Location: 670 Victory Rd, Salt Lake City, UT 84103
The Victory Road Trailhead is located north of Victory Road between Warm Springs Park and the Utah State Capitol. This location represents the lowest elevation (4450 ft) and westernmost access to the Foothills Trail System within Salt Lake City. The current footprint consists of approximately 6 unmarked parking stalls on a flat dirt lot and a trailhead kiosk. The Victory Road Trailhead serves as a major access point for the northern and western Foothills trails around Ensign Peak, Meridian Peak, Hell Canyon, and the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.
The Victory Road Trailhead will include:
- paved parking for 10 designated spaces including one designated ADA space
- rope and timber fencing and non-irrigated landscaping
- a welcome plaza with a trailhead information kiosk and a seat wall
- a “Be WILD” care station including dog waste bags, waste receptacles, invasive weed cleaning brush
- 3 bike racks and a bike maintenance station
Note: This location is on a Public Utilities parcel with critical City water infrastructure. The footprint of the new trailhead infrastructure has been shifted to protect underground pipes and provide requisite access for its management.
These documents are under “100% review” as of June 1, 2023, and will be finalized with input from all City departments by the end of the month. Finalized construction documents will be included in bid documents created by the Engineering Division who will select contractors for the trailhead projects in collaboration with the Public Lands Department. Contractors should be selected and contracts completed this summer so that construction should occur at a TBD timeline from August to December 2023.
