One of our favorite activities in the Park City area is mountain biking. We have spectacular mountain terrain, along with gentle paths that will surely please just about any mountain biker. Here is a look at some of our favorites.
Starting in Park City, the Mid Mountain also climbs the popular Spiro Trail. You will briefly ride the Powerline trail before making your way to the Canyons Resort. You will enjoy the finish that is a paved path that will take you over the Farm Trail and the Olympic Trail back to the trailhead. It is a cross-country ride that is just over a 24 mile loop.
You’ll find the trailhead just off Mellow Mountain Road. It’s a short ¾-mile uphill ride to the top of the mountain to enjoy the views. Then you have two choices for your downhill ride, Solamere or Masonic. You can also check out other trails that encircle Masonic Hill.
The Park City Mountain Resort/Old Town area represents the majority of trails just above the town. Many of these trails can be accessed via chairlifts or roads, none are downhill specific. Rather, they are multi-use and two way, so you need to be alert for traffic, especially when heading downhill.
You’ll find a variety of trail types including single track, buff trails, switchbacks, aspen groves, and more. However, you’ll also have great views!
The Deer Valley trails encompass the trails running through the resort, including those that butt up near Empire Lodge, and running north to Jordanelle and Deer Valley Drive. You can find many downhill-only, lift-accessed trails, along with multi-use two-way trails.
Empire Link Trail
This trail runs from the Mid-Mountain trail, past John’s 99 to Sam’s Trail to give you a taste of many different trails. Empire Link is full of bermed switchbacks, roots, lips and loam, making a perfect for those who want to shred!
Start at the Glenwild trailhead and head up the Stealth trail. You’ll then turn onto Flying Dog where you’ll find a clockwise loop. Then you’ll descend onto Flying Dog’s switchbacks where you can then take Cobblestone Loop to drop toward Glenwild. When you reach Glenwild, go left and you’ll find the easier half of the loop back to the trail head.
