The trail, which opened in May 2013, is built over the now-enclosed canal. The beautiful 17-mile paved trail connects seven communities in the Utah Valley and has an adjacent dirt path for equestrian use. The trail is marked every quarter-mile and has established trailheads with restroom facilities and running water about every three miles. Near 5300 W. (State Route 74) in Highland, there is a short gap in the trail that can be bridged via the bike lanes or sidewalk on that road, along with low-traffic West Park Rd. (10130 N.) and paved trails in Highland Glen Park. The Murdock Canal Trail resumes just south of the park and continues without any interruptions to Orem.
