Default Murdock Trail Report

Starting from Highland Glenn Park Trail head - aprrox. 11 miles of smooth skating southbound thru to Provo Canyon. Very wide trail, with separate adjoining paved pedestrian trail(for some distance), but don't be surprised to find people walking on the bike/skate trail. One small section is currently under repair, should be open thru shortly. Number of well marked road crossings, and a few underpasses, all very easy to navigate. To the north, the trail is not yet connected through, and resumes about 1-2 miles to the south west. In approx 2 more miles you will encounter Mitch Hollow Park, sadly this section was not cleaned prior to the final seal coat, so many rocks and pebbles are engrained into the trails surface. From Mitch Hollow north < 1/4 miles a large ravine heads to the north west direction. This section is pretty much impassable on skates ,with many tight downhill turns, switchbacks. Sorry to say no one thought of skaters in designing this crossings. Following to the north side of of the Ravine, Dry Bridge Crossing, the path continues more/less at level grade, until it terminates 2-3 miles to the west.
