The Fallen Officer Memorial Trail is organized annually by Herriman City in May around Blackridge Reservoir. Each year they include different officers and K-9 dogs who have died in the line of duty in Utah.
Because of the position of the names and photos, it makes the most sense to go counter-clockwise around Blackridge Reservoir. Some of these officers died in the last couple years and others go back pretty far, even to the 1800s.
K-9 Casualties are also included in the tributes.
You can stay to play at Blackridge Reservoir or hike a nearby trail.
