Bike Trails Connect Provo, Salt Lake, Ogden

A series of biking/jogging/walking trails are being constructed that will make it possible to peddle or foot it from Provo through Salt Lake City and up into Ogden. A portion of trail connecting Salt Lake to Davis County officially opened today. Ultimately, there will be 70 miles of paved interconnecting trail.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this article about the trail segment opening. Below are excerpts.

A recently paved one-mile Salt Lake City stretch of the Jordan River Parkway Trail north of 1800 North near Redwood Road officially opened Thursday, connecting Salt Lake County to Davis County. The route runs into the Legacy Parkway Trail, which, in turn, connects to the Denver & Rio Grande Western Trail to Weber County.

The uninterrupted trail from North Temple in Salt Lake City to Roy is 35 miles long. It will bring long-term benefits to Salt Lake and Davis county communities, said Salt Lake City Councilman Carlton Christensen.

There is one segment of the Jordan River Parkway Trail left to complete in Salt Lake City — a 1/2-mile section from 200 South to North Temple. The stretch is problematic because it crosses four rail lines.
