Best Mountain Biking Trails in Park City
Wasatch Crest Trail
Even if you’ve never been to the area, you may have heard about the Wasatch Crest Trail. It’s often considered one of the most popular routes in the region and is a great place for a first-time visitor to start their adventure. You’ll be able to enjoy gorgeous views on this intermediate trail. Some of the local routes are considered iconic in the mountain biking community.
If you’re looking for something a bit easier, the Holy Roller flow trail is perfect for you. It’s a machine-maintained path that stretches over four miles. Just because it’s green doesn’t mean it’s a boring ride, though.
Flying Dog Trail
Positioned just north of Park City, the Flying Dog Trail is a 16-mile loop trail with a total elevation of 2,099 feet. Though you will need to dedicate the better part of a day to this trail, you will be rewarded in turn with some of the most stunning views of northern Utah surrounded by wildflowers!
Park City IMBA Epic
If you’re looking for the ultimate challenge, the Park City IMBA Epic is the way to go. It’s a little over 25 miles and climbs about 3,500 feet during the ride. In total, there are 450 miles of pristine gold-level trails winding through the mountains of Park City, so if none of these are of interest, there’s plenty more for you to discover! We recommend using AllTrails and filtering by mountain biking to a comprehensive list!
