The Historic Utah Southern Rail Trail runs through Lehi, about 20 miles south of Salt Lake City, along a Utah Transit Authority rail corridor. It begins near the Utah County line by a sprawling Cabela's retail complex and travels southeast for about 3 miles, roughly paralleling Interstate 15. The trail is wide and paved, offering plenty of room for both bicycle and pedestrian users. The views are mostly of open countryside, but shaded benches along the way offer comfortable places to rest. At Timpanogos Highway (State Route 92), trail users looking for a longer trek will want to pick up the new Murdock Canal Trail, which extends southeast all the way to Orem.
