Jordan River Parkway Trail System Map

The Jordan River Parkway includes an extensive trail system that follows the Jordan River from Utah Lake up to the Great Salt Lake – through the heart of Salt Lake Valley. It has become a popular place to walk, jog, bike, skate and engage in other recreational activities.

The trails have been completed in stages, partly because they extends through a number of municipalities and even parts of 2 counties. The result has been a sort of hodge-podge. Now that the system is virtually complete, work is underway to unify the system

One important step has been the creation of a comprehensive map. That is now finished. There is now an excellent map – an electronic version can be downloaded here or printed copies can be picked up at various places around town.

The Salt Lake County Parks website has this info about the new map:

A complete map of the Jordan River Parkway Trail system has been designed and printed with the assistance of the National Park Service Rivers and Trails Conservation Assistance (RTCA) Program and the Jordan River Commission.

The new map highlights trailheads, public transit areas, urban parks, and conservation areas. Hard copies are available... or simply download your electronic version...
