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.

The Latest!

Our newest release is Episode 26, a segment in North Ogden that I believe is one of the top 5 most beautiful stretches in any of the BST. Our latest hike was in southeastern Cache County along the “Deer Fence,” to celebrate New Years Eve (eve). And check out our latest “backtrack episodes,” where I’m on my own exploring some new sections of the BST in areas we have already passed–my most recent hike was January 3 in Bountiful (waiting for mud season to end to wrap up the last couple hikes).

New Annual Report!

We’re a bit late, but the 2023 BST Annual Status Report is out. It’s been a banner year for BST construction, with almost 23 miles of new trail, more than any other year in its history. See where the new places to explore are, and join us in moving it forward further. Along with the report, we have a new edition of our award-winning BST Status Wall Map, which you can purchase (for print or digital) at Zazzle.
