Dear Fellow Trail Users,
The mission of the Wasatch Trails Alliance is to support and help plan a comprehensive and sustainable trail system in Wasatch County, to provide outdoor recreation opportunities and education for locals and visitors and to meet the growing needs of the biking, hiking and equestrian communities.

This year promises to be enormous with even more new trails and connections. Work on the “WOW” Trail, which will be a flagship trail for the Heber Valley, is continuing. This trail will connect the Bonanza Flats area in Summit County through the outstanding terrain in Pine Canyon to the Dutch Hollow trail system. WTA, in partnership with Wasatch Mountain State Park, Friends of Wasatch Mountain State Park and the Mountain Trails Foundation, has received a Utah State administered federal Recreational Trails Program grant of $100,000 for the construction of the trail. This grant requires matching funds or services of $100,000 so it is imperative that the trail user community steps up to make sure this incredible opportunity comes to fruition.

The other big news is Wasatch County has received a $137,000 Utah Department of Transportation grant to study the feasibility of putting a trail alongside of the historic Heber Valley Railroad from
