Jordan River Trail Bridge

Jordan River Parkway Trail 

The Jordan River Parkway Trail is a 40+ mile continuous, non-motorized, paved trail from the Jordan River’s headwaters at Utah Lake in Utah County north to a connection with the Legacy Trail in Davis County near the Great Salt Lake. Approximately 8.5 miles of the trail are in Salt Lake City.  Other parts of the trail have been developed and are maintained by Salt Lake County.  In total, the Jordan River Parkway Trail is the central piece of a network of trails known as the “Golden Spoke,” spanning over 100 miles between Ogden and Provo.  Trail map.

Liberty Park Trail

Liberty Park Trail

Built in 1882, Liberty Park is a favorite within Salt Lake City. Each year thousands enjoy the park’s numerous activities and accommodations. Ringing the park is a 1.5-mile, paved multi-use trail, and a parallel wood chip jogging path.  To prevent user conflicts, travel on the path is counter-clockwise around the park. Bicycle/pedestrian crossing signals at both ends of the park connect to the 600 East Neighborhood Byway.  

City Creek Canyon / Memory Grove

City Creek Canyon / Memory Grove

City Creek Canyon is a wonderful resource so close to downtown Salt Lake, and a great respite from the summer heat. A 1.2 mile shared-use path through Memory Grove Park begins at State Street and Second Avenue, and extends north to Bonneville Boulevard. North of Bonneville Boulevard, the “path” in City Creek Canyon is a 5.8-mile paved canyon maintenance road that is closed to public automobiles on days that bikes are permitted (and vice versa).

    • Summer: Bicycles permitted on odd numbered days ONLY from Memorial Day weekend until Sept. 30.  No bikes on Memorial Day or Labor Day regardless of date. 
    • Winter: Bicycles permitted every day from Oct. 1 to Friday before Labor Day, except during the deer rifle hunt.  
    • Service vehicles are allowed on all days and should always be expected when bicycling in the canyon.  Speed limit of 15 mph also applies to bikes. SLC Public Utilities manages the canyon.
