One of the best parts of spring is relishing the warm weather. The tots and I do this best at the park, and thankfully Provo Canyon has plenty of parks to appreciate. On this recent biking adventure with the tots, we started out at the playground at Vivian Park. This park boasts a paved bike/hike trail, two playgrounds, two pavilions, restrooms, a fishing areal and a river to throw rocks at, not to mention the Heber Creeper railroad comes to visit every once and a while.
While the tots played on the playground I got my bike and trailer set up. The Provo River Trail, which ends at Vivian Park is great for tots of all ages. It’s a paved trail that runs from Utah Lake to Vivian Park and is popular with bikers, hikers and anyone interested in being outdoors. The section we biked, from Vivian Park to Bridal Veil Falls, was only about twenty minutes, and that was with towing an extra seventy five pounds of tots and bike trailer.
Little g was ready to go as long as we had ‘Monkey Pack’ on her back. She and Big E rode in the trailer along a flat section of the Provo River Trail – Vivian Park to Bridal Veil Falls. The trail meanders along the Provo river, with majestic mountains along one side. Bright greens, wet from a recent rain, grew along the trail and the earthy scent of the outdoors was a refreshing reminder of the season.
At Bridal Veil Falls, Big E was giddy with joy feeding the fish. For a quarter you can purchase a handful of fish pellets and bask in the joy of your youngster’s laughter as he watches the fish fight for each mouthful. Little g loved it too, but mostly because she got out of the bike trailer.
The bike back to Vivian Park was calm and pleasant and overall it was a great outing on a great spring day.
