Mountain Biking Bonneville Shoreline Trail - Northern Salt Lake City
#30 of 694 mountain bike trails in Utah
The Bonneville Shoreline Trail is a series of trails along the slope of the Wasatch Mountains where the old shoreline of Lake Bonneville met the hills. Good aerobic ride. Can be rideable in winter, but tread carefully. Great views of Salt Lake City and beyond! Can be busy. Descending Bobsled trails is the best option to leave the BST.

City Creek trailhead: From North Temple, head north uphill on E Street (around 5th East). At 11th Avenue, turn left and drive until 11th Avenue ends at the edge of City Creek Canyon. Turn right on the one-way (no passing: the left lane is for bikers and pedestrians). Pull over at the small parking area at the bottom of the canyon (GPS N 40Â° 47.388' W 111Â° 52.709'). If you go past the paved City Creek Canyon road, you've gone too far.
Terrace Hills: On 11th Avenue, turn uphill onto Terrace Hills Drive, then immediately turn left into the parking area. From the parking lot, ride 0.65 mile uphill on Terrace Hills to the trailhead, on your right at the dead-end. Climb another 0.3 to reach the BST.
Popperton Park: Go east on 11th to Popperton Park. Pedal east on the paved bike trail until it drops over the shoulder of the foothill into a wide gravel area. This is the Dry Gulch trailhead GPS N 40Â° 46.658' W 111Â° 50.225'. Turn left and begin climbing the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.
Red Butte: On Foothill Blvd, turn towards the mountains on Wakara Way. Just before the entry to Red Butte Gardens, turn right and park anywhere along the road. Find a "feeder trail" that climbs about 100 yards uphill to the BST.
