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.

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

Reasonably technical in several spots. Bridges over most streams. Not too busy for a Friday. Horses, hikers, mountain bikes. All friendly. Watch out for poop though. Great 10 mile ride. 2.5 hours on pedelec.

Excellent early morning run. Make sure to take a few of the off shoot trails up the draws. They the climbing is fun and the vistas are worth it!

We started at trailhead by newer home development. Beginning of trail is uphill and lush, opens up to creek that you cross and then trail is wide like dirt road that leads south. Pretty flat and super easy, but the view and vegetation makes it a great strolling hike. An good trail to frequent daily.
