The Provo River Parkway weaves its way through state, city and county parks, as well as residential and commercial areas following the Provo River, then along University Avenue (US 189) to the mouth of Provo Canyon. Its 15-mile length stretches from Utah Lake State Park in Provo to Vivian Park in Provo Canyon. At its northern end, the trail passes the base of Bridal Veil Falls for a spectacular view.
The route is a Class 1, multi-use, gradual inclined, paved trail with a couple of short steep climbs. From Utah Lake State Park to the mouth of Provo Canyon, the path is 8-10 feet wide and nearly flat most of the way. In the canyon, the surface widens to 16 feet, and rises a little more steeply. There are some surface street crossings and some narrow underpasses. Water, restrooms, parking and picnic areas are available in the parks along the route.
The pathway is also part of a regional effort called the Golden Spoke network, which connects more than 100 miles of paved trails from Provo to Ogden.
In Provo, many amenities can be found in Utah Lake State Park (4400 W. Center St.) at the southern tip of the trail, as well as camping opportunities. Continuing on the trail through Provo, other options for parking and restrooms include: Fort Utah Park (200 N. Geneva Rd.), Paul Ream Wilderness Park (1600 W. 500 N.), and Exchange Park (900 700 W.).
Mid-trail in Orem, parking and restrooms can be found in Mt. Timpanogos Park on Provo Canyon Road (Highway 189).
On the northern end of the trail, parking, restrooms, and a water tap can be found in Canyon Glen Park (1501 E. Provo Canyon Rd.) and Nunns Park (off Highway 189); the latter also offers another option for camping.
