Bonnivile Shore Line Trail

Average Rating:    (2.71 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

This is a good intermediate ride. The trail begins with a couple miles of accent that will eventualy get you too Squaw Peek. From here you can continue up the trail to Rock Canyon on either the west or east side of the mountain. Or you can ride down the face of Squaw Peak. There is no shortage of trails in this area. The Provo River Parkway is accesable from any one of these trails. If you head north you'll eventualy run into University and the Parkway will be on the other side. If you want to shutle there is a paved road to the top of Squaw Peak and a parking lot about two hundred yards down from the trail head.

Trail Directions
This is one of the easiest trail heads to find. It's less than a mile down the Provo River Parkway from Bridavale Falls. There is a sign posted to mark the begining, aparently a boyscout troup cleaned up the trail for a project. The trail runs south up the side of the hill.

Summary:
I used to ride this trail once a week or more when I lived in Provo but I still get the chance every now and then when I go back to see friends. This is a great little training trail during the week and is a real blast for a one hour ride. Best place to start is at the Bridalveil falls parking lot. Hit the paved trail for about 100 yards and look for the well marked trail head sign on your right. The climbing begins quickly and the trail is tight single track. Depending on the time of day you may see a lot of people or no one at all. The trail up is about 2.5 miles and can get interresting. For those who say this trail is bad, I chanllenge you to make it all the way up with out dabbing a foot. Good luck. This is an all around fun ride whether you turn around at the top of the switchbacks to head back down to your car (really fun) or continue on along the fast single/double track to Squaw Peak road where you can continue on to just about anywhere. Everyone in the Utah Valley area should add this trail to their training loops.

Recommended Route:
Only one way to go until you hit the Squaw Peak road, at that point my recommendation is to go straight across the pavement and then ride that track for about 1.5 miles until you see single track brake off down to your right. Once you hit the highway, either ride along that back to your car or find a safe way across to the Provo river trail which will also get you back to your car.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The south fork trail is a great trail just further up Provo Canyon.

Summary:
This trail sucks. If you like the sun beating on you for hours because there are no trees then this one's for you. If you like stepping on Rattlesnakes and eating dirt because the trail hasn't seen a lick of moisture in months, go for it. If I could give this trail a negative number, it would be like a -6.

Recommended Route:
Go to the mountiains instead. They are right there, to the east. See them...there...about 10000' tall. Get it?

Summary:
I've tried to explore every section of the bonneville shoreline trail in Utah Valley, and in doing so have found there to be a couple problems. The main one being that there is no documentation or maps outlining where sections of the trail start or end. Even the trails website doesn't contain any information. From what I've found There's a spur accessible from just above Orem City Cemetary by the water processing facility that heads up into Provo Canyon, hits a park (can't remember which one) you follow the provo river parkway further up the canyon till you hit the spur that starts around bridal veil falls, then follow that trail till it hits squaw peak road, then you ride up squaw peak road until you see a tiny spur start at one of the U curves, follow that down south into a neighborhood, and then stay on the streets close to the mountain until you're in the Indian Hills area. There's an abandoned tennis court up on the mountain side, the trail goes of the street up to the tennis court, and then heads south to Rock Canyon, and then further south where it's apparent on the mountain side. I've had many adventures trying to figure out where the trail starts and ends. One of the funnest is the spur on the timpanogos side of Provo Canyon where it drops down to the park.

I didn't like it it was a very boring ride, no technical difficulty. If you are a beggining mountain biker, then this is your trail.

Summary:
This is a awesome trail. The single track supplies plenty of surprises including 2 hair pin turns, roller coaster like bumps and a couple of lung busting climbs. Look out for people coming down!

Recommended Route:
I like to start at Glen Canyon Park about a mile south of the trial head. This provides a good warm up before the climbing starts. I ride to the point where the trail levels out(skipping the double track) then head back down the way I came.
