There is nothing like this in New England. You can ride, walk, run forever (or it seems that way). Just outside of town and easy to get on and off if you know where you are.

We rode from Park City to Coalville, about 21 miles, with a tandem bike w/ baby seat, and five mountain bikes, one of which towed a double trailer for children.

Though you can certainly do this on your own, we had a great experience with All Seasons Adventures with equipment and a guide, who carried water and pointed out places of interest along the way

The Rail Trail is really the old railroad bed that served Park City for years. It is a well maintained trail that can give you miles and miles of exercise. If you are up to it, you can ride to Echo Junction about 30 miles away. If you go the longer distance, remember that it is up-hill all the way... More

Went for a run each morning and I loved running on the trail. Usually was dark out, so it was great to not have to worry about cars.

Did this last summer and I wasn't impressed until I got 5 miles from town where the scenery got more interesting.

When we stay in our condo we always go by this beautiful trail to Main Street (about 20 minutes) or to the another way Miles and Miles. We like walking, x-country skiing. Biking at Summer.

I am not really a biker in fact the last time I rode a bike I was probably 30 years ago - some friends talked me into taking this trail and I had a great time - rode into town from the Promontory area and had lunch at Windy Ridge - would do it again
