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.
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!
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.
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.
Nice nature walk in a stunning location
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 !
