Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail
The Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park is a 28-mile trail for non-motorized use. The trail begins or ends at Park City and follows Interstate 80 through Wanship and Coalville to Echo Reservoir. Facilities are being developed. Activities include hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, jogging, Nordic skiing and wildlife watching.
The trail surface is primarily gravel, except for a half-mile section that is paved in Wanship. This short section is suitable for wheelchairs and in-line skaters.
