See also

"The Rail Trail" weaves it's way through 28 miles from Park City to Echo Reservoir and is one of 1600 rail-trails supported by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. It's a great dog-friendly walk any time of year and is a nice winter get-away from the Salt Lake inversion. Rails-to-Trails is a national nonprofit organization that is building a network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors.

The trail is partially paved and partially dirt. You'll see lots of walkers, runners, bikers and dogs. The trail crosses through wetlands and along the Silver River and also the Weber River.There's ponds for your dog to romp in and hills to run and explore.

To get to the trail head in Park City, take Kearns Boulevard to Bonanza Drive and turn left on Prospector Drive. Parking is on the right hand side of the street near Prospector Square.

Poop bags are available along the trail in many areas. Please always be responsible and pick up after your pooch.
