The Jordan River Parkway Trail weaves in and out of urban areas, parks and marshy areas as it follows the Jordan River for nearly 50 miles, traveling from the northwestern corner of Utah Lake north through Salt Lake City. Along the way, the trail offers nearly two dozen trailheads, most of which have restrooms and water fountains and some of which have picnic areas and playgrounds.
The zero mile marker is alongside Saratoga Road in Utah County. The trail goes 9 miles north to the Jordan Narrows Trailhead, just past the county line in Utah County, following the river closely, then has a 10 percent grade up to the Jordan Narrows, where trail-goers will enjoy wide vistas.
From its northern end at Interstate 215, a connection to the 14-mile Legacy Parkway Trail is possible, which heads north to Farmington and connects to the 23-mile Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail, which continues north to Roy. All three trails are part of the Golden Spoke trail network, which connects more than 100 miles of trail between Ogden and Provo.
There are numerous places to park along the trail. At the trail's southern end, parking is available in Inlet Park (6800 N. Saratoga Rd.) in Saratoga Springs.
Mid-trail, the Jordan River Rotary Park (973 West 12300 South) in Draper offers a good rest stop with picnic tables and restrooms in addition to parking.
At the northern end of the trail, Riverside Park (1490 W. 600 N.) in Salt Lake City makes a for a pleasant starting or stopping point for a trail trip as it provides parking, restrooms, covered picnic tables, drinking fountains, and athletic facilities.
