The Parley's Canyon Trail Feasability Study is in the public comment phase. The Study examines potential routes and costs for a trail from the Mountain Dell exit on I-80 to the summit of Parley's Canyon. Once the study is released in final form, funding can be pursued.
The trail would connect Salt Lake and Summit Counties, and would give cyclists an alternative to riding on I-80.
The trail is the brainchild of Gordon Stam, and is part of the envisioned Wasatch Loop Trail, a 200+ mile figure 8 trail that would connect Ogden with Provo, Heber, Park City, and Salt Lake City.
The public is invited to comment on the study here: www.recreation.slco.org/planning/html/Parleys_Canyon.html
