The app did not recognize my recording matching this trail, so I have manually uploaded it here. We entered the trail at 200W in Salt Lake City and went to the northern end where it connects to the Legacy Parkway trail. There are parts of this trail that are hard to follow, and there are some parts that are under construction. Overall, it's a nice trail, though.

Great for beginners. I felt like the only person around, although it is a trail that is often frequented. The trees are just beginning to change with the season, beautiful view of fields and of the lake. Paved path. Lovely.

This trail connects to Legacy parkway in North Salt Lake so its nice if you want to go even further into Davis County. I rode about 34 miles of this path and it was beautiful. Not a lot of traffic either which was surprising because it was a Saturday. Very shaded on some stretches which was nice because it was a hot day.

This is a trail that does not feel like hiking. It is paved pretty much the whole way and generally really flat. You can do different sections. There are entrances and exits to the trail every mile or so. At times you feel secluded and then around the bend you are walking next to an office complex for the next 15 minutes. It is used by horses, bikers, rollerbladers, joggers, etc. So be prepared to be around people.

We got on the Parkway at 7000 south and went north until we hit the Murray City sign. It's not a long segment but it's one of the most beautiful. There were no signs of human habitation--no smells, no trash, etc. The trail was clean except for some wild goose poop. No dog poop. Everyone was using the receptacles. There were people running and biking but not too many because we were there when most people were in church. We saw the usual birds including some Canada Geese. Beautiful views of the mountains and the river.

Trail is great for exercise at all levels! For more difficulty, increase the distance or do the whole thing, plus some connecting trails to the North. Also, the early morning after the 4th of July gives you a fairly empty path most of the way! ...did encounter 1 person that didn't know how to control her dog. But over a 74 mile ride that morning, that's pretty good odds!

We have been on this trail several times, mostly biking, in the Saratoga Springs/ Lehi areas. The scenery is beautiful. There are some marshy areas and a lot of birds and some other wildlife. The trail is paved and it is a fun walking/ biking spot.

easy for running since it's flat and paved. doesn't feel like you're in the city. but, it is fairly boring and the section between west Jordan and sandy has almost no shade and some areas smell like sewage. heavily trafficked even at midday in summer. I would try a different section but wouldn't run that section again.

Enjoyed the walk. Different areas have very different feels.

A little stinky in spots but mostly a flat, scenic place to run. I saw an otter by the river.

It was a nice trail to road bike on. There were some scenic views of the river and mountains along the way, which was really nice!

I love this trail! It's a nice safe way to get around Utah. It's full of gorgeous scenery. I've been on quite a bit of it, from Woods cross to Bluffdale I wish they'd fix a few rough patches on it. Especially when you get near downtown where it cuts off. But other than that. It's a nice smooth trail for running walking and biking

Much love for this biking trail! Been all along it many times and it never gets old. It always delights me and is a great natural oasis that weaves through cityscapes and beyond.

I try to ride a section of this trail on my bike every weekend if the weather and my schedule agree. I have gone from 90th South to Saratoga Springs and back and from 90th to 2nd South downtown and back and I would have gone farther but I ended up in some strange homeless shanty town. This trail is near my house and gives me a chance to feel like I'm getting out of the city when I'm really right in the center. The river is damaged and needs our help to be healthy again. My family and I walk, skate, bike and hang out in the parks all along this trail. An underrated asset in the middle of Salt Lake.

Did this a couple years ago for an urban hike. Nice, safe walk that is paved. We did 10 miles.

Loved it. Too hot today for walking, so we took our bikes. Lovely breeze. Not too congested.

This is a great all around trail for walking, running, or biking. I've also spent some time on the river in a kayak in the northern section of the trail by the Utah State Fairgrounds. The fun thing about this trail is all of the interesting things there are to see along the trail.

Put in about 50 miles on it biking one day and it was a great little trail. No complaints besides how crowded it got but it was on a weekend.
