The Jordan River Trail is a 45-mile, multiple use trail paralleling the Jordan River as it flows north from Utah Lake to the Great Salt Lake through the Salt Lake Valley’s most populated communities.  The trail system includes a paved trail, an equestrian trail, several connecting neighborhood trails, and will ultimately also include a water trail for boaters.


The Jordan River Parkway links together some of our region’s great designations including urban fishing ponds, cultural centers, demonstration gardens, shopping areas, parks and more. Check out these Jordan River Parkway Spotlights to see a list of destinations you can discover along the river.
