Mid-February hiking/snowshoeing in PC, pref near PCMR

Any suggestions? We're 4 avid snowshoers in the East and will be in PC for a week skiing all 3 resorts but staying at PCMR. Not planning on having a vehicle. I am aware of the interactive hiking website at mountaintrails.org so I guess I'm looking for specific trail suggestions, do's/don'ts,etc. Thanks!!

Definitely check out the trail map for Mountain Trails. Rob's Trail just off SR224 coming into PC is a great spot. The trail itself will get packed pretty quickly but you have lots of options. The trail winds through aspens and ultimately comes out into a large snowfield overlooking Canyons Resort. No real avalanche danger in this area unless you really kept going.

Another favorite of ours is Empire Pass. You can drive up SR224 towards the Montage at Deer Valley and keep going. You'll hit a gate but can park there, walk up another half mile or so, then you'll have access to an entire ridgeline above Deer Valley Resort with spectacular views. This is definitely heavier snow snowshoeing. You need to have basic common sense on snow slides, but shouldn't be anything notable unless you really got out there.

Have fun.

Avid snowshoers? If you find the areas around the town of Park City a bit too crowded, or you don't care to see rooftops in the distance, try making your way to Wasatch National Forest. It's a quick drive to Kamas, UT and the road into the High Uinta area (Mirror Lake Highway - Utah State Route 150) is open for the first 20 miles or so into the forest and a few nice, well marked trails are found in that stretch. However, you may see or hear snowmobilers in that area.

If you don't have a vehicle during your stay, but wish you could get out there and back for a day, our company (Park City Four Wheel Drive) offers one day rentals. We deliver and pickup the vehicle directly to your accommodations.

Have fun!
