[ARCHIVED] New Draper-Lehi Trail Connection

Trail Ribbon-Cutting Square

The cities of Draper and Lehi will celebrate the opening of a new trail at the Salt Lake-Utah county line that connects more than 30 miles of continuous regional trail. Lehi made the new connection possible by expanding its Historic Lehi Rail Trail and officially connecting to Draper’s Point of the Mountain Trail. 

The new connection creates more than 30 miles of continuous trail stretching north along the Porter Rockwell Trail to Sandy’s Historic District, and continuing south along the Murdock Canal Trail, to other regional trail connections, including the Jordan River Parkway and Provo River Parkway. This is the first extensive trail connection on the east side of I-15 for Salt Lake and Utah counties, which provides a new area for residents to cycle or run between the two counties.

This marks an achievement of connecting a major trail route as outlined in both cities’ master plans. To celebrate the project completion, city officials will make remarks at a ribbon-cutting event on Tuesday, July 28 at 5:30 p.m., and a large bronze monument plaque dubbed “the Golden Spoke” will be embedded in the trail to mark the spot of connection.

Residents are invited to help us celebrate at the new trail connection by riding or running to the event at 11642 N. Frontage Rd, Lehi.
