10 Park City Mountain Summer Trails

The Park City area has hundreds of trails winding through it, including many through the Park City Mountain Resort. With so many trails, it can be confusing to know which one to pick or which ones are even open for the season. This is a guide to what you need to know about the ten trails the resort has open in the summer.

  1. Armstrong Trail

    The Armstrong trail is 4 miles long and is mixed use, but is uphill biking only. It is one of the most popular trails in Park City and has a sustained, though not steep climb. It shares a trailhead with the Spiro trail and intersects with the Mid Mountain trail. To access the trail, you should use the Silver Spur lift.

  2. Crescent Mine Grade

    The Crescent Mine Grade is a 3.9-mile long trail for mixed use. It intersects with Jenni’s trail and the Mid Mountain trail. Below the intersection with Jenni’s Trail, the Crescent Mine Grade becomes a downhill biking only trail.

  3. Jenni’s Trail

    Jenni’s Trail is 5.1 miles long and is a wide single track trail with moderate grade. It is a signature trail of the resort. To get to the top of the trail, you can take either the Town Lift or the PayDay Lift. It can be hiked in both directions, but it is uphill biking only until it intersects with the CMG.

  4. John’s to Sweeny’s Trail

    John’s to Sweeney’s trail is a 3.4 mile trail that works its way through a series of switchbacks. Its trailhead is at the top of the Town Lift, and it ends at the bottom of the same lift. The trail is mixed use, but its roots and rocky sections make it better for more advance mountain bike riders.

  5. Loose Moose Trail

    The Loose Moose trail is a 1 mile trail for downhill hiking and biking only. It connects the CMG trail and Jenni’s trail.

  6. Mid Mountain Trail

    The Mid Mountain trail is a single track trail that is one of Park City’s most famous. It is at an elevation of 8,000 feet and crosses all three of the town’s ski resorts. This beautiful trail is mixed used and connects to many of the other trails.

  7. Mojave Trail

    The Mojave trail is 1 mile long and is for hiking and biking in both directions. It is good for all skill and difficulty levels because it has moderate, consistent grades. It is the best route to take down the mountain after riding the Crescent Lift.

  8. Silver Spur Trail

    The Silver Spur trail is just over half a mile long and is mixed use. It starts near the base area of the mountain and provides access to the Spiro and Armstrong trails.

  9. Spiro Trail

    The Spiro trail is 3.1 miles and is quite popular as a mixed use trail. It has a sustained grade and scenic switchbacks before heading up toward the Mid Mountain trail.

  10. Tommy’s Two Step Trail

    The Tommy’s Two Step trail is 1.5 miles and is mixed use. The trail goes through aspen woods until it reaches the Mid Mountain trail. It is another way to get down from the Crescent Lift.
