The Armstrong Trail Park City – Mountain biking in Park City
Happy 4th of July to everyone! We hope you are out enjoying the great weather we have today. The overnight rain has the trails in perfect shape for biking or hiking. We are starting a new weekly blog here at Mountain Home Real Estate. We will be highlighting a trail around town each week. This week we are starting with the Armstrong Trail.
The Armstrong trail is located directly behind the Silver Star real estate project to the north of Old Town and Park City Mountain Resort.
Armstrong Trail was created a couple years ago and offers a great uphill climbing option to reach Mid Mountain Trail and the rest of Park City Mountain Resorts trail network.
It is also nice for hikers because it is uphill only for mountain bikers. This means you don’t have to worry about bikers cruising downhill around blind corners etc.
Armstrong Trail climbs about 4 miles and 1,600 vertical feet. The climb is steady by Park City standards and overall is not very technical outside of a few rocky sections.
Mountain Trails Foundation offers a great interactive page on their website. You can see the Armstrong Trail on the link below:
Below are some additional pictures from the trail:
If you are looking for a great climb that gives access to numerous downhill options, look no further than the Armstrong Trail Park City.

Park City Mountain Resort opened in 1963 (Originally Treasure Mountain) and is now a premier winter and summer vacation destination. In the winter, the Park City Resort has 3,300 acres of ski terrain, 104 trails, one super pipe and four terrain parks. It is a great resort to enjoy both skiing and snowboarding in the popular Park City ski community. Park City Mountain Resort resort real estate is the only ski resort real estate in Park City that offers night skiing/boarding for those who can’t get enough during day light hours.
In the summer you can ride Utah’s only Alpine Coaster, the Alpine Slide (one of the longest in the country), or fly through the air on the Zip Rider. If you take your adventure with a little less adrenaline, you can catch a lift to explore hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails.
Location and scarcity will always make Old Town real estate a good bet when looking for a primary or second home in the Park City real estatemarket.
