Hiking Trails for All Abilities
The historic White Barn along the Farm Trail is one of the most iconic landmarks in Park City. With an easy access trailhead off SR-224 across from the white barn, this 1.4 mile paved trail is perfect for a family outing or a stroll into the sunset. Surrounded by picturesque aspen groves, bubbling McLeod Creek, and grazing horses in the background pastures, don’t forget your camera for photo worthy views at every juncture of this trail.
Rob’s Trail explores the Canyons side of Park City Mountain, offering panoramic views of the Swaner Preserve and surrounding mountains. It takes you through gorgeous aspen and evergreen forest and is littered with wildflowers throughout the summer months. To access the trailhead turn onto Bear Hollow Drive off of SR-224, 1.5 miles up the road will bend sharply to the right, you can park anywhere along the bend to access Rob’s Trail, have fun!
While the Iron Mountain trail is just a 3 mile out and back, the elevation gain will leave you feeling proud of your feat (and deserving of some summer après afterwards!). The trail begins through a beautiful aspen grove before entering the dense forest to begin your vertical approach. At the top you are rewarded with some of the most stunning views of Park City and the Mountain Resort. Trailhead is located in the Meadows Drive neighborhood off of Iron Canyon Court.
The Uintas are located just 20 miles from town and contain the most extensive wilderness area (500,000 acres) in the lower 48 states, and the only major mountain range running east-west in the US. Plentiful alpine lakes dot the landscape here and offer excellent trout fishing (and if you can bear the mountain water – swimming!) opportunities. If you are looking for day hikes, then head to the western part of the range. Most of the trails here are relatively easy to navigate and many summits are within reach. The wilderness part of the range offers remote backpacking adventures in a rugged landscape for those looking to get away from it all. Most of the peaks here can’t be done in one day, but all of the peaks over 13,000’ in Utah are located in this part of the range. The eastern section of the range holds many summits that are easily accessed in a day, and while many of the trails aren’t marked, the routes are often easy to follow. Stop by the US Forest Service ranger station in Kamas, on the way to the Uintas, for maps and information.
