Parley's Trail, currently in development, will connect the Bonneville Shoreline Trail at the mouth of Parley's Canyon to the Jordan River Parkway Trail.
Several segments of trail are now open, and construction is generally proceeding from east to west.
News about The Draw section!
The portion of Parley's Trail that connects Sugar House Park westbound under 1300 East will be done in about one month! There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony in June 2014 for the project.
Trail segmentsThe following trail segments are described from east to west.
- A 0.9-mile paved trail traverses the hilly terrain of Parley's Historic Nature Park and Tanner Park, near the mouth of Parley's Canyon. This segment opened in 2010.
- An interim, on-road route for the trail is signed between Tanner Park and Sugar House Park, using quieter or neighborhood streets where possible. The signs were installed in 2011.
- A section of trail is planned on the south side of Sugar House Park from 1700 East to 1300 East. This section will be designed and constructed when funding is obtained.
- The Draw at Sugar House is the name of the section of trail that connects Sugar House Park to Hidden Hollow Park, by going under 1300 East. This section was completed in June of 2014.
- An existing trail runs through Hidden Hollow Park.
- A large section of the trail west of Hidden Hollow follows the corridor of the Sugar House Streetcar, the S-Line. In May 2012, the Salt Lake City Council funded the Sugar House Greenway to complement the Streetcar construction.
- The remaining sections of trail pass through the City of South Salt Lake and will be completed when funding is obtained.
Salt Lake County is handling project management for the trail, and is working closely with the PRATT (Parley's Rails, Trails & Tunnels) Coalition, Salt Lake City, City of South Salt Lake, Utah Transit Authority, and Utah Department of Transportation to complete the trail.
