I trail ran this route and had a blast. There is shade later on in the hike but the first potion is in the sun. There was frost around the trail near the end but I was fine in my running shoes.

I hiked part of this trail with my friend. It’s not well marked so we weren’t entirely sure if we were on it. Planning to finish the rest of it.

The better place to park is at the pull off right past Heritage Park on the left across from the Zoo. Nice running trail, but it does get kinda confusing at times because you get into some business areas and you have to kinda guess where the trail goes. But it sure is pretty with options to go up the mountainside to make things more challenging if you want. Otherwise it’s a pretty casual running trail with some hills.

Great trail system with solid views and well-maintained pathways. Loved the ombre purple-pink wildflowers, and the roses along the trail back to the parking area were absolutely stunning! We'll definitely be back

Did 4 miles on the system last night! Made a comment to my partner we could run here multiple times and run a different trail every time! FUN and beautiful views. Lot's of unleashed dogs and mtn bikers!

Great views across The Valley. Well used and maintained trails. Good for trail running accessibility.
Lots of dogs around the red butte area.

Great space for running. Ample room to allow passerby’s. Muddy in the shade, but enjoyable!

Easy incline, have ran it several times from the Dry Gulch Trailhead, recommend for trail running.

Entered from Terrace Hill Drive at Couch Point. The trail was a little confusing at times. From the start to about half, the trail was not at all shady, very sunny and exposed. As we got closer to City Creek, it was more shady and cooler.

Nice views of the city. All sorts of stuff to chill or challenge. :)

Just okay. It's a relatively easy hike. the view can be great on clear days but sometimes the inversion layer or the cloud cover makes it less interesting. There isn't a lot of shade so I probably won't be doing this trail much over the summer. I take my dog and we meet a lot of other friendly dogs on this trail, so that's a bonus.

Easy going hike with pretty views. A lot of different trails you can go on throughout the shoreline. Just be mindful of no trespassing signs.

I love the BST and that it gives access to lots of other interesting areas. I wish they would continue it further south. This is mostly an open, easy trail. I generally will use the BST to get somewhere else, or for an easy trail running. Just for hiking it isn't the most interesting of trails.

This trail is easy to access and you don't have to go far for a great view, although probably not the best for a day hike if you can't handle direct overhead sunlight well

Great trail!!! We hiked until we reached the suspension bridge and it was stunning. Trail is wide and well managed.

This trail is great! There are many places to join and lots of visibility

This trail is pretty exposed, so I don't usually hit it on the very warmest, sunniest days, but the wildflowers make it worth it. It is beautiful and I can bring my dog.

To many bikers who cry when they have to slow down. So this hike is full of little biker bitches
