Easy hike along the shore of ancient Lake Bonneville The Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BSLT) is a hiking and bicycle path running across the foothills of the Wasatch Range along a route that follows the eastern shoreline of ancient Lake Bonneville. My report refers to the North Davis County sections, East of Layton, Kaysville and Fruit heights. Since there are multiple access points and its proximity to the local community the BSLT is a heavily used trail by joggers hikers and mountain bikers. The trail runs along the 5200 feet level usually just above the homes and farms of these three small communities The BSLT is perfect for an evening hike or a early morning walk or bike ride. Few people walk the trail from end to end most prefer a mile or two out and back. While on the trail you will enjoy deer and birds and the peaceful sounds of any of the seven creeks that cross the trail The views are beautiful with the Great Salt lake and Antelope Island to the West, the sunsets are incredible.

Not a bad little hike to take the kiddos on. Very easy and linear. I rated a two because what I look for in a hike is an escape from the city and you can still here the cars and hear the noises of people's back yards. Very clean and well maintained though. Great for a quick trail run just to stay in shape.

Trail isn't marked very well. Nice hike for March. A little ice here and there, but not to worry. Current conditions: https://youtu.be/b7upSFl9L2M
