The summer hiking here was just not as scenic as other areas in Park City. There are some nice areas near Red Pine Lodge but we found the hiking around Park City, Empire, and Deer Valley to be more scenic. They are also more accessible. We were dropped off at the base of the resort by the free Park City bus system, but had to hike up to the village (the 20 minutes felt a lot longer in the summer heat with no shade) given the total lack of shuttle service (after our arrival we finally saw a bus). We asked directions to the working gondola (most of the lifts were closed for the summer) at the Grand Summit Hotel where we had planned to have dinner later that day, but the staff at the hotel were quite snooty and unhelpful. Given that this is a tourist destination, we found this quite odd. We made other plans for dinner at place where we would be treated with hospitality. We rode the gondola up to Red Pine Lodge ($15 each). While on the mountain we were studying our map and a Canyons staffer asked if she could help. After we told her what we were looking for she suggested a hike. Unfortunately, only part of the hike was really scenic (part of it was more desert like than forest) and her assesment of the trail length and time required were grossly underestimated.
In summary, there isn't enough here for me to waste my time returning.
