Tons of fun today!! Trail is clear and empty of people at this time due to the heat and the majority of the trail is covered with shade so it’s pleasant! I saw a turtle today as well which was a rare treat! Also had a close encounter with a baby cow which made my day!! Baby cows must hit puberty early because the little fella had a Deep MOO!

Road bikingGreat!

Not too many people tonight. There was that one weird dude who made me slow way down once and tried to twice but I was too busy speeding by to understand. Finger to him haha!! I saw a cat in the field and baby goats and a cool cow who I made friends with and ducks and dragonflies and lots of dogs!! Also biffed it hard in the long wet tunnel, thankfully my wounds were very minor!! The universe was telling me to slow down in there, peoples lives aren’t worth it!!!

Be Careful the longboarder crowd is extremely entitled and ride and walk on the trail like they own it. They refuse to move out of the way, and then they do they make more difficult then before. Riding up is one thing, coming down just avoid and ride on the highway.

It’s a walking trail not a hiking trail just so people know. It’s very pretty though

Road bikingGreat!

This is really (according to the map) 5 trails in one. There’s the Vivian Park to Bridal Veil section, which is great for biking, walking, or long boarding, and has lots of shade, then there’s the part that goes under the bridge and out to Orem, which is better on a bike, but has some shade. Then there’s the “trail” that goes into Provo. This is just a bike lane along the highway essentially, and gets hard to follow about when it hits University Parkway. No shade, goes around business complexes and car traffic. Then you get into Provo, and you go through some nice parks and under a lot of tunnels. Again, best on a bike, but the paving starts getting a little old and choppy here. Then you cross Geneva Rd, and it starts to get a little better for a walk along the river as you go out toward the lake. Lots of shade at this point, and you can frequently see horses and ducks. Utah lake is at the end, but it’s a park that requires a fee to enter. $4 per person or something. So if you’re walking, park at Vivian Park, Bridal Veil (or anywhere in-between), or in a little parking lot where the trail crosses Geneva. Boarding is good in the Canyon. Anywhere else is biking. I should mention it’s a gradual uphill from the lake all the way up to the canyon.

Very crowded. Walkers, longboards, bikes, strollers, and plenty of dogs off leash. Beautiful pathway, lots of shade trees, river flowing in the canyon was a relaxing sound. Fun trail.

Nice evening walk. River's edge has severe trampling from people accessing water. Horses near trail a nice bonus. Walked 3.xx miles in from the state park and returned around 9:30 p.m. Trail traffic really thinned out!

Airport on one side, marsh and lake on the other side. Planes taking off and landing, while ducks and geese sticking their heads under water. No one on this side of the trail. Expanse of the lake for miles as I walk into the sunset. It is beautiful!

I wouldn’t call it a hike. It’s more of a walking trail. But, it’s an absolute blast.

Awesome to take the kids for a bike ride if you’re up to a moderate uphill 15 miles challenge. Super fun!

Running

Ran from Geneva road to the lake on Saturday, very nice trail, asphalt the entire way. Wish there was better gravel to run on at the edges. Not too crowded. There is an extra extension at end of trail, if you go right the quick left after the end parking lot. extends run about 1 mile each way.

Great longboarding trail. Even a beginner can do all but a couple spots. You can go from Vivian Park to the end of the trail (by Utah Lake) in under two hours.
