Salt Lake City, Utah – March 28, 2018 – Salt Lake City is in the midst of planning a new trails network for the foothills, more or less from City Creek Canyon to the Hogle Zoo area. The trails will be mostly mountain bike accessible, some downhill only, and some hiking only. Up to 55 miles of new trails may be built in the coming years.
Information on the Open Houses is below:
Attached is an announcement and open house invitation concerning our Foothills Trail System Plan.
The primary objectives of the SLC Foothills Trail System Plan are: (1) to provide detailed layout, design and management recommendations for a high-quality non-motorized recreational trail system that is safe, enjoyable, accessible, connected, and sustainable; and (2) to provide information to guide strategic implementation of the trail system over a 10-year horizon. The plan includes foothill open space lands on the east side of the city, extending roughly from Emigration Canyon to North Salt Lake.
Plan components available for review and comment include:
- A summary of public and stakeholder feedback to-date
- Alignment, design and management recommendations for existing and proposed trails
- Trailhead improvement recommendations
- Wayfinding signage recommendations
- Implementation priorities
Following the Open Houses, public feedback will be incorporated into a final version of the Foothills Trail System Plan, which will be forwarded to key agencies for review and approval. A complete chronology is available at www.slcgov.com/TrailsPlan
We hope to see you on one of the two scheduled Open Houses!
