We are in the process of building new trails in Hyde Park Canyon with Hyde Park City. The City recently annexed 80 acres into their city that was previously owned by the Bureau of Land Management. It was conveyed to Hyde Park City ownership through the John D. Dingell National Conservation Area Act. The city has bonded to build a 2 million gallon water tank in the canyon. 


Our staff helped the city secure grants through the Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation and RAPZ tax to help purchase materials for trail development in the area. Trails will be in development through the summer/fall of 2021 and will be open to the public in spring 2022. There is a lot of construction taking place in the canyon at this time for the water tower construction, please be respectful of it. 


We will be seeking more volunteers to help us finish digging the first loop trail and will be posting more dig dates soon. Volunteers will help with grubbing, digging, building berms, and putting the finishing touch on the loop trail. This loop trail is the first phase of trail development. Additional phases of trail development will be pursued to construct more miles of trails with varying difficulty.
