A family friendly gravel path running along the Logan River

The River Trail is like the Bonneville Shoreline Trail in terms of its simplicity. The trail is very easy and consists of a basic gravel path that runs along the Logan River and Dams. This is a great family friendly ride that is consistently flat, and relatively short.

The simplest way to access the trail is to park at First Dam, and ride the shoulder of the road for a minute. On the right you'll see a dirt road blocked by a gate with the sign Stokes Nature Trail. Slide past the gate and cruise along the trail. The other way to do this and to avoid the highway is to park at the first parking lot on your left after First Dam. From that parking lot there is a bridge that crosses the river (north) to a building on the other side. Turn right (east) and head up the canyon on the dirt road. After a little bit there will be a path that takes off on your right and goes underneath the highway. Go underneath and cross the bridge that leads to the trail.

The trail is popular in town attracting many walkers, hikers, and bikers. Be careful, and watch for other people. The trail ends by turning into an intermediate singletrack climbing up a hill. Many use this as a turn around point, or you can keep going the rest of the way. Continuing on this section will lead to a little more rugged terrain, but not too entirely difficult.

There will be some incline and rocks that make for a little more interesting terrain. Take a left at the fork with the sign pointing Bridger Lookout to the right. Turning right will lead you to Spring Hollow, a much more difficult ride. Left will continue down to the river. The trail will end up on a dirt road that leads to the Spring Hollow Campground. You can keep going to the campground, or turn around here for the descent. The singletrack section is fairly easy, with few obstacles. Once you get to the gravel path again, keep an eye out for hikers, and other traffic as there will be a lot. Keep your speed under control, and enjoy the smooth ride back to the bottom.
