Legacy Parkway Trail

Easy

Description

The Legacy Parkway Trail provides a useful, efficient commuting route as it is fully paved and has no street crossings. The trail runs adjacent to the Legacy Parkway in southern Davis County. It begins at Farmington Station and parallels the Utah Transit Authority's FrontRunner, the state's first commuter rail line, for some of its journey to North Salt Lake. Although most of the route is along a busy freeway, there is a connection to the Legacy Nature Preserve, which offers more scenic surroundings. In Centerville, the Legacy Trail overlaps the Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail for a short distance, and it meets the nearly 50-mile Jordan River Parkway Trail at its southern end. All three trails are part of the Golden Spoke trail network, which provides 100 miles of connected, paved trails from Ogden to Provo. There are a number of trailheads along the way providing access to the Legacy Parkway Trail, but trail users should note that they do not offer restrooms or drinking fountains. Parking and Trail Access Near the southern end of the trail, parking is available at the Center Street Trailhead in North Salt Lake. Heading north from there, parking and restrooms are available in Legacy Park (1140 W. 1100 N., North Salt Lake), as well as parking and drinking water at Mountain View Park (2113 W. 1250 S.) in Woods Cross. There are other trailheads with parking every few miles as you continue along the trail, but they don't offer restrooms or water. If you're taking public transportation, you can also access the trail via the Farmington Station on the UTA FrontRunner light rail line on the northern end of the trail.
