The Weber River Trail (Riverdale) is the Riverdale section of the Weber River Parkway. Its southern boundary is the Adams Avenue Trailhead, and it travels north to the Parker Drive Trailhead. It is paved until 1.3 miles south of the Frisbee Park - south of that is a 10 foot wide gravel road. Trail is excellent for biking and walking. With numerous points of river access, it is also a popular place for bird watchers and nature lovers. This section contains many sections of rapids, and the waters can be unsafe for some visitors. The northern part is slow moving and is bordered by wetlands, while the area between South Weber and Riverdale is often used for tubing and other water activities.

Don’t bother riding south of the Riverdale city office unless you want a 1mile quick loop - at the footbridge the trail turns to gravel. Head north and its lovely with a few short inclines; great for beginner cyclists to learn gearing and control. Lots of dogs and pedestrians so take it easy and ride early!

First couple of miles were are dirt then the rest of the trail varied from smooth asphalt with a few sections of older cracked asphalt. Still a fun ride along the Weber river

Good 6.5 turn around. Start at 17th St Trailhead and go to the West Haven Cemetery. Only downside is as a hiker you have to be aware of the many bikes.

Be very careful! You need to be alert and constant lookout for the cyclists that do not slow down and warn you when they are approaching. Great trail otherwise. Can’t wait to cycle it myself.

A scenic, dog-friendly trail. Plenty of opportunity for sunshine as well as shady spots scattered along this easy path. A little busy - sharing the trail with many bikers.

This trail is a great scenic walking/running/biking trail. We do the trail part off of 12th and 1900. But lately it’s turning into a joke because you have to be on guard because of all the cars that are driving the trail. Some of the turns on the trail makes it dangerous cause cars come around them fast and almost hit you or your children or dogs. It makes me really nervous that someone is going to get hit on this trails because these people want to go camp by the river but don’t want to walk in with their stuff. Something needs to happen. Plus all the vehicle traffic is going to damage the trail causing pit holes and etc which can lead to injury of runners and walkers. The entrance of the trail is blocked off by poles with pad locks, that was meant for the service vehicles. It these people are cutting cross fields and entering in areas they shouldn’t be to drive it. If it was meant to be a vehicle road they would have an appropriate entrance for it. Instead of tracking through a field. Sorry rant over. But this is bs. I don’t care if your Boy Scouts or not but something needs to happen before someone gets hurt or killed by a car.

Took the kids and the wife for a bike ride from the Riverdale parking lot southeast towards the Adams trailhead and had a great time. It was a muggy Sunday evening, and we ate a few bugs along the way, especially by the river, but it was a great training ride. My wife hadn't been on a bicycle in over 20 years, so it was a good beginner ride for her....not too long, not too rough and not too hilly. The first 1/2 of the ride was paved, but as soon as you cross over the bridge, it turns to dirt. The trail is well maintained, save a few places where it had washed out, but has since been re-rounted. BE cautions with little ones close to the water, there are some bigger drop offs you'll want to be careful around. There were also a few spots where dog owners hadn't picked up after their animals, which always bugs me, but other than that, very friendly people along the way and a multitude of uses. (Walking, jogging, biking, Frisbee golf, etc.) Most of it was shaded by the time we went and it made a warm evening ride very pleasant. Will do this one again, for sure!

Perfect trail for marathon training & running with my dog. It’s relatively flat too.

good for running while listening to music, and biking. Too loud for walking (cars, trains).

Trail provides great views of the Weber river and is shaded by tall trees most of the way. This is an excellent trail for relaxing walks, runs, or bike rides. There is even a well maintained disc golf course just off the trail.

Started a bike ride in West Haven and stopped at the railroad bridge near 2100S because the trail was under water due to high river flow. This is a stunning ride. Lots of seclusion.

Strated out in Riverdale and walked south on the trail, It was a great walk and the weather was very nice. The trail is paved to start but after you cross the bridge it turns to gravel but is still great to walk on. This is a great trail for walking or for a bike ride go and enjoy.

I looked up the trail for road biking. The TH start is all gravel and dirt for about a mile then it hits pavement. So if you only have a street bike don’t start here. Other than that he trail was a nice. I got on about 0800 and there were some runners and bikers but not enough to bog the trail.

Have been on this trail many times. The south end is quite fun to ride - there is a variety of dirt, sand, and gravel trails and hills. The single track going to Adams Ave is also pretty fun. For the main part of hte trail, it's all asphalt and is very well traveled. Watch out for frisbees.
