Nicely paved clean walking trail. Great for strollers! Kind of busy in the evenings and the occasional asshole biker

walked/jogged this trail but it’ll be better off in a bike than walking

This is a moderate fun trail with nice views, fun descent and shade areas.. almost as a roll a coaster ride!

My go to running trail when I am in Park City. Beautiful - perfect if wanting a smooth flat running trail. Varied surfaces with asphalt, dirt or wooden bridges. Nice vista’s and cool art sculptures en route. Connects to several trails that are similar and you add on and can get in 13 miles round trip going from Park City to Kimball Junction. Also 3 miles in there is a clean public bathroom at Ranch Road that I always stop at before I continue with run.

Nice bike ride, Redwood Rd to 600 West, but the rest is too much traffic.

Excellent trail for biking!

Love this long stretch of trail for running and biking.

We rode along Echo Reservoir into Coalville on June 9, 2018. Most of this trail was not paved, and turned out to be harder than I expected due to that. Probably if it was paved it would have been easier. The views are really nice. Keep in mind that at least this part of the trail is sparsely shaded, so it gets HOT!

Nice walk walk through a park between houses on a paved path

ok urban walk. The best part was the wetland section in the middle

I like to access this from 2200 West which is just east of the airport by road bike. I hate when the bugs are thick, when wearing sunscreen the bugs stick to your arms. Only a few restrooms.

Biked 05/26/18 from 7:30 AM. Terrific time. I biked almost the entire way from end to end, beginning in Lehi, at a casual pace. It had some great views, particularly once the trail began to press against the mountains. There were lots of fellow travelers but everyone was kind.

Not remote, easy, flat, wide, multi use, well maintained trail. Heavily traveled with friendly folk. Walk to shops and restaurants or connect with trails in Lower Utah Olympic Park for more steps.

This was my first time doing a “real” bike ride. Thanks Kelly for your review, I had the same issue not knowing where to park by the red farm so I parked by Nordstrom Rack by the train station. The trail has an opening on the north side of the walking bridge.
The path is nice and smooth except for slight inclines and a few wood bridges. There are benches to stop at if you need. I turned around about 4 miles down and there is a port-a-potty there if needed. I saw horses on the west side and enjoyed the Mountain View on the east. This is a trail I’ll be visiting often!

Great trail for an easy going walk or when short on time.

This trail has some of the most stunning and amazingly beautiful mountain and lake views ever. Though it's called a canal trail, the canal view seems to be very short and unforgettable as compared to all other views, plus you may start wondering where the canal actually is! We started the trail at the beginning near the Lehi Frontrunner track, and went all the way to the end in Provo. Our stats were quite a bit different than what was was listed here- 19.5 miles, 636 ft elevation difference. There were several hills between the Lehi start and about West 10400 North, I think in Highland. From there it was smooth sailing... so if you want the trail to be relatively flat (minus the bridge underpasses), then start or end around that West 10400 North point. This trail is well groomed, and in some areas is like a divided highway- one side for bikes, the other for walkers. There are several (maybe 4-6) trailheads along the track that have restrooms, tables under a pavilion, water fountains, a bike repair station (at some I saw this, can't remember if i saw them at all), and a big circular decoration (which you can see in pictures I have taken). Also along the trail there are picnic tables with small pavilions along the way with water fountains. It's a really well maintained trail for fun, comfort and spectacular views! You may even be lucky enough to see a few horses, like we did!

This trail is great if you're looking for an easy walk by yourself or with your dogs. Dogs must be on leash on the paved trail. It's a very easy walk and not too long either.

Great running trail for strollers and those with children.

Good wide trail surface, cement. On a bike you have few pedestrians to navigate. There are stop signs to cross 700 east 900 east and State Street. Continue east to Sugarhouse Park and west to the bike bridges thru the Spaghetti bowl to Jordan River. This trail is the easiest way to gain elevation from east to west across the valley. You can race the streetcar on a bike but be careful at cross streets.

I really appreciate rails to trails projects. Riding along the reservoir is cool. I saw some muskrats in the town of Echo. It was rideable on a road bike even on the dirt parts in winter (no snow about a month ago... terrible year for snow)

I wouldn’t call this a trail - more like a sidewalk that is completely paved. It skirts the perimeter of a densely populated residential area and some commercial (shops-restaurants) buildings. A portion of it borders Swaner preserve. Used heavily by Mountain Bikes.

Not remote, easy, flat, wide, multi use, well maintained trail. Heavily traveled with friendly folk. Walk to shops and restaurants or connect with trails in Lower Utah Olympic Park for more steps.

This is a nice paved path for a walk with the kids. Not really a hike but if your looking for a little incline during your run, this would be a good place for it. The trailhead has parking in the neighborhood or a 1/4 mile up is some parking by a playground. The top of the trail doesn’t really have any parking.

Nice smooth asphalt great for walking, running, skating, cycling. Runs past farms, homes, parks, etc. Easy to access at any of the streets it crosses.

It's better on a road bike. Paved, safe, and easy to access.

Great trail. We started on the north end at Farmington Station where you can park for free and its in a mall area, so plenty of people around for 'safe' parking. The directions here take you to the far north end of the trail which is at a farm and we were unsure if we should park there, but the train station is less than 2 miles south of the 'start' of the trail, so it was great. We road about 12 miles round trip (6 south, 6 north). We turned around due to some inclement weather (heavy winds and clouds and thunder/lightening later that day). Trail is well kept and very nice, but it is exposed so bring a hat/sunscreen. Great place to bike, walk, and stroll with the dogs. We went on a Sunday mid-morning, so it traffic was lite. Just got my first Road Bike so I am looking forward to utilizing this trail more.

Great paved trail that meanders through Utah county. We've walked and biked it with our kids in tow.

It is a nice paved walking path for when you want to get away but don't have the time to drive out to the mountains. The path runs along a dry creek. You can see a golf course and many backyards. If you are interested in backyard landscaping on a hill, there are many different examples here. There is not much shade.

From one end to the other then back, it is 2.5 miles. There is no good place to park at either end. The trailhead parking is on Skye Dr, about a half mile east of the west end. You also could park at Tenton Estates Park (which has a nice small shaded playground aimed towards younger kids) which is about a quarter mile west of the east end. Personally next time I probably would park at Skye Park and just walk the small distance south to the west end.

Fun and super easy walk. More fun on a bike. Not much to see but it is a nice walk.

This is a great trail if you start at the trail head by draper park , the section between 12600 s and the draper park is tricky to get to . My advice is to start at the trail head
