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”!
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!
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
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)
We too were disappointed with the trail from Utah Lake because of significant construction. We went about 2 1/2 miles before we were blocked. New asphalt was laid within site of where we stopped ( so tempting to ignore the barriers), and I know there has been a LOT of rain this year. The reviews have been good, so I hope to do it when the construction is done. We just drove over to the Provo River trail ( starting at the north shore of Utah Lake) to get some mileage in and enjoyed that as an alternative. Riding a bicycle with the Wasatch Mountains as a backdrop is a good day in the saddle. Provo was asphalt in pretty good condition but both trails showed some age( tree root issues) in spots.
So disappointed as we had been looking forward to this ride on our visit to Provo. Unfortunately, about 2 miles from the Utah State Park end the trail is closed due to construction. They had posted a detour that looked like an easy reroute through a neighborhood but the gate was closed and we could not take their detour. We we able to make our own detour but when we found the section that the detour was to take us to a new closure for construction was posted. Out we headed again on the 2nd detour. When we were finally able to reach the trail it was very loose gravel.
The north end is great, paved with only a few traffic intersections/crossings. Then after Daybreak for some reason instead of asphalt the path parallel to the highway is a cement sidewalk with seams. It is also very messy, lots of rocks and debris. So you’re either riding on the sidewalk or the highway shoulder (the “bike path”). Once you get Grand View Peak Drive in Riverton the parallel path disappears completely and you’re on the shoulder. I only use the first 12 miles of this trail from 4100 South to Daybreak.
I road part of the trail from the Redwood Trailhead Park to the River Oaks Golf Course and back again. There is a severe lack of signage to show you the main trail and you end up taking lots of wrong turns or continually stop to check if you need to take a turn or not. This gets a bit frustrating as you don't get a nice flowing ride, but rather a stop start ride all the way. I think I took about six or seven wrong turns and had to back track. Other than that, the trail could do with some maintenance. There are lots of cracks due to roots under the tarmac and some of the bridges could do with resurfacing, but it didn't worry me too much. Forgetting about the negatives, it is a really nice ride along the river and you don't have to deal with traffic which is great. The view of the mountains is awesome especially as you get further south. If I'm in Salt Lake City again, I'll definitely ride this track again, but I'll bring my GPS next time as it will save a lot of headaches. I would recommend this track, but bring your GPS and keep an eye out for the strong southerly wind. Makes for a strong head wind on the way south, but great for coming back.
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 !
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.
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.
Lehi has closed the trail indefinitely. Freeway construction has also closed parts of the trail until summer of 2020
