Follow This Abandoned Railroad Trail For One Of The Most Unique Hikes In Utah
All across the country, hikers and cyclists enjoy exploring rail trails. These are trails that have been converted from railroad tracks to paved or groomed trails, and follow an abandoned railway through the countryside. Utah has a rail trail, and you’re going to want to explore it!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Check out a map of the trail here, and learn more about it on the Utah State Parks website. Have you hiked or biked the Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail? We’d love to hear about it in the comments!
