Jordan River Parkway Access Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Jordan River, which meanders through the center of the Salt Lake Valley, was the lifeline for many of the valley’s early settlements and farms. Today, a walk along the river- hugging parkway trail allows visitors to discover both the human and natural history of the surrounding wetlands and riparian floodplain.The Jordan River flows fresh from Utah Lake for 60 miles before entering the Great Salt Lake. When completed, the Jordan River Parkway will parallel the river and extend from Utah County on the south to Davis County on the north. Currently, the section of the parkway featured here is the longest continuous completed portion and includes some of the path’s most accessible and enjoyable scenery. The trail snakes its way around the numerous inlets and marshes that dress the banks of the river, making the trail even more circuitous than the river itself."
--Greg Witt and Rob Witt, Best Easy Day Hikes: Salt Lake City (Falcon Guides).
"The Jordan River Parkway stays close to the river, passing along and through a riparian habitat and floodplain. You can easily reach the trail at dozens of points—parks, street crossings, and residential neighborhoods. When completed, the parkway will extend from the Utah County line to the south to the Davis County line to the north. The section featured here is the longest continuous completed portion and features some of the path’s most accessible and enjoyable scenery."
