Bonneville Shoreline Draper Section Trail is a 8.3 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Draper, Utah. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and mountain biking.
last november we hiked this trail it was pretty easy with small inclines here and there. my 4 year old had an easy time as well as myself considering that I was 38 weeks pregnant at the time.
The trail is located right above Hidden Valley Park has been my go to trial when my son and I need to get out of the house. We normally just hike to the bridge and back which takes about 15 minutes to get to at our slow passe. On a good day we will hike past the bridge that takes you on a narrow trail that sits right on a little drop off making it possible to see all of Salt Lake Valley as you walk along. And on our way back to the car we always stop to play at the park at the head of the trail, there is also a black path that raps around the park that is good for bike riding with little ones as well. And there is a bathroom with a nice pavilion for BBQs.
You will also find a lot of trail runners on this trail I would say that it is great for trail running seeing that it is reasonably flat and the stream at the bridge makes a nice resting spot.
Looks like Corner Canyon made the list of top scariest places in Utah!
eh, sorta boring in that it's dusty and open most of the way, plus you see the city, golf course, and people the whole time. kind of detracts from the outside appeal of hiking.
We like to start our hike at the Hidden Valley Park which is one of the trailheads for Bonneville Shoreline. To get to the cool suspension bridge head south and it's probably 1.5 miles away. My kids did it at 3 and 6 years old. It it usually takes us 2 hours or so. There is a blasted out rock you have to go through and rocks to play on.
great time, I'm a beginner so the first part was challenging. once we reached the BST it was easy and fun, no shade but a great breeze was always blowing.
This would be a great early morning hike or late evening hike. The view of Salt Lake county is pretty awesome. I however started this hike just before 1pm and the temperature was 90+ degrees. There's little to no coverage during the duration of this trail.
The trail is super easy and suitable for kids of all ages. Please be advised...there are SNAKES of all kinds who love to bask in the sun on the warm rocks and there has been reported rattle snakes seen in the park where you begin the hike.
On a less hot day, maybe in early spring, I may try this hike again. It was just ok.
Took mostly the Aqueduct Trail and criss crossed to BST to reach the suspension bridge. Easy hike. Aqueduct is more for the adults as there are steep drop offs, but doable for all ages. Going to take BST from Hidden Valley and see what the difference is. From what I've seen, nice easy hike but with little shade. Enjoy!
There are so many different trails up here. Never ending views of the city. It's open, and has a totally different feel than most hikes. Easy and enjoyable.
From Hidden Valley Park to the Suspension Bridge... Nice moderate (at most) hike with a 6,8,and 10 year olds. In a light rain...
