Runners flee to the hills, so they can fly along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail—a great joy of living on the Wasatch Front.
There are more than 100 miles of maintained mountain ways to the BST, which run the west side of the Wasatch Range. The trail travels along where the ancient Lake Bonneville once washed against the mountains.
The BST provides unparalleled city access to recreational areas, and the views of the City of Salt and the autumn alpenglow as it falls on the trail are simply phenomenal.
Shared by hikers, mountain bikers, runners, and runners, the BST attracts all types. And everyone has has their preference, whether it’s hiking the steep path to Mt. Wire, bombing down Bobsled on a bike, or ramping up the legs for the run/battle to Grandeur Peak.
