Hiking the Bonneville Shoreline Trail in Utah

It’s a pretty long trail.

Over 100 miles long to this date (with plans to make it 150 miles or longer), it’s pretty extensive. It ranges (and hopes to be extended) from Logan to Provo; yeah, it covers some ground! I’ve hiked parts of it here and there, but for the most part, the Salt Lake City area is mostly ridge line trails with views of the Salt Lake valley. It’s pretty neat!

My friend Abby suggested we hit part of the trail recently, so we went up to a trailhead by the Avenues in Salt Lake City. There are numerous trail heads all over the place, so there’s numerous access points – each part renders a different part of the trail, which is pretty neat! I didn’t take a ton of pictures during this short hike – the weather was overcast, and lightly rained on us for a bit. But, I did capture some, here and there – I took a total of 23 pictures…yeah, only 23. Not many, huh!

If you’re out in Utah, Salt Lake area specifically, this is an easy way to see views of Salt Lake City and the rest of the valley. It’s an easy enough hike – just remember to go in the morning! We were there a little past 6AM. Not too many people are on the trail that early, so we got the trail to ourselves for the first few hours. That’s the way to do it, right?

Against the grain.

There will be more adventures on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, but for now, we’re done. There’s 100+ miles, for crying out loud!
