Summer Trails Overview
400 MILES OF SINGLETRACK
Park City trails are open to hiking/trail-running, mountain biking and equestrian trail users. Ranging in altitude from 6,500’ to nearly 10,000’, the trail system spans the whole environmental scale. In a single excursion, trail users can experience everything from high-desert covered in sagebrush, mountain mahogany and rabbit brush to the archetypal high-altitude alpine environment.
Park City has been recognized by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) as the first Gold Level Ride Center in the world and continues to share that status with five other destinations. Both the Mid Mountain trail and the 26-mile, Park City Epic- Armstrong & Pinecone combined with the Wasatch Crest & Mid Mtn, are recognized as IMBA Epic rides.
June – November
The season for alpine trails typically begins in June and runs through early November. Snowpack and rate of spring melt significantly impact the accessibility of trails above 7,000’. Trail crews must wait until trails are dry before they can begin clearing winter blow-downs and making necessary, post-winter repairs. Trails in the lower-lying areas of Park City, such as Round Valley and Glenwild dry out and can be accessible up to six weeks earlier than on-mountain trails.
Utah is known for dynamic and severe weather, especially on the Wasatch Back. During summer months, temperatures can vary as much as 40 degrees in a single day. Summer storms, though typically brief, often cause sudden downpours of heavy rain/hail with temperatures plummeting 25+ degrees and are usually accompanied by lightning. Keep an eye on the sky. If thunderheads begin to develop it is wise to get off the mountain quickly.

Hi there, I’m Rick (and team) with your weekly update
Follow our social media pages for the latest news and trail updates or check here each week.
Happy Friday PC! Your short and semi-sweet trail report for the weekend of August 12th-14th...
The weather is the big news this weekend, as the monsoons are active and we're looking at a solid chance of rain and thunderstorms as far as the eye can see. So, while you'll have to be prepared for inclimate weather if hitting the trails, the moisture should set us up with some heroic dirt in the coming days/weeks and we'll take it!
Wildfire mitigation work continues up at Treasure Hill, so please respect all closures and avoid this area from 8am-4pm, Fri/Sat.
The MTF crew continued plugging away at the machine and hand, finish-work on lower Mother Urban as well as Clark Ranch.
Our friends at Singletrack Trails are pushing through some extremely challenging terrain at SkyRidge Mountain Community and should have the new, downhill and bike-only, Big Dipper trail completed by month's end.
Keep and eye to the sky and have a great one out there! #trailreport

Heroic dirt. Love it.
Happy Friday connoiseurs of art and dirt! Your weekend trail update for this Arts Festival weekend, August 5th-7th...
The weather- There is a significant chance of rain, both today, and Saturday, so be prepared if hitting the high ground. This has to be one of the wettest summers I can recall, in many moons.
**Trail Impact Alert**
Monday-Saturday, 7am-4pm through September 1st, Park City Municipal will be conducting wildfire mitigation on the Treasure Hill Open Space.
> For today and tomorrow the South Sweeny's trails will be closed. For your safety, PLEASE respect all closures as the contractor will be felling trees in the area.
> Speedbag remains closed while Rocky Mtn Power replaces power poles in the area.
A big shout out to the fine folks from JP Morgan, who joined the crew on Tuesday afternoon for some finish work on Mother Urban.
The MTF crew killed it once again this week...haircuts were given to the old-school classic, Eagle trail, as well as Empire Link in it's entirety, greatly improving the lines of sight on both trails.
Machine work continues on Mother Urban, Clark Ranch and the new Big Dipper downhill at Skyridge. There will be many miles of new trail to explore when these projects are completed later this fall.
Join our friends at Basin Recreation for the Downhill 'N Grill, from 5-8pm at the Trailside Bike Park. Always a great time.
Lastly, best of luck to our very own, Philip Blevins, who will race in the Pierre's Hole 50K mtb race this weekend. Go get 'em Phil!
Have a killer weekend out there and enjoy the Fest! #trailreport

Great work! Thank you!
Taking rocks out??? We don’t need another corner canyon… keep PC more natural.
Thanks! Does the Sweenys closure include Sweenys switchback to flat cable?
Rick Fournier thank you so much!
Happy Friday PC! Your weekend trail update for this, the last weekend of July... whaaaaat??? August, here we come!
We had a glorious, early evening thunder shower yesterday, that should help to knock down the dust a bit. Temps will be in the mid to upper 80's this weekend with a chance of thunderstorms each day. Be sure to pack that Gortex, just in case...
The MTF crew crushed it this week, despite the heat, completing a nice chunk of hand-finish work on both the new Clark Ranch trail and lower Mother Urban. They also removed a ton of thistle on Tommy's Two Step so you will longer have to ride/hike the prickly gauntlet.
The team also completed a challenging, hand-built connection between the bottom of Cyn City and Tommy's Two Step. This spur will dump you on the Flat Iron double track followed by a short climb on Riser that will place you about a third of the way up Tommy's if you're looking to climb up for another lap.
Your Ex's may live in Texas but ours(the mini ex's that is) have been living on Treasure Hill, busting through the rocky terrain on our way to the finish of Mother Urban. We're about two weeks out from completing this challenging two-year project.
Have a trailriffic weekend and be sure to incorporate Charlie's 10 Seconds of Kindness in your trail adventures and help spread the stoke! #trailreport KÜH
