Sunshine, mild weather and hundreds of miles of trails lead to nearly endless summer recreation, from mountain biking for all abilities to boating on Lake Jordanelle. Between hiking, zip lining, scenic chairlift rides, stand-up paddle boarding, horseback riding and Blue Ribbon fly fishing, the most difficult decision you’ll face is which adventure to try first.
With hundreds of miles of well-maintained trails to explore, Park City offers easy access to hiking from every neighborhood -- from the Sweeney Switchbacks above Main Street to the Aspen-lined trails that wind throughout Deer Valley Resort. With such connectivity between the town and its trails, you can get away from it all deep into the mountains, then easily walk to lunch or “apres-hike” snacks from the trailhead. Ask your concierge about guided hikes exploring Park City’s mining history and other unique landmarks.
One of the first ride centers worldwide to earn gold-level status from the International Mountain Bicycling Association, Park City offers over 450 miles of singletrack terrain -- much of it interconnected. From the wide, beginner-friendly network of Round Valley to the steep, technical turns of Deer Valley Resort and Glenwild, Park City offers terrain for every type of rider. Veterans will revel in the challenge of Crest Trail and the legendary “Puke Hill,” while intermediate riders can gain confidence on Mid-Mountain Trail, which winds from Deer Valley Resort to Canyons Village.
Whether you’re seeking a private getaway on a Jack Nicklaus Signature course or a single game during your summer vacation, the distance-boosting altitude and cool summer temperatures of Park City may just give you the best round you’ve played all year. Choose from 15 public and private courses, each with a unique mountain aesthetic, from red desert rock to the peaks of pine-covered mountains.
Whether you’re a veteran seeking a lifetime biggest catch or a novice thrilled by the rush of the river and the scenery of a mountain canyon, Park City is an ideal destination for fly fishing. With blue ribbon fisheries on the Provo and Canyon Rivers, you can enjoy one of Utah’s most relaxing pastimes any time of year -- even winter.
The thrill of flying down a mountain isn’t limited to winter at Park City Mountain Resort. With one of the longest alpine slides in the world, an on-mountain alpine coaster, and zipline rides, Park City offers plenty of chances to feel the wind on your face in summer as well. You’ll also find miniature golf, a climbing wall, kids’ activities and scenic chairlift rides.
The only place on earth were you can ride a bobsled like an Olympian (even in summer!), watch future World Cup athletes train for glory in a spectacular water show, and fly down a 1,500-foot zipline, the Utah Olympic Park is an experience unique to Park City. Don’t forget to wander through the Alf Engen Ski Museum for a taste of Olympic history.
