Folsom Corridor - Trail Clean-up

  • Folsom Trail 46 S 500 E Salt Lake City, UT, 84101 United States (map)

Join us to clean-up a problem section along the proposed Folsom Trail with Restore North Temple and the Fairpark Community Council!

The Folsom Trail easement (approximately 46 N) adjacent to the train tracks on 600 West is plagued with trash. Please join us for a two hour clean-up of the area. Salt Lake City Police Department and Salt Lake County Health will be on-hand. Together we can make a difference in cleaning up the community, while learning about long-term efforts to uncover the waters of City Creek through the corridor adjacent to a mixed-use trail.

*Note: Due to the presence of potentially dangerous materials, this clean-up is not kid-friendly.

The two-mile Folsom Trail will create a safe, comfortable connection for families and residents on the west-side to employment and services in Downtown Salt Lake City. An underground culvert – containing City Creek overflows from the North Temple culvert – flows through the corridor. Through the daylighting of City Creek adjacent to the trail, the project will improve the environmental and public health of the area by alleviating water quality impairments, improving access to nature, and mitigating flooding concerns.
