Sandy Trax Bike Route

      Average rating:
Rating details         Rate this ride

Description: The bike route following the Trax line in Sandy goes from 114 south to 80 south. Portions are dedicated bike routes and others are roads following the trax line.
Comments: A nice short ride for the family. The sounth end is at the intersection of 114 south and the trax line (south of that is just dirt). The north end is the intersection of 80th south and 100 east. Where the route crosses roads there aren't great crosswalks or anything. Be careful. There's a speed limit of 15 mph on the route. Watch out for pedestrians. The measured elevation gain is from the south end to the north end.
Distance: 4.40 miles (one way)

This is a great route for the family. It's pretty slow paced, and you'll probably end up getting off the bike to cross some of the busier roads.

Nice little lunch-time ride. The paved trail now extends along the rail-road track to 123rd S., a.k.a. the Draper Parkway. With a little creativity, you can proceed into the Draper Park to find a rest-room and drinking fountain. The major street crossings aren't very bike-friendly, and most say 'no pedestrians, cross somewhere else'. I can't imagine actually doing so. This generally feels like Sandy's first attempt at an urban trail -- I give them full points for trying.

I like this ride. It is very quiet. We only saw a few walking pedestrians and no bikers the whole way. The crossings are bad though. You do have to get off your bike and walk around gates. This probably keeps serious bikers away...which is why is is so quiet. Plus most places have no crosswalks. We crossed anyway, but this could be a problem for people with young children. So overall, a good ride for us slow middle aged folks.
