9 Line Trail Description

The 9 Line Trail is a short paved pathway along a former Union Pacific Railroad corridor in Salt Lake City. The line once carried much of the city's passenger rail traffic to the now out-of-service (but still standing) Union Pacific Depot. Running parallel to W. 900 S. for much of its route, the corridor remains useful, providing a nice transportation and recreation alternative to the road for cyclists, skaters, walkers and runners.

There is currently a small gap in the trail between 1100 W. and the Jordan River where a railroad trestle is awaiting rehabilitation and conversion for trail use. Fortunately, an existing trail bridge at 1100 W. leads to the nearly 50-mile Jordan River Parkway Trail on the north side of the river. Take that trail a short distance east for an easy detour around the gap.

From the 9 Line Trail's eastern end, cyclists can continue via bike lanes on W. 900 S. to reach additional bike lanes heading north on S. 200 W. towards downtown. If you want to trek even farther, the Utah Transit Authority's 900 South Station—served by all three of the agency's TRAX light rail lines—is located at the intersection of the two roads. Leave your bike at one of the racks on the corner and hop on board to travel throughout Salt Lake County.

Parking and Trail Access

There are no official parking lots for the 9 Line Trail, but parking can be found along many of the cross streets. Alternatively, park at 9th South River Park at the end of Genesee Avenue and take the Jordan River Parkway Trail east or west to access either of the 9 Line Trail's two segments.
