FARMINGTON -- Davis County is trying to make life easier for nature lovers when nature calls on the Legacy Parkway trail.
The county has submitted an application to the Utah State Park's Recreational Trails program for a $40,000 grant to help build a restroom along the 14-mile trail.
Davis County Planner Scott Hess said the restroom would be a prefabricated, flush-style vault restroom.
It won't connect to sewer underneath the parkway in order to save costs on the project.
"This is the most cost-effective way to do it," Hess said. "If we connect it to the sewer underneath the parkway, that could drive up the cost four or five times what it is now."
The restroom would be built on the west side of the trail near the 500 South Legacy Parkway exit in Bountiful.
Hess said the county won't find out if it receives the grant until sometime this fall.
The parkway trail starts around Center Street in Woods Cross and extends all the way north of Pages Lane in Farmington.
There are some restroom facilities at parks near the trail, but nothing on the actual trail.
"There's nothing that is truly adjacent to the trail," Hess said. "So we really need this."
