Mountain Trails Foundation has been helping to advocate for non-motorized trails and the healthy lifestyle they promote for 20 years now. With nearly 400 miles of trail currently online, it’s going to be amazing to see where we can go in the future! New trail development and the time, effort and materials it takes to build and maintain them come from the support of people like you! We work with many local governmental and private groups in helping to expand and maintain this phenomenal trail system that was recently awarded IMBA Gold Ride Center Status (the only current gold level area in the country).
WHAT DOES MOUNTAIN TRAILS DO?
We are a non-profit organization that is Park City’s trail advocate group, dedicated to supporting and promoting local trails now and into the future for non-motorized recreational use. MTF is currently responsible for the maintenance and development of a portion of the local trails system (Round Valley and the Rail Trail as an example), both during summer and winter. We work closely with two major trail developers in the basin; Synderville Basin Special Rec District (aka, Basin Rec), and Park City Municipal (aka The City). These organizations, along with open space advocates that we work with, are instrumental in helping to create a year round seamless trail system, and because of it, we have one of the best trails networks in the country! The long-term goal of the Mountain Trails Foundation is to provide the greater Park City community and its visitors with diverse recreational opportunities, and continue to foster strong relationships with the local organizations and open space groups which can help make it all happen.
We produce a variety of community events throughout the year including:
- Jupiter Peak Steeplechase – August 3, 2013
- Park City Marathon (Full & Half) – August 17, 2013
- Mid Mountain Marathon – September 7, 2013
- Tour des Suds – September 15, 2013
- Triple Trail Challenge - (3-Event stage race over a five-week period)
All events showcase Park City’s unique and diverse trail system (summer & winter) spread throughout the community and among three world class resorts (Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort and the Canyon’s Resort). All funds raised through the events series help to continue the Foundation’s mission.
