Through the generosity of the property owners this area located near the mouth of Parley’s Canyon will be added to Salt Lake County’s Open Space lands. The Eastern foothills is an important winter range area and migration route for wildlife, home to two ephemeral stream corridors, and a well established destination for recreation. The Bonneville Shoreline Trail will be realigned through this property providing access to Parley’s Canyon and the PRATT Trail. Stunning views of the Salt Lake Valley can be seen from this property. In the near future the Parleys Canyon BST open space area will become part of a larger 343 acres of protected open space to further enhance the Parley’s Ride-line Trail.
