Why We Love It

Running from Utah Lake up into Provo Canyon, the Provo River Parkway Trail is an exciting 30-mile paved trail for hikers, e-bikes, and bicyclists.

About 7.5 miles of the trail are within Provo City Limits, with the rest of the trail maintained by Orem City and Utah County.

There are many access points to the trail, including amenities like restrooms and picnic areas.

Plus, the scenery can’t be beat. You’ll pass wetlands, farmland, and forested areas, with plenty of river and waterfall views.

This 15-mile route is a can’t-miss destination. 

When To Visit

The trail is typically open year-round, but watch for periodic closures for maintenance and improvements.

Which E-Bike Classes Are Allowed?

Class 1 and Class 2 e-bikes are allowed on the trail, but Class 3 e-bikes (those with maximum assisted speed up to 28 mph) are prohibited.

We love urban riding options that make e-bike recreation and commuting a little easier.

While e-bikes are prohibited from all single-track trails in Park City, a number of multi-use paths are e-bike friendly!

The city clarifies that e-bike use is permitted, “on soft-surface trails wider than five feet and all paved multi-use paths within Park City.”

When To Visit

Path hours may vary, so count on visiting during daylight hours when possible.

Which E-Bike Classes Are Allowed?

Why We Love It

This 18-mile paved path lets you choose your own adventure:

Explore the entire path and climb over 1,000 ft in elevation gain on the way up, then descend a whopping 2,080 ft descent on the path down!

Or, choose the common 5-mile stretch connecting Bryce Canyon City with Inspiration Point, with a more modest gain of 746 feet and descent of 266 feet.

Whichever you choose, the path is open to:

  • Pedestrians (including leashed pets)

  • Wheelchairs

  • Cyclists

  • E-bikes

  • Skates and rollerblades

  • Longboards

  • Non-motorized scooters

  • Cross-country skiers

When To Visit

Bryce Canyon National Park is open 24 hours a day year-round.

You can even rent cross-country skis or snowshoes for winter visits!

Admission fees apply: choose a Pass to access other National Parks or pay the park admission fee.

Which E-Bike Classes Are Allowed?

Class 1 and Class 2 e-bikes are permitted. Class 3 e-bikes (those with maximum assisted speed up to 28 mph) are not allowed.

E-bike riders, take note: you must use your pedals while riding an e-bike on Bryce Canyon Shared Use Path — no throttle-only riding, except on roadways.

E-bikes are definitely legal in Utah! The state recognizes the traditional 3-class system of e-bikes and riders face very few restrictions.

All you really need to know is that if helmets are required for bicyclists near you, then you’ll need a helmet when riding your e-bike.

You can hit bicycle-friendly trails in Utah State Parks with your e-bike, too.

Outside of parks, stick to bike lanes, bike paths, and multi-use paths — stay off the sidewalks!

Do I Need a Driver’s License For E-Bikes In Utah?

Overall, the State of Utah doesn’t require insurance, registration, or a license to operate an e-bike.

However, cities are allowed to place their own restrictions. 

For example, the City of Provo requires licenses for all bicycles. 

So, be sure to check your local city government for more information.

Are There E-Bike Incentive Programs In Utah?

Utah has had just 1 known incentive program as of this writing, but we’re sure that more will be on the way!

It’s tough to keep a current list of active e-bike incentive programs because cities, counties, and states open and close them all the time.

When a program reaches its cap, it typically closes until a new program is approved in the area.

Check out our article about e-bike incentives to learn more and find resources for the latest information.
