    I have been riding the Jorday River Trail for years. Mostly between 7800 South and 2100 South. It is a fabulous asset to the community. But there are problems. There are places on the trail where drug users and transients hang out. Also, several places on the trail are pick up spots for gay males. Many of the users of the trail have no clue about trail etiquette and will walk or ride 3 or 4 abreast, making it impossible to get around them. There needs to be signs at the trail heads explainging proper trail etiquette (STAY TO THE RIGHT! TRAVEL SINGLE FILE!)and a more visible presence by law enforcment personnel to discourage inappropriate and illegal activities.

    I run on the Jordan River Parkway in South Jordan, Riverton, Draper, and Bluffdale. The section in West Jordan is being completed as I speak and should be open by June 30th. The Parkway is a great place to walk, run, cycle, skate, and ride horses. No traffic, no smog, and a rural atmosphere with lots of wildlife and plants.

    My only complaint is that the path under 106th South and 123th South become flooded when the river is high. The Utah DOT installed a pump in the tunnel under 106th South, but that pump hasn't worked for a couple of years. I wish the DOT would change the light at 106th South and River Front Rd to have a pedestrian phase. That light is only a few hundred feet from the Parkway and would give people a way to get around the flooded path. There is a sign on 106th South stating that persons wanting to cross the busy highway should use the Parkway path. If the people go down to the path, they find that it is flooded. The DOT seems reluctant to admit a mistake in not having the light have a pedestrian phase.
