Beginner Hiking Trails in Park City

For the novice hiker, it might be best to stick with some of the easier trails, but don’t feel like you are missing out on anything, the scenery is just as breathtaking as the more difficult ones, they are just easier on your feet and legs! Beaver Creek Trail, for example is about 4. 5 miles long and travels along a stream known for its beaver inhabitants and the beautiful Yellow Fawn Lilies that grow along the trail.  (It’s a great biking trail as well!)  Rail Trail is another simpler trail – an excellent choice for families.  It is a longer one – almost 30 miles – but is relatively flat and easy on the legs and the eyes!  Check out the sunflowers cheerily blooming along the way, and your kids will love seeing the happy cows and contented horses munching away at the lush green grass in the farmland that surrounds Weber River.

Looking for More of a Challenge?

Intermediate hikers (and runners!) will appreciate the Glenwild Loop, with scenery straight out of an old Western! Better yet, you might even catch a glimpse of a moose if wildlife is what interests you!  Deer Valley Resort offers many hiking trails as well, including some you can access by ski lift.  The mountains stand majestically in the background as you hike through the evergreens, occasionally catching glimpses of local rivers and ponds – it’s a stroll you won’t soon forget!
