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

What’s happening, winter people! Here’s the lowdown for Tuesday, 1/18/22. At 9:30 AM it’s 25 degrees at Quinn’s. We knocked out all the nordic track in Round Valley with our drags to conserve snow, except for Hanscom’s and Barrel Roll. It’s still looking pretty good out there, though it’s getting a little dirty since we haven’t had new snow in a while. Luckily, we still don’t have big bald patches on the wide groomers. Ski it while you can!
We also drag-groomed the Clark Ranch 3K yesterday afternoon. It’s got some windblown bumps but it’s also riding pretty well. All of the singletrack is still good to go in all areas, including Round Valley, Clark Ranch, and Bonanza Flat. Speaking of Bonanza, we hacked out a flatter path the other day to get from Empire Pass to the non-motorized, multi-use singletrack trails in that area. The snow is still pretty soft in places, so bring your snowshoes, cross country skis, or fat bike.
One note of etiquette, when touring the trails, please take the time to throw anything natural such as sticks or rocks off the trails as they can get stuck in our equipment and they also heat up in the sun and quickly melt the surrounding snow. Thank you!
Jonathan and Rick

One of Rich Perrier's favorite saying "A stick a day is all we ask" then I would add 'or a rock'. Photo is from Skid Row last week, folding saw comes in handy.
Are you saying the Fat Bike loop in Bonanza is ready?
Good morning folks!
Grooming report for January 16.
The crew conquered all of Round Valley Nordic this morning. Most of the single track is still looking great and in attempts to conserve what snow we have left we likely won't be touching the single track much until we get some new snow. Fingers crossed for snow sooner rather then later!
Clark Ranch is still looking good on both the Nordic and single track front. Our efforts up in Bonanza to get the single online has been ramped up this weekend and is ready for adventurous people to help us pack it in!
It's looking like another gorgeous day as we dive head first into second of half of January (already...?).
Be safe and enjoy the day!

Fantastic out there today. Great job team!
I’m ready to head to Bonanza!!!!
So I’m confused…I thought I read a few weeks ago that you weren’t going to groom and set Bonanza this winter (which I disappointed with) - did I misunderstand? What’s the situation/plan for BF trails? Thanks!
It was great! Thank you!!
Your dog days of winter grooming report for this beUtahful, Saturday, January 15th...
We have 25-degrees at 10am with an expected high today of 37. It was super slow going out there with Pantera Roja this morning.
All 30K of nordic was given the once over, some of it the twice over.
Freeze/thaw, hard pack conditions definitely up the challenge, so expect a few rumble strips here and there. Just be sure to hum as you skate over the top of them... Ummmm um um um
For all you fat heads out there, it should be another killer day on the single.
The ice road truckers have been out in Clark Ranch this morning, buffing the rough on both the Nordic and single track, so if you're looking for an escape from the masses, be sure to check it out.
It's another stellar looking Saturday in the Park, so get out there and get after it! #trailreport
Frosty and the Snowmen ... See MoreSee Less
Awesomeness as always from MTF. The single track is so fast!!! The small single track that cuts off from Rademan Ridge (then Rademan takes a 90 degree turn) and then connects again to Rademan after a switchback or two- that portion would love to have a snowmobile roll over it! I know it’s not your normal grooming but it is a disaster for bikers and hikers(due to human poor choices….heee). Just thought I would throw that out there. Thank you again for incredible grooming this season!
Beautiful day to skate ski! Thank you so much for all you do. 🙂
This is what's actually happening on local trails. It's the dogs' fault.
We're jealous. We want a Cat ride 😁.
Think I saw you this morning. Thanks for the great work you all do!!
It was wonderful today. Thanks!
Tami Hansen….check out Round Valley.
Yay it’s Friday Park City!
Trail Report January 14th, 2022
Expect a full Nordic refresh today with the exception of Barrel Roll and Hanscoms Hollow.
If I was going to head out today I would definitely head to the Inner Valley or take a sprint down Silver Quinn as they are the groomers choice for the day.
Clark Ranch received some love this early morning and is gliding fast.
The fat bike loop is hard pack, open and fast go on and get your roll on.
