The valley carved by prehistoric Lake Bonneville is now home to Salt Lake City's fast-growing urban corridor. With 75 percent of Utah's population living here, open spaces for locals to escape and connect with the outdoors are vitally important for the overall quality of life.

Since 1991, TPL has been protecting lands in the foothills of the corridor, creating the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. To date, over 100 miles have been protected, giving mountain bikers, runners, hikers, equestrians, cross-country skiers, and families places to stretch their legs, play, and enjoy the outdoors. Our ultimate goal is to complete a 280-mile trail that stretches from northern Utah to the heart of the state.
