Park City Trail Guide
Park City’s trail system entails approximately 400 miles of continuous, non-motorized recreational trail. Spanning two world-class mountain resorts (one is the largest in the US at 7,300 acres) and an additional 8,000 acres of preserved open space, Park City has been designated a Gold Level Ride Center by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA). From mountainous, alpine terrain reaching altitudes of nearly 10,000’, to rolling high desert, Park City’s trail system is predominantly buffed single-track interspersed with occasional technical sections.
Summer months present trail access for mountain bikers, hikers and trail runners. Cool mountain air, world-class visitor amenities, historic points of interest and ease of access to the trail system brings visitors from around the nation. Despite its popularity, Park City’s extensive trail system delivers ample opportunity for solitude and reconnection with Nature.
During winter months, the Mountain Trails Foundation grooms nearly 50 kilometers of trail for Nordic skiing in Round Valley and on the Historic Rail Trail. As the sports of fat-tire biking, snowshoeing and winter trail-running gain momentum, a robust system of packed, single-track trails is quickly developing, both in the Round Valley area and on some parts of the mountain, outside ski area boundaries.
The History of Mountain Trails Foundation
Since its inception, the Mountain Trails Foundation has been an advocate for trails, working with local government entities, private landowners and developers. Spring forward to the current day to appreciate how the landscape has changed. Today, over 400 continuous miles of non-motorized trails now exist in Park City. Teamwork and a thriving community have created a trail system that is unrivaled.
While it is the Mountain Trails Foundation’s mission to build, maintain and advocate for Park City’s non-motorized trail system, it takes hard work from other dedicated entities in the community to support such an extensive, world-class trail system.
