Bonneville Shoreline Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Envision most of western Utah submerged as well, not from a flood, but from a sprawling, ancient inland sea we today call Lake Bonneville. The mountain ranges to your west would be long islands. Today’s Bonneville Shoreline Trail would be along, or under, the beaches and fringes of that vast, prehistoric lake. Nowadays, instead of water, Salt Lake City and its suburbs lap at your feet."

"Riding along a shoreline should be flat and easy, right? Not when you’re pursuing the Ensign Peak section of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST), because getting to the actual bench requires strong legs and ultra-low gears.

Reward for your effort, however, is a staggering view of the entire Salt Lake Valley, from the State Capitol to Point of the Mountain, and of the lofty Wasatch Range and Oquirrh Mountains that enclose the valley. Along with the climbs, there are some fast, smooth sections, too. Trail surface: 6.4 miles on singletrack; 4.8 miles on doubletrack."
