The Murdock Canal Trail is a paved trail that runs for 17 miles on the east bench of Utah County with views of Mount Timpanogos and the surrounding residential areas. It is great for running, biking, and walking dogs.

At each of the trailheads there is a map and an explanation of how the canal was enclosed, including a section of the large pipe used.

The section that heads from Lehi east paralleling Timpanogos Highway is graded uphill, but large sections of the rest of the trail are fairly even.

Highland Glen Park

The Murdock Canal Trail goes right through Highland Glen Park, so some of the Highland Glen Nature Loop overlaps with the Murdock Canal.
