Mapleton Lateral Canal Trail Description

The Mapleton Lateral Canal Trail is a recreational trail on the eastern side of Mapleton in the Utah Valley. The trail travels the length of the city, starting on Canyon Drive in Springville and continuing south along 1900 East Street, west on 1600 North Street and the rest of the way south atop the Mapleton Lateral Canal. Mountains rise in the background. The trail surface is smooth asphalt, and 10-14 feet wide. Benches and trash receptacles are placed at intervals along the route. . 

Future plans will see the trail connect to the Spanish Fork trail system, but at present, it's an out-and-back trail, dead ending just north of Canyon Road/ SR6. Still, if you are interested in a longer ride, you can continue on the Hobble Creek Bike Path from the north end of this trail. 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in nearby Mapleton City Park (at the intersection of E. Maple Street and S. Main Street). From the park, travel 1 mile east along E. Maple Street to reach the trail.

You can also park in Ira Allan Sports Park (1728 South 800 West). From this park, travel 1.2 miles east along W. 1600 S. to reach the trail.

Mapleton Lateral Canal Trail Reviews

Well maintained asphalt trail close to the mountains. Beautiful views. A few street crossings but much of it, especially on the south end, is traffic free. Would be nice to see it connected to the Spanish Fork River Trail.

I love this trail it is wide and well kept. It is a nice flowing trail small ups and downs and beautiful views all around! My kids bike it easily and it’s one of our family favorites!
