May 8 2017 We actually picked up the Red Canyon trail close to the end and rode it all the way in to Bryce Canyon NP. There is a short gap in front of Ruby's outside the park where you have to share the road. The shared multi-use path picks up at the shuttle bus parking lot and goes up through Dixie NF before entering the NP. Its a wonderful trail that winds past the Visitor Center, past the Lodge, Sunrise and Sunset viewpoints and ends at Inspiration Point. Its all nice smooth asphalt. There is a park sign on the trail to stop and take your picture. A few small hills that if you arent in good shape can make you huff and puff due to the 7700' elevation. The ride down is a joy with serpentine curves through the ponderosa pine. Lots of Utah prarie dogs scurrying across the path which are an endangered and protected species. Take a bike lock since bikes arent allowed on the Rim Trail.
I've given this trail four stars mostly because the idea behind it is just so good. It connects the city's river trail network to the FrontRunner commuter rail station downtown, and that's really good because you can roll your bicycle right onto a FrontRunner train and head on down to Salt Lake City or Provo. The problem with this trail is that there's often broken glass and litter along it and there's also a car repair shop that parks their cars in a manner that encroaches on the trail. Still, if you need to get to the train, it's a great option.
This is a great trail! It's mostly flat so it's great for beginner-intermediate riders and passing through Kaysville provides a beautiful scenic view of surrounding farms, fields, and the mountains. The only down side to this trail I see is the zig-zag gates at different intervals where the trail meets road ways. I know they're there to discourage cars from turning onto the trail, but they break up the rhythm of the ride.
To be aware though that it isn't just cyclist and joggers on this trail. There are families who live in the area who use this trail for family walks with children and dogs, and you will have the occasional horse-back rider. If you would rather avoid kids, dogs, and horses, I suggest using this trail in non-peak hours.
Its okay. Could use a bit of cleaning up.
Ran this trail recently.Absolutely beautiful!Found myself just gazing at the incredible beauty of Zion during the run.There is a steady uphill grade from the Visitor Center to Canyon Junction.The first quarter mile of trail from Visitor Center is a little bumpy.So be careful.After that the Trail is quite smooth all the way to Canyon Junction.
The trail is exactly what you'd expect from a rail trail: straight for long stretches, some turns, and very level. It's a raised one-lane gravel/dirt road, though motorized vehicles are not allowed. My wife and I started at the eastern trail head at W 4000 N St. / S 2000 W St., and ran out and back for an hour.
The trail was plenty roomy for running. 2-3 miles in I saw some shotgun shells, so someone uses it for clay pigeons or hunting sometimes. I would not use a road bike on it, and it may be a bit bumpy for jogging strollers.
A nice, quiet trail.
Started the nicely paved trail on the west end at Thunder Mountain TH. Made the climb up past the two tunnels and turned around at the small bridge. Thought we were getting close to the top but could see the trail continued to climb. The climb isn't difficult (unless not used to the elevation) but seems to be fairly steady. On return down the trail stopped at the Red Canyon Visitor Center. They have some nice interpretative signs showing a variety of trails in the area with an elevation graphic. The visitor center is only about 1/2 mile from western starting point. Might want to stop there first. Plus you can get your photo with Smokey Bear taken. As my title states, pretty hard to beat this scenery.
We parked at the trailhead in Sevier, right off the interstate. There was a restroom building and ample parking at what turned out to be the high spot on the trail. No worries; we rode North on a continuous downhill, alongside a quiet highway and passing through another small town before reaching Elsinore, where the separate trail abruptly ends. The gas station there had a big signboard with "Trail Information," but it turned out to be about ATV trails so I quickly moved on. From this point the trail becomes a marked lane on the side of the road, and I returned to the parking lot. This was all uphill, but only the last half mile or less was noticeably steep.
Next we rode south to the end of the trail. Again this starts with a steep downhill which ends in a half mile or so and becomes a gentle grade the rest of the way, bypassing the historic tunnel (closed) and winding through some beautiful scenery in the canyon to its end at one junction to a group of cabins and a "no trespassing" sign, and on to an unbelievably steep trail to a footbridge, more cabins and the highway but no warning sign. Rather than walk our bikes down and back up that hill we skipped the exploration and turned around. Again, only the last hill required a big effort to climb. Total round trip distance was 32 miles.
A beautiful day, a beautiful trail with an excellent surface and just a few fallen rocks to dodge, just the right length and not another soul on the trail made this a fantastic ride.
Have not ridden this trail in years due to the goat head thorns. With newer sections and connections added I thought I'd give it another shot. Many sections were really fun, some a little bumpy due to roots under the asphalt. I rode from 45th south, north to about 200 southish in salt lake where it looked like the trail ended. I turned around and rode south to "point of the mountain" area. After 5 or 6 wrong turns that took me off the designated route due to NO markings, and the goat head thorns I found in my tires when I got home, I.will not be going back soon.
I began my ride sort of in the middle of the trail near the OHV parking lot for the Fremont trail, just across from Tom's Best Spring Road. I had read other reviews that said going from east to west would be best but I wanted to see how far east the trail went. Good news! It goes all the way in to Bryce Canyon City and into the park to Inspiration Point. I didn't ride all the way into the park as I had other plans for the day so turned around at Ruby's Inn and headed west. The trail rolls across the meadow with some fun hills to coast down and then you get your workout pedaling up the next rise.
Once back to where I started, the trail begins it's descent into Red Rock Canyon. Absolutely beautiful and what a great way to enjoy the scenery. I was really glad I was going in that direction, I only had my Tern folding bicycle with 7 gears and it would have been challenging to ride from west to east.
A must if you are in the area. If you are staying at one of the local hotels or campgrounds, take advantage of the trail and ride in to the park. Gives you an opportunity to see the pronghorn and mule deer in the forest that you might not see from the road. And you don't have to wait for a parking spot.
I have lived here in southern Utah for 6 years and this is the first time today that I rode the trail. Part of my reluctance was the fact that the trail ends basically "no where" and you then have to either turn around or get onto Hwy 12. Well, I was very surprised when I got to the end of the old trail and found an entirely new section continuing on! The sign saying "pavement ends" is still in place, but its obviously wrong. I continued on for another 3 miles until the intersection of Hwy 12 with Hwy 63 which takes you into Bryce Canyon NP. I could see that the path goes on, so my belief is that it continues onto the park! Very nice!
Challenging uphills going west to east but that becomes a screaming downhill going back.
