Mountain Biking From Your Back Door
Looking to try a few new mountain biking trails this summer?
Summer is a great time to explore some of the 450+ miles of trails in Park City. The trail system has really expanded over the past few years, largely in part to the good work of the Mountain Trails Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the building, maintaining, and protecting trails for non-motorized use in the Park City area. Now Park City is one of just a few locations ranked as a Gold-Level Ride Center by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA). From free flowing cross-country single track with incredible views, to technically challenging downhill trails, there is truly something to please every rider.
I’m new to the area, how do I find the best trail to start on?
Our favorite way to find new trails and plan our ride is using the Trailforks app, which is a free mountain biking trail app that allows you to download maps for your ride. As a navigation app, it is particularly valuable because you are able to see where you’ve been on the trail map, orientate yourself and find your route.
I’m in Salt Lake, is access easy for me?
One of the best things we love about Park City is so many of the neighborhoods have direct access or a connecting trail to the trail system. What a great lifestyle! You can literally bike out your backdoor. But if you’re a Salt Lake resident, a quick 20 minute drive up the canyon and you’re able to enjoy it all too. It couldn’t be easier for anyone living along the Wasatch Front or Wasatch Back.
Tell me more about these homes in Park City with backdoor access. That sounds great.
