This route includes a couple short unofficial alternative routes that are less up and down and better for through-travel.

The longest unbroken stretch of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail in Utah Valley, this is a good day hike, a couple hours ride, or a half-marathon run. And great views the whole way.

There is snow the higher up you go. At the transition point from dry to snow, it is going through a freeze thaw cycle, so it is muddy if you don’t ride when it is below freezing.

Trail is firm and for the most part dry. Just a couple of slightly muddy areas.

Spring runoff moving fast right at the mouth of the canyon. If headed southbound, turn left and go up Slate Canyon for ~200 feet for water that is slower moving and possible to bike through slowly without getting soaked.
