Point of the Mountain Trail Description

The Point of the Mountain Trail is the linchpin of a continuous 30-mile bike route in Salt Lake and Utah counties. Like the Porter Rockwell Trail to its north, the Point of the Mountain Trail occupies the Utah Transit Authority corridor and continues along the west side of I-15 to the Draper city limits, and the Salt Lake county border.

A bronze plaque nicknamed the Golden Spoke, invoking that other famous meeting point, is embedded into the trail where it meets the Historic Utah Southern Rail Trail in neighboring Lehi City. In Utah county, the rail trail (also called the Lehi Rail Trail) travels south to the Murdock Canal Trail, a scenic 17-mile route. Along the way, trail goers can also make connections to the regional trails including the Jordan River Parkway and the Provo River Parkway trails.

The Point of the Mountain Trail has a paved surface and is fairly flat, open to cyclists, pedestrians and their pets. The area can get dusty as it is near a gravel pit.

Parking and Trail Access

Starting in Salt Lake County, users can start at the Osborne Trailhead of the Porter Rockwell Trail and take that trail south to the Point of the Mountain Trail. There are about 14 spaces at that trailhead as well as a drinking fountain, but no restrooms. Enter the address 14084 S Osborne Lane, Draper, into your phone's map app to get driving directions.
