Utahns first envisioned the 250-mile Bonneville Shoreline Trail in the early 1990s. How have we progressed building it since then? Join us as we hike the entire trail to evaluate the State of the BST and learn what we can all do to help it along.

Here you can watch our series of short documentary videos, read our trail report blog, explore the state of the trail in our interactive webmap, contribute your ideas for what we should see and do along the way, and donate to offset our production costs and to actually help build the trail.

Originally we intended to complete the entire trail during 2021, but the production work to finish each episode turned out to require more of Spencer’s time than we planned (about $1,500 per episode), and he needs to focus on paying jobs, so we are going to call this Season 1 and come back in the Spring. Yes, your donations would help make this a higher priority. We have only completed one county of the 6 the trail passes through, but because Utah County is so large and has so much trail, we think we are 1/4 done with the hikeable BST.

Although I am also affiliated with the Bonneville Shoreline Committee, this is an independent project and is not the official page for the BST.
