Rented bikes for 1/2 day for $28 per person @ the depot. Nice bikes. Service- outstanding. Trail paved first 3miles then DG surface. Great ride but at about mile 6 you go between the freeways which is loud and distracting. Scenery is beautiful. Many wildflowers even in the dry year. Trail is quite long-26 miles, I think. We turned around... More

Started at White Pines Touring right on the path right off of Bonanza Drive. Headed to the Round Mountain trails to do our first "mountain biking". Not "down the ski-slopes" biking but the place to get your first attempt at up/downs, rocky trails and confidence built up.

Biked the rail trail a couple of times now, most recently last week, and it's just a great trail. Not crowded, great places to rent bikes close to the trail, and you can rent for a half or full day. Unbelievable scenery, and plenty of wildlife along the way. My wife and I went several miles toward Coalville, and it... More

We first rode the Rail Trail when it was just rocks. A few summers ago we were delighted to find it paved. Nice short ride for families. Very easy access now that they built an underground pass.

This is a nice way to walk into Main St. where all the shopping and dining is. It is up hill to walk in but the upside is coming back is much easier. When walking away from town where it is less developed I ran into a good size snake on the paved trail which surprised me in the cool... More

Right into Park City Main Street!!!

Covering more than 30 miles the rail trail which starts in the Prospector Square area of Park City is great fun. The first few miles are paved than the rest is compacted gravel. Beware as you leave Park City you are headed downhill for the next 20 miles! Coming back is a lot harder. You can end at Echo reservoir,... More
