Ran here a couple of times. One time right after a snowstorm, that was beautiful. It is pretty crowded, I wouldn't bike here but it's okay for running/walking.

Great for a casual stroll, but I do not recommend it for bikes at all. It is often crowded, and if it isn't crowded, the trail is bulging from tree roots underneath and is often littered with sticks, making it very difficult and uncomfortable to ride on a road bike. It was very difficult for me to enjoy the ride for most of the trail. The section in the canyon and along University are decent, but once you leave those areas, it gets bumpy and full of debris. It is much more peaceful to ride along neighborhood streets, or even along University Avenue in the bike lanes.

Beautiful! Maybe we just end up there on the wrong days but always seems so crowded.

We did not walk or bike any of the trails. We floated down the river on tubs. It was a lot of fun. Planing on going back to hike some of the trails real soon :)

Sections this trail are clear for bikers, but really it's too crowded and people don't observe the different lane uses. If biking up the canyon it's better to just take the road.

Ran this today, 9/18/15. From Vivian Park to the end of the trail at Utah Lake was 16.25 miles. The toughest part and least enjoyable was running along University Ave. The rest is tree covered for the most part so it stays cool. Started up above at on South Fork Road at Trefoil Ranch and then at the end I ran back to my car near the airport. Total run was 22.5 miles.

Love this trail! Often bike on it. They have water fountains along the way, beautiful bridges and canyon views. Also love that it connects to the Murdock Trail. Only down side is the amount of people on the trail.

This is a long boarding, walking, jogging, running, rollerblading, biking trail that is paved. Basically a "sidewalk"along the mountains for a beautiful workout. You can start at the bottom of Provo canyon.

I have spent lots of time biking, walking, running, and skateboarding all along this path. Really great path for getting outside.
