Prospector Rail Trail Description

The Prospector Rail Trail enhances connectivity both within West Bountiful, and between West Bountiful and other communities. The multipurpose trail occupies a former railroad right-of-way for 3 miles, beginning at Porter Lane and terminating near the intersection of N 900 W and W 400 N streets, traveling through mostly suburban areas.  It intersects with the Legacy Parkway Trail, and also forms the southern portion of the Denver & Rio Grande West Rail Trail, which extends all the way to Roy, about 20 miles north of West Bountiful.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the Birnam Woods Trailhead (N. 830 W.) in Centerville,  which is shared with the Legacy Parkway Trail. West of I-15 just over the overpass is the beginning of the trail. There are several areas near by to park including an elementary school, or parking on the shoulder.
