Historic Utah Southern Rail Trail Description

The Historic Utah Southern Rail Trail runs through Lehi, about 20 miles south of Salt Lake City, along a Utah Transit Authority rail corridor. It begins near the Utah County line by a sprawling Cabela's retail complex and travels southeast for about 3 miles, roughly paralleling Interstate 15. The trail is wide and paved, offering plenty of room for both bicycle and pedestrian users. The views are mostly of open countryside, but shaded benches along the way offer comfortable places to rest.

At Timpanogos Highway (State Route 92), trail users looking for a longer trek will want to pick up the new Murdock Canal Trail, which extends southeast all the way to Orem. Rail history buffs may instead want to head a little farther south from the trail's end to visit the state's oldest railroad depot at 225 E. State Street. The trail does not yet reach the depot, but it's hoped to one day and also continue farther south to the city's boundary with American Fork.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found in the shopping complex at the north end of the trail (off Chapel Ridge Road).

Historic Utah Southern Rail Trail Reviews

Lehi has closed the trail indefinitely. Freeway construction has also closed parts of the trail until summer of 2020

I rode this from Route 89 to the Murdock Trail. It is very nice to have trails without vehicles where bikers and walkers can get around. Only reason for four stars is that there is no major attraction along the way, such as a river or above average views. I'm still very grateful for this trail.

I start at 300 W near Hwy 89. I go north for about 2 mi and pick up the Murdock Trail. Very little foot or cycle traffic. Well maintained. Only one real caution crossing 1200 E.
