    To begin with; the Bonneville Shoreline Trail is a lot longer than .4 miles - it's more than 100 miles, running most of the Salt Lake valley. The section I rode today started at a trailhead just above the JCC near the University of Utah. I rode west & exited onto City Creek trail through Memory Grove then back home in the city. The B. Shoreline Trail section near the University is very sandy with a few heavy rock gardens as well as lots of sandy-loose gravel rock. The long switchbacks have nice smooth transitions with nice banking corners. Expect to experience a crowded trail on this section during the weekend.

    "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."
