Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail

The Mountain Trails Foundation received $3,000 to help extend the Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail in Park City. This popular route provides a safe, paved path for children, families, recreational cyclists, and commuters, and an adjacent compacted-gravel path for trail runners and mountain bikers. It also connects to an extensive system of mountain biking and hiking trails. The grant will serve as leverage on an application for SAFETEA-LU funding to improve 23 additional miles of abandoned railway, extending the multi-use route.
