Since hosting the International Mountain Bicycling Association’s World Summit in 2008, Park City and its trail system have been on the rise. There are now over 450 miles of trail accessible from town. In addition to new development, Park City continues to show a strong commitment to maintaining and improving existing trails. Between Mountain Trails Foundation, various city and county agencies, Deer Valley Resort, and Park City Mountain (America’s largest ski resort which now includes the Canyons) the combined annual trail budget tops $1 million, and it has every year for more than 10 years.
In the summer the ski slopes transform into world class biking and hiking trails with chair lifts bringing you, your bike and your friends to the top of the mountain. Local businesses rent and repair bikes as well as cater to all kinds of outdoor sports and activities – climbing, kayaking, standup paddle boarding. There is also an enthusiastic road biking community with multiple opportunities to join others for group rides. For example, StayParkCity Cycling is an all-inclusive club that all skill levels can enjoy, from elite road and mountain racers to casual weekend-warriors, while in the process offering exceptional club benefits and good times. And, right outside Maple Ridge Ranches gates is some terrific riding as well, down Weber Canyon Road to Thousand Peaks Ranch, all around the Kamas Valley, out to Mirror Lake, and into Park City through Brown’s Canyon. You’ll find neighbors to join you – just ask!
