Winter Trails Overview
80KM OF GROOMED WINTER TRAIL
While Park City has long been known as an alpine skiing destination, Summit County’s Nordic Trail System has blossomed to nearly 80 kilometers of superbly groomed trail. As fat-tire bikes, snowshoeing and winter trail running grow in popularity, the winter single-track trails are expanding likewise.
Hi there, I’m Rick (and team) with your winter trail update

Morning Wasatch backers.
A quick tongue twister for this tongue twister of a week
Trail Report Friday 22, 2021
Snow come, snow blow, Bo watches the snow come and go.
Now no snow, mucky mud puddles. Muddled puddles making trails mucky mud puddles.
No snow mud slows, time to get out before more snow blows.
Tricky week, what to think, Ruts in trails well I think that just stinks.
Don’t blink, just think if the trail gets too muddy think before you sink.
What I’m trying to say is get out and play,
Because you won’t want to let this day waste away.
Round valley is open, and the trails are tacky.
But with the sun out, to stay in you must be wacky.
Soft spots will be here and there,
And trust me you won’t be able to go everywhere.
Round Valley is the spot close to town,
Skyridge and High star would be nice if you search around.
Flip floppy weather will keep us on our toes,
What will happen next week…no one knows.
Enjoy today folks.

Tried running it around noon today and Happy Gilmore from the North Trailhead is no go..
Love this!! We’ll done!
Well played sir, well played.
Good Morning trail users.
With the recent curveball of weather and the upcoming systems moving in this weekend, expect the trails to move from frozen to sloppy in a blink of an eye. Please respect closures and if you are itching for a ride check out trails hanging around lower altitudes. The winter switch might have been switched... #trailreport ... See MoreSee Less
Also wondering about RV. Yesterday was in the 60s and sunny. G2G or still too muddy?
How’s RV looking tonight? Like oct. or dec.?
Good Morning Park City and what a beautiful morning it is!
Trail Report October 15, 2021
I know, I know it’s going to be hard with this amazing day we have, but after checking multiple trailheads we don’t think the single track will be ready to roll today. With full sun, temps rising and about 1-3 inches of snow on the trail expect it to be on the messy side. We will be out today and tomorrow checking conditions but as of now please stay away from the single track and stick to the doubles and hard surfaces. Looks like the weather is going full circle and will be bike friendly soon, so hold tight. We might have some more time to squeeze in those rides you didn’t get too this season.
At the UOP the Yeti trail will be closed for several weeks for ski trail clearing. For your safety respect the closure and enjoy the thought that ski season is knocking on the door.
It’s that time of year of Live PC Give PC. If you want to show your love to the trails you enjoy head over the www.MountainTrails.org or www.livepcgivepc.org/organization/Mountain-Trails-Foundation and donate today! any amount is received with much love.
That’s all folks check back in with us as we continue checking conditions. We will try our best to get you back out there asap.

Aloha Park City! Just a quick trail condition update for those of you who haven't looked out the window recently or reside at lower environs...
Late yesterday, we saw heavy rain which turned to snow overnight, leaving the upper elevation trails buried in several inches or more and the lower elevation trails blanketed in a slushy/snowy/muddy mix. Let's just call it "snud".
Whatever you call it, conditions are not conducive to trail use right now and won't likely dry out anytime soon. We'll do our best to stay on top of the conditions, but for now, please stick to the asphalt or gravel trails. #RutsSuck #trailreport
Have a great one!

Happy Friday Park City! Your short but bittersweet weekend trail update for October 8th-10th...
It's a wet one out there this morning and we've got 100% chance of more precip for the remainder of today and tonight. Yes folks, mud season is upon us... Please stick to the pavement this weekend and avoid creating any unnecessary trail damage. #RutsSuck!
The Mountain Trails team has been super fortunate to work with some amazingly talented, creative and driven individuals over the years. Our seasonal trail crew members have long been the heart and soul of our organization. They are the "boots on the ground" and they represent everything that is great about our mission.
Yesterday we said so long to two of our best- Tim McChesney and Jon Huyck. They have been with MTF for the past 3 seasons and have played a huge role in completing major projects including the Lake Lackawaxen trail, Charlie's 9K, the Big Easy, Milky Way at Skyridge, and the yet to be finished Mother Urban and 9K to Mid Mtn trails, to name just a few.
Deadfall removal, drainage work, side-veg, signage, hand finish work and even dog poop removal are part of a day at the office for these guys and the pride they take in their work is easy to see.
We're going to remain optimistic that they both return for a 4th season but if not, it's been a great run and we wish them nothing but the best in their future endeavors. Tim & Jon, thanks for the effort. You guys rock! #trailreport

You guys do such amazing work and many times us as riders don’t take the time to thank you enough. This year has been a great year and I for one really appreciate all the hard work that goes into making such memorable trails.
Thanks Mountain Trails for all the awesome trail work you do. You guys rock.
Thank you for all the work on our great trail system !
Thanks to all of you who work on these amazing trails!
Thanks for the good times over the years Tim and Jon, it was an absolute pleasure working with you both!
So appreciative! Just enjoyed Charlie’s 9K earlier in the week it was magical! Thanks for all that you do
Thanks for everything you do! I'm assuming that the trails are still too wet/muddy, even Round Valley and Glenwild?
Thanks for it all!!
Thank you MTF!!
