“A favorite multi-use trail showcasing Wasatch singletrack and connecting trails from 3 resorts.”— Megan W
You can access this trail from a few different locations and do it in sections to make it as long or short as you like. A particularly nice place to begin the trail is from Park City Mountain Resort, ascending Armstrong Trail or Spiro Trail. You can also start at the bottom of Mid Mountain trail, in Deer Valley at Silver Lake Village.
Either way, you'll encounter truly extraordinary views of the area as you make your way along the Mid Mountain Trail. There's significant climbing to get up to the trail no matter where you start, but the Deer Valley access and the Spiro Trail climb are both manageable and gradual, not straight up and down.
Mid Mountain Trail is beautiful singletrack through a combination of deep forest, brief passes through open meadows, and along a ridge line. There's a bit of ascending as you make your way north, but nothing brutal. You'll also stay interested with periodic beautiful views out over Park City. You're also likely to see wildflowers and aspen groves along the way.
At the northern end of the trail, you'll have more trail options to choose from in order to return to civilization. Most runners will find their way down into Canyons Resort, then either get a ride from a friend or take the bus back to their starting point. Note: bikes are allowed on this trail.
