The mountains and high desert surrounding Park City, including over 8000 acres of preserved open space, serve as the canvas for nearly 400 miles of non-motorized, recreational trail. During the summer months, mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding reign in popularity. As fall turns to winter along the Wasatch Back and the trail system is blanketed in the greatest snow on earth, fat tires are traded in for Nordic skis and ribbons of corduroy and classic track weave in and out of the valleys enticing Nordic skiers, snowshoers and fat bikers. This seamless, year-round trail system, is made possible through a collaborative effort with Park City Municipal Corp, Snyderville Basin Recreation, Summit County and local resorts and may well be the best in the country today.
With the popularity of backcountry trails, wildlife encounters have increased significantly in recent years. Wildlife viewing is a tremendous added value to the trail experience, but surprise encounters occur frequently and knowing how to react is important. For more information go to www.wildawareutah.org.
