Jordan River Parkway Trail

Beautiful walking trail. Completed a 20 mile Scout hike with my son's troop.

Weber River Parkway

great

June, 2021 by dfms7dpsvb

I started from the north side and rode south until I reached 4400 by riverdale. There are some areas that need maintenance but overall in good shape. Sometimes it’s hard to follow but I used the map on here. My only complaint is the sharp turns that make it hard to see oncoming traffic so I’m hesitant to pick up speed in some areas. It’s great for a casual ride with lots of shade.

Highway 18 Path

clockwise is the way to go

June, 2021 by aparrott58

park at the TH just outside the north entrance of Snow Canyon Park and you park for free. Travel southward on Hiway 18 and connect to the Snow Canyon park trail in St Geo. I tried the loop counterclockwise (i was lured in this direction by the stellar views of the Park. I should have followed the reviews tho). The hills on this path are over 15% - there are 3 of them. on our ebikes they were still a struggle. although there is one big hill going northward in Snow Canyon Park (entrance fee is $5 per bike versus $15 for car), the top 1.5 miles where you share the park road allows you to maybe hitch a ride with a friendly vehicle going northward (and uphill) thus allowing you to complete the loop and not push your bike uphill for 1.5 miles. the use of internal combustion engines (unless you hitch a ride with an e-car) is the way to go.

The crazy thing is that the path designers should have used switchbacks on the steep hills (there was room on all the hills) instead of paralleling the highway. At times it made more sense to bike the highway to avoid the hills (the highway hills were at a less steep grade).

Bingham Creek Trail

Short neighborhood trail

June, 2021 by wasatch49

A fun short trail. Good for walking or biking with kids. Minor hills. Too crowded and too short for serious biking.

Mountain View Corridor Trail

Good trail that allows for any distance you choose.

June, 2021 by wasatch49

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.

Legacy Parkway Trail

This is a nice trail!

May, 2021 by roachita

I like this trail, I have ridden it many times in the past, this is the first time this year. Right now there is a detour to the rail trail, looks like the Parkway trail is being paved and 'touched up', nice, thank you! I rode on a week day so not much traffic. Added bonus, there was a young fox on the trail this morning! The only thing I dislike is the diesel fumes from the vehicles on the south end where you are riding right beside the Legacy Highway.

Murdock Canal Trail

Perfect

May, 2021 by boy_jay

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

Lots to offer

May, 2021 by hahnpj

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.

Coal Creek Trail (UT)

Trail extended

Trail extended further up the canyon.

Murdock Canal Trail

The single best trail I have ever ridden

May, 2021 by fgladics

The wide smoothly paved trial runs north out of Oram, UT and follows the path of an early irrigation project north for about 17 miles. The snow covered Wasatch range to the east and Utah Lake to the west provide great scenery. Since the trail is built over the now encased irrigation canal the slope as quiet easy [+ or - 2%]. There are a few neighborhood roads to cross but the drivers were all very gracious

Murdock Canal Trail

Jordan River Parkway Trail

crappy bike trail

April, 2021 by dw920ckecl

This is a paved trail but there are gaps in the pavement about every 30 feet. I tried to ride the trail from end to end and felt beat up after 20 miles. In mid vale the trail just ends at a 4 lane highway and you have to play trigger to cross. Frustrating that such a great trail is so poorly thought out. Great for running and walking. Frustrating for longer distance cyclists.
