FARMINGTON -- The final segment of the Denver and Rio Grande Western Trail has been completed and is set to open Saturday, Oct. 12, in Farmington.
Trail users can now enjoy an uninterrupted trek along the 25-mile paved trail crossing seven Davis County cities, going from 400 North in West Bountiful to Hinckley Drive in the Roy/West Haven area along the old D&RG railroad corridor.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, east of the parking lot of the Legacy Events Center, 151 S. 1100 West.
This last section of the trail was not anticipated to be paved until 2018, according to the Regional Transportation Plan, Farmington City Manager Dave Millheim said.
The trail is an example of agencies working together to better serve the public, he said.
Trails are a big part of Farmington and the county, adding to the quality of life here, Farmington Mayor Scott Harbertson said.
The trail along the Great Salt Lake shore lands provides a nearby world-class recreational opportunity, Centerville Mayor Ronald Russell said.
