One of the many things to love about Park City is the easy access to great hiking and biking trails. A personal favorite is Mid Mountain Trail. Mid Mountain Trail runs from the Silver Lake Village at Deer Valley, through the upper portion of Park City Mountain Resort, and winding its way over to Canyons Resort.
Accessing the Mid Mountain Trail, from Canyons Resort Village, is easy . . . maybe too easy. It involves a scenic ride up the Red Pine Gondola, taking you from 6800 ft. in the resort village to 8100 ft. in elevation, dropping you off next to the Red Pine Lodge. Stepping off the gondola, just above the Red Pine Gondola loading/unloading zone, the trail head picks-up.
The Mid Mountain Trail spoils riders with buffed out single track, rolling through scented pine trees, lush green foliage, yellow, white and blue wild flowers, and mountain views. Some work is required during a few short climbs, but every push of the pedal and drip of sweat is well worth it.
Mid Mountain trail is a not-to-be-missed for intermediate or better, riders! Check-out Mid Mountain Trail for a great opportunity to get some wheels on some of the best dirt in Utah, maybe even the best in North America!

Canyons Resort is the newest of Park City’s three ski resorts, closest from airport, and the largest in Utah. Before Talisker purchased Canyons Resort in 2008, it was already rated one of the top ski resorts in the world. Approximately 3 years, and an entire re-creation later, Canyons Resort has become more than just the fourth largest ski resort in North America. At 4,000 acres: it’s become a premier four-season mountain destination. SKI magazine has ranked Canyons Resort #10 for the 2012/2013 ski season! Canyons Resort real estate has also become a great place to buy a second home ski property if you are in the market for Park City real estate.
