Hike and Mountain Bike

Bonneville Shoreline Trail is a great place for hiking, biking, and trail running. It stretches from North Salt Lake to Parley's Canyon. The trail follows the shoreline of ancient Lake Bonneville. 

There are multiple trailheads to choose from. The City Creek trailhead (which is at the bottom of City Creek Canyon) can take you to North Salt Lake. Distance is about 5 miles.

You can also take the City Creek trailhead and follow the trail for about 7 miles into the foothills. It crosses paths with the Bobsled trail which is a very steep slope that will take you right into the city.

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.

Be courteous, informed, and prepared. Read trailhead guidelines, stay on the trail, and don’t feed the wildlife.
