We are excited to explore the edge of the Wasatch Front. Yeah, we have traveled the length of the Front for decades, but since we live in southern Utah County, we will be less familiar with the Trail, its hidden gems, and its builders the further North we travel. We would love your input, so feel free to comment here: What should we see? What should we avoid? What topics should we discuss? Who should we have as guests?

Thanks for your help!

  1. We love what you’re doing. Thanks for making the episodes and putting up signage. We live near Laurie Weisler in Springville and recently watched episode 4. In the film you mention the trail emptying onto the Stonebury Loop cul-de-sac and going through the neighborhood after leaving the wildlife area. Actually, if you look closely at the Utah County parcel map, it shows the trail going south of the homes on Stonebury Loop. There’s kind of a hidden alley back there between property owners’ back fences. My family has been using that section of the trail occasionally but it is becoming overgrown. If you could let people know the BST runs through there, the increased traffic will help keep the trail open and accessible. Thanks so much for all your efforts!

    1. Thanks for the info Lesa! You’re talking about where it follows the old ditch? I thought the east end of that has been blocked by someone’s yard.

  2. I live in South Willard and hike the BST regularly. I have been on the trail from Beus to Brigham City. When you get into the Pleasant View to Brigham area I’d love to hike along with you and share what I know about the trail.

  3. I just wanted to suggest that you make sure to check out the section from Pleasant View to Willard. It’s a really cool section that has a very different feel than the rest of the shoreline. To get to it you actually hop off of the power line trail at the bottom of Jessie Creek Dr, and go up that road until right where it curves, where you hop back onto the trail at the south end of some private property where the owners have rerouted for it to initially hug their fence line rather than cutting through the middle of there property. A little past Cook Canyon, the gravel pit has extended up over the original trail and they’ve posted “no trespassing” signs, so you either have to drop down to the canal trail where you started your Willard hike, or take the trail that goes up a little higher and into Willard Canyon.

    Also, if you want to split it up, there is a trailhead with only street parking at the end of 7425 S in South Willard.

    1. Hey Josh, we filmed that section a few weeks ago (Episode 29). Finding a legal way through Pole Patch is still confusing (there are no trespassing signs at the bottom of Jessie Creek Drive), but we found a way. It is a beautiful trail, even though several stream crossings were washed out pretty bad by the spring and summer storms. It will be a challenge to make it official though, due to the several different property owners it passes through.
