Description

The fully paved trail runs the length of Salt Lake valley for 45 miles from the north end of Salt Lake county to the north end of Utah Lake in Saratoga Springs, paralleling the pea soup green Jordan River—Utah's answer to Joyce's snotgreen sea.

The Jordan river is an important wildlife corridor. Despite the surrounding and often monotonous development, the land managers, operating as the Jordan River Commission, did well to complete this trail before it was too late to establish connectivity.

Drawbacks aside, for folks living in the sprawl west of I-15 this is often the closest trail. And it is a winter option. Birders may give it a 1-star boost. And on a clear winter day it affords simultaneous views of the snowcapped Wasatch and Oquirrh mountains, and a wetlands experience at your feet.

One could cycle it from end-to-end though again there are better places for a long ride in Utah.

I only know the several mile stretch around Lehi. Consult the North Segment and South Segment maps (big PDFs), split at 9000 S, for more information. The Jordan River Commission website and the My Jordan River website provide good background information.
