The Murdock Canal Trail is in my neighborhood and my family and I have traveled it so many times now, it is like a normal road. I actually had no idea they were planning to cover the canal and turn it into a path. Now that it is complete, our family travels it almost daily. The Murdock Canal Trail begins at roughly 1100 E. 800 N., in Orem.
