Mapleton Lateral Canal Trail

Beautiful Trail

January, 2020 by danpalmer48

Well maintained asphalt trail close to the mountains. Beautiful views. A few street crossings but much of it, especially on the south end, is traffic free. Would be nice to see it connected to the Spanish Fork River Trail.

Spanish Fork River Trail

beautiful trail

January, 2020 by thomaskelsiejensen

This is a favorite for family biking. We Love to start at the sports park and go up to the golf course. It’s beautiful and great for the whole family.

Jordan River Parkway Trail

nice

December, 2019 by astroman

Scenic, well-maintained trail. A little difficult to follow in some intersections. Much more rolling hills than most RTT.

Candy Mountain Express Bike Trail

From Florida and we rode catrikes. Incline and declines were ok. Trail is like being in mountains without being a mountain biker.

Moab Canyon Pathway

Up, up & away…..

October, 2019 by koldtoess

Spending a week in Park City, we had to visit Moab and The Arches NP. What an unearthly locale in our beautiful land! We, West TN flatlanders, were planning to ride the “family friendly” pathway, but on the journey to the NP I knew my family and I were not up to the grade challenge. Not letting that deter us, we got up early in the morning and hiked up the pathway. I started early in the morning by walking east of our hotel over the pedestrian bridge that spans the CO River to the second bend; totally worth it! Then I woke my family up and we began the journey up & west. If you have legs, gears & lungs the trail is awesome albeit the road noise at first. You travel from the river through painted canyons to the windy plateau which is chocked-full of great views and mountain bike trail accesses. Bring plenty of water (C-store at the top) and check your bike’s braking system before descending.

Provo River Parkway

Utah Dazzle!

October, 2019 by koldtoess

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”!

Murdock Canal Trail

Gotta love the Murdock Canal Trail!

August, 2019 by dstaub

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!

Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail

Great trail - thank you!

August, 2019 by perry1gee

Really enjoyed the trail, several shady spots on a hot day. Great respect from drivers when I had to cross streets, good awareness by the drivers. Can't wait to ride it again.

Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park

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

Mountain View Corridor

not great, but it’s the only long one around

July, 2019 by dhniels

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)

Provo River Parkway

Under construction 6-30-2019

July, 2019 by marley69

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.
