Pedal in the City: Biking the Jordan River Parkway Trail

pedalcityIt’s summer and time to do some recreational biking!  As we eagerly anticipate the bridge to be built, connecting the last section of unfinished trail, it is still easy to travel this path for for 50 miles from Utah Lake north to the Great Salt Lake through Davis, Salt Lake and Utah Counties!  On any given day, one can see individuals and families pedaling the Jordan Parkway Trail.  How much do you know about this wonderful asset?

There are resources to help you get started on this journey.  Here are two:

Jordan River Commission provides a digital guide, map and information on the river itself:

Bike SLC provides maps also, but additional information on the master plan, municipalities along the trail, and more:
