Length: 2.4 mi • Est. 1 h 20 m
A moderate hike to a beautiful waterfall, also known as Lollipop Falls. From the Bridal Veil Park parking lot (the westernmost one, near Nunn's Park, not the one near the Falls), take the upper paved trail for 0.1 mile. There is now a sign for the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. This section of the BST is more hilly and rougher than many others, but is not a large climb. After about a mile, there will be a BST trail sign, and an ATV track will cross the trail. Follow this up for a quarter mile (yes, it is steep) to a great viewpoint of the Canyon and the Falls. From here a trail goes up to the falls, and continues west to more viewpoints. Where does the water go? Into the Smith "Ditch" (pipeline) that irrigates the farms and cemetery in north Provo. The other two "Bridesmaids" are to the east, but the trails to reach them are sketchy at best.Show more

Length: 18.2 mi • Est. 7 h 32 m
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.Show more

Early spring hike. Good trail conditions at lower elevations. Some snow at higher elevations, and full snow cover for the last half mile. Good worn trail easy to follow except between BST and the altar. Suggest following GPS on that section or it's easy to end up back down on BST.Show more
