Proposed Trails

Sunnyside Trail - This proposed multi-use trail on Sunnyside Ave between Foothill Drive and approximately 1300 East, is a small section of the larger Transvalley Corridor mentioned in the 1992 Salt Lake City Open Space Plan. The concrete trail will vary in width from about 8 feet to 12 feet and will replace or sometimes expand the existing sidewalk. A small section of the trail was completed in 2013 with the construction of the new Roland Hall-St Mark’s School soccer fields at about 1465 E Sunnyside Ave. Conceptual design drawings showing the approximate location of the trail were recently completed. Trail construction is scheduled to begin this summer (2016). For questions or comments about this project please contact Stephanie Toombs (SLC Engineering) at 801-535-6374 or Dan Bergenthal (SLC Transportation) at 801-535-7106.

Surplus Canal Trail - This 2.6 mile proposed trail will follow the east side Surplus Canal maintenance road between 2100 south and 500 South. This trail is in early planning stages with no construction timeframe.

Jordan and Salt Lake City Canal Trail - This trail is proposed within or along the Jordan & Salt Lake City Canal corridor in Salt Lake City and passes through the middle of Sugar House. The trail is proposed to extend from Elgin Ave. (3000 South) to 800 South where it would connect with the 800 South bicycle lanes - about 4 miles in length. An implementation study was completed to determine where an off-street trail can be accommodated in the corridor and where the route will need to be on city streets (in the form of bike lanes, shared lanes, sidewalks, etc.).

Folsom Trail - This trail is proposed to extend from the Jordan River near 100 South to State Street at North Temple roughly following the route of City Creek to the Jordan River. The corridor may be a combination of off-street paved trail and bicycle lanes. The initial section of trail being planned extends from the Jordan River Trail to 500 West utilizing the abandoned Union Pacific Folsom Avenue rail corridor.
