Description

This challenging run gains its elevation quickly but steadily, so it is a good efficient workout. As one of the few hiking/running only trails in the area, you won't have to share with the mountain bike crowd.

Start from the end of Iron Mountain Court and head through a couple small clearings before becoming enveloped in a huge aspen forest. Enjoy a brief stint in pine trees as you climb ever upwards before emerging onto the open ridge just below the summit of Iron Mountain. Next, the Iron Canyon Trail crosses Mid Mountain Trail, but you can reach the top of Iron Mountain by staying straight on the Iron Canyon Trail, heading southwest towards the saddle. At the saddle area, get on the paved road briefly and look for the dirt road to the north by the bridge. Take this dirt road for a few feet until a smaller path branches off north and heads up to the Iron Mountain summit. From here you'll have great views over the Park City and the Canyons ski area.
