(North section, Provo/Jordan River Parkway)
This broad gravel path is part of the Provo River Parkway - Jordan River Parkway system. It runs the hillside above the northern shore of Deer Creek Reservoir. Length is 7.5 miles, with about 400 feet of total climbing. While mostly straight, there are occasional sharp turns during descents into small canyons.
From US-40, turn north on U-113. Zero your odometer. Drive 2 miles, then turn left immediately after crossing the railroad tracks. Turn left at the stop sign 1/2 mile later. As the road curves to the right about 0.2 miles later, spot a horse hitch area on your left then a railroad stop with parking. Immediately after, there's a road on the left with a small sign indicating it's the Provo/Jordan River Parkway Deer Creek Northern Trailhead. After turning left into the road, keep straight, to the left of the horse corral, and park at the end. The trailhead is the small metal gate at the right.
