Legacy Parkway Trail

Used to be much better ...

June, 2018 by utah_born

Been regularly cycling this path since its opening years ago. Within recent years however, bike etiquette, safety, and general behavior has deteriorated: "Utah moms" allow their out-of-control kids to wander-ride all over the path ignoring bike / jogger traffic both directions ... they do not care. Dogs must be on a leash, but many owners attitude is, "I'll do what I want, it's my pet"... again safety of others is undermined by this kind of activity.
Cyclists in the "left [opposite] lane" often have music blasting away via ear-buds so yelling, "On Your Left" to signal your presence, literally falls on deaf ears.
It's getting to the point where riding the open road with vehicles is actually safer than the designated bike path.
