Pleasant 28 mile bike ride on the mostly gravel/dirt surface of an old railroad bed. The trail follows an old railroad grade 28 miles from Park City to Echo Utah. If ridden from south to north it is an easy flat to downhill ride. The northern section from Coalville to Echo is somewhat overgrown with lots of puncture causing stickers.
Rode this trail from Promontory to Coalville. It's a gentle 2% downhill grade on former rail tracks. The Trail is between the lanes of I80 so it's plenty loud at times along with truck fumes. As you move further past Wanship, the noise / smells decrease however the trail is starting to get overgrown. There have been a number of horses / cows on the trails so it's now quite bumpy. Overall, the trail is OK but there are plenty of other options that are much nicer in the area.
Paved way, pretty easy stuff
This is a great 25 mile bike ride from Park City to the West end of Echo Res. It is a smooth dirt trail with lots of great views.
