I rode this trail from the Wanship parking lot to Main Street Park City and back--I avoided starting at Echo based on some of the reviews I read on this site about the soft state of the trail by the reservoir. Based on my trip, I'd say at least 75% of the trail was dirt and a bit bumpy, and the last 25% nearest Park City is paved. If you are wanting a paved route I believe you'd need to start where the trail crosses 248, or if you just want only a little bit of dirt trail you could start at the Promentory/Star Pointe trailhead. I rode a hybrid bike, and although I felt I did fine there were definitely a couple patches where the trail was pretty bumpy or gravely or had gopher holes. That said I wasn't anticipating a super groomed trail so it was pretty much what I expected. Scenery is fantastic... some farm land and river life on the front end (beavers, deer, lots of birds), open West landscape in the middle, and Park City on the end. If you are going to do a to-and-back I'd definitely recommend doing it the way I did going uphill for the first leg and downhill on the second leg (especially if it's hot).
Although the trail goes through some really beautiful countryside, it is extremely rough to ride, runs almost continuously along Interstate 80, and has very little shade. We rode only about 10 miles, from Coalville towards Park City, then had to turn around because the bumpiness was wearing us out! We ride hybrid bikes, with front suspension, but it was still very, very jarring.
I have ridden this trail many times (12-15). I start by taking the red line trax from ballpark(13th South) to gardner village. It is about 15 miles back to ballpark. I usually exit the trail at the international peace gardens, about 1000 south and ride east on 900 south and then south to the starting point. The trail condition varies as does the congestion. There are several parks with water and restrooms.
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.
