The trail has plenty of entry points around the city, which means you can make it as easy or as difficult as you want. We recommend starting at the zoo or at the capital and taking in the sweeping views of the city as you ride the entire loop.

This trail connected to the Bonneville Shoreline and heads up at a relatively consistent elevation gain. The trail goes through the forest so you’ll have plenty of shade and some amazing wildlife sightings.
Be sure to note that the trail is closed to bikes on even days, and closed to cars on odd days.
