The Historic Orchard Pathway is a walking, running, and biking trail which, when completed, will be approximately 10 miles long and will pass through the communities of South Willard, Willard, Perry, and Brigham City. This Willard City trailhead marks the first completed section of the trail, with a 10-foot wide paved trail surface extending 1.5 miles north to the Perry City limits. Another 1.5 mile section extends south on 200 West in Willard along the west shoulder of the road. The pathway is named for its proximity to the beautiful historic orchards in the area, some of which still exist today. This area is known as "The Fruitway" because of the many peach, cherry, and apple orchards which have existed here since the time of settlement in the late 1800s. This pathway is along the abandoned Utah Idaho Central Railroad corridor. This rail line, once an electric rail service, connected Ogden, Logan, and Preston, Idaho. The rail line was used primarily for freight and passenger services. Abandoned and cleared of tracks in 1947, sections of the corridor are now owned by Willard, Perry, Brigham City, and Box Elder County. Information in this description was copied from the sign at the trailhead. Accessibility: This asphalt, dirt, and gravel trail is estimated to typically be at least 8 feet wide. The trailhead gate opening may be very narrow down to 2 feet. The slope is flat and estimated to range from -1% (downhill) to 1% (uphill) grade. There may not be ADA-compliant car parking spots with access aisles at the small and partially paved trailhead lot.

Hiking

Easy, straight and level spring mileage. Just a bike path on a straight line out and back. Worth doing once.

First to Review

Road down 200 West and the paved non-motorized portion of the trail as part of a morning bike ride. Not much to see here, but it is a great place for your morning exercise. Path was in great condition, and there is a fairly even dirt shoulder where several people were jogging as well.
