Transportation - Urban Trails
The natural environment of Salt Lake City offers great access to natural areas within a short distance of city amenities. Salt Lake City's Urban Trails provide walking and bicycling routes for people of all ages and abilities to access these open spaces and community destinations.
The City is pursuing near-term planning and construction of the following projects, in accordance with adopted community plans and feedback.
Funding is secured for detailed design work and construction of a safe and comfortable walking and bicycling route from 800 South to Fairmont Park, roughly following the alignment of the Jordan and Salt Lake City Canal. The City is initiated the final design process in Winter 2014/2015 toward construction beginning in summer of 2016. Please see the Jordan and Salt Lake City Canal "McClelland" Trail project page for more information.
Construction of the remaining SLC gap in the Jordan River Parkway Trail between North Temple and 200 South is underway. Please see the Jordan River Parkway Trail page for more information.
Beyond projects currently funded for study or construction in the next 1-3 years, longer term projects include the following urban trail segments, shown in the Multi-Use Paths 20-Year Map from the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan Update.
- Surplus Canal Trail
- Folsom Corridor Trail
- 9-Line neighborhood connectors

This trail will follow a former rail corridor along Folsom Avenue between the Jordan River Parkway Trail and 400 West in Downtown Salt Lake City. Learn more about the project at the project website here.
