The cornerstone of the entire 250-mile proposed Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST), the Salt Lake City section combines challenging climbs and exciting descents to and from the smooth-rolling “shoreline” of ancient Lake Bonneville. Views of the Salt Lake metro area, as it laps against the lofty Wasatch Range, are postcard perfect. Two tough climbs (up Dry Creek and up from the City Creek Canyon Trailhead) might make the whole route beyond the reach of novices, but multiple trailheads offer countless short courses that cater to everyone. Trail surface: 6.5 miles on singletrack; 3.5 miles on doubletrack.
