Where To Hike In Park City
Here at Park City Grocery Express, we deliver healthy, delicious food all across the city. We love Park City, and all it has to offer. It is known worldwide for everything from fantastic hiking and biking to hosting the Sundance Film Festival. There is a never ending list of fun things to do in this city. Here, we would like to focus on just one of them: hiking. You could spend an entire vacation on Park City’s hiking trails and still feel like you haven’t explored enough. If you’re looking at setting up a hiking trip in Park City, here are some of the most beautiful nature hikes.
This hike is perfect for the whole family. Spanning several miles of beautiful mountains aspens, postcard snapshot of McLeod Creek, and rolling meadows of horses grazing, it’s the perfect trail for the young ones to get exposed to nature without too much exertion. The trail is right off the historic landmark of McPolin Barn when you turn off of Highway 224.
A little more strenuous than Farm Trail, Jenni’s Trail is newer than the other trails on this list. A total of 5.1 miles one way, it starts from the Park City Mountain Resort and ends at the top of Payday Lift. With 1,300 feet of ascending trail with beautiful panoramic views, this is a great hike to take the family on; just make sure they’re up for the 10 mile total, or turn around at the midway station to cut the trek short.
Round Valley Trail System
The Round Valley Trail System runs through around 700 acres of wide open space, all at 6,500 feet above sea level. This makes it an extremely popular trail in late fall and early spring, as there is no cover to protect from the elements in winter/summer. Spanning about 30 miles, the trail can be accessed from multiple trail heads like Quinn’s Junction or Old Ranch Road. Here is a map if you want to plan out your route ahead of time.
Silver Lake Trail
For the more serious hikers out there, the Silver Lake Trail offers a scenic option that will also test your endurance. It winds up around Bald Mountain for two miles with a 1,300 foot elevation gain. Not only do you get a great view of the Jordanelle Reservoir tucked into the Uinta Mountains, but from the top you can hop onto the Ontario Canyon trail for a different route back to Silver Lake Lodge.
Want a hike that makes its way through aspen groves, ridge lines, all the way up to the highest peak in Canyon’s Resort? Fantasy Ridge has a 1,890 foot elevation gain that gives you a beautiful panoramic view of Park City nestled under the Uinta Mountains.
