Draper’s Mehraban Wetlands Park offers visitors up to a mile of walking opportunities on paved and gravel paths through a natural wetland environment. In addition to lush wetland vegetation, the park also features two large ponds that are popular with fisherman and nature lovers alike. The entire trail is either paved or packed gravel and is suitable for children and adults of all abilities.
Mehraban Wetlands Park is located at 898 E. Riparian Drive in Draper, Utah. To reach the park from I-15:
From the parking area, begin hiking on the paved path heading into the wetlands. The path circles around the south end of the park before arriving at a junction. To the left is a trail that accesses two small ponds while continuing straight leads to the north end of the park on Willow Wood Dr.
Turn left at the junction and continue walking to the first of two ponds in the park. A gravel path follows the perimeter of the first pond. Several park benches and a dock are available. Just beyond the first pond, cross a wooden bridge before arriving at the larger of the two ponds known as Sunset Pond where another dock and park benches offer visitors a place to sit and take in the scenery.
Return the way you came. Total hiking distance is variable depending on the route you choose, but it is easy to walk up to 1 mile by following the various trails throughout the park.
