Directions: It is best accessed by taking the Provo West Center Street exit off I-15, traveling west a couple of miles towards the state park; after crossing the Provo River, and before entering the gates to the park, turn right and travel north to the T junction (about 1 block) and then turn west (left) [into the parking lot].  [The trail goes north from the west end of this narrow parking lot]. ~ Merrill Webb

Description: The trail starts just north of the Utah Lake State Park headquarters and is about 1 1/4 miles long. There are a few parking places before the trail head which is all black-topped to the end.  It goes straight north bordered by Utah. Lake on the west and a lot of wet fields [in March] on the right (Provo side) or east side.  It is a nice trail, especially in the mornings. ~ Merrill Webb
