Transcontinental Railroad Back Country Byway

Transcontinental Railroad Back Country Byway Professional Review and Guide

"A remote, 90-mile-long Type II byway that follows the railbed of the old Transcontinental Railroad across a desolate landscape north of the Great Salt Lake. The Transcontinental Railroad Back Country Byway follows the abandoned railroad grade of the original 1869 Transcontinental Railroad for 90 miles across a desolate landscape north of the Great Salt Lake. The Type II byway, passable to high-clearance vehicles, traverses a desolate landscape that is savage in its remoteness but breathtakingly beautiful with its sheer austerity. Wide, windswept saltbush flats reach down to the distant salt lake.

Special Attractions: Transcontinental Railroad bed, railroad sidings, culverts, trestles, ghost towns, wildlife. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
