*Heritage Park is currently undergoing some exciting improvements! A new pavilion, enlarged parking lot, and updated restrooms have already been installed. We are anticipating the installation of a new play structure, tot playground, amphitheater/shell, and landscape improvements in 2023. Due to this construction, as well as work being performed on the well house located in Heritage Park, we will not be able to accommodate reservations for the 2023 season. We recognize the impact that the park closure will have but look forward to enjoying Heritage Park when the work has been completed.

Cedar Hills Park Master Plan
Forest Creek Trail
The completion of the Forest Creek Trail, as well as a significant connection to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, was commemorated at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 25, 2004. We encourage bikers, joggers, and walkers to utilize the trails for invigorating exercise and breath-taking views of the surrounding area.
The Forest Creek Trail runs from the existing trail in Heritage Park, north to Redwood Drive, then east to Cottonwood Drive, and north again to the Highland City Trail, which runs by the Cedar Hills Golf Club. The new portion of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail connects near the mouth of American Fork Canyon at the Highland City Trail, travels south along Canyon Road, crosses under Canyon Road through an oversized tunnel and then continues just south of the LDS church located at Bayhill Drive and Canyon Road.

Utah Valley Trail Systems
Many Utah Valley communities have constructed and are continuing to expand a system of non-motorized trails and pathways. These trails provide recreational opportunities and alternatives to automobile travel, preserve open space, and maintain access to public lands. Many trails are paved, multi-use paths suitable for walkers, joggers, roller-bladers and bicyclists. Others, like the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, are unpaved and more primitive, perfectly suited to mountain bikers, hikers and horses. All of these trails are open to the public and may be enjoyed year round.
*Be aware of rattlesnakes while using the trails in the spring and summer months
Rattlesnakes are fully protected by Utah law; it’s ILLEGAL to harass or kill one. Rattlesnakes are an important part of Utah’s ecosystem, and they help keep the rodent population in check, which helps keep the diseases rodents carry in check too.
Most people who are bitten by rattlesnakes are bit while harassing a snake, toying with a snake, or trying to kill it. Like most animals, rattlesnakes fear humans and will do anything they can to avoid us. Respecting the snake, and giving it plenty of space, are the keys to avoiding problems.
You can get rattlesnake safety tips and tips to keep them out of your yard at the Wild Aware Utah website. Southwest Partners also provides rattlesnake safety information. A copy of the organization’s free “Living with Venomous Reptiles” brochure is available online.
