“Great Trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The "Rail Trail" runs through the heart of Park City. From Historic Main Street all the way to Coalville. Once the rail bed for the UP Train that would haul the silver from the mines in Park City. It is a great trail for, walking, hiking, bike riding, and skiing in the winter.

“Go explore (with convenience and safety)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I've run, hiked and biked along this trail over the last year (on various visits) and I love that this trail is well-maintained without losing too much of the natural elements around it.

“Biked the Trails around Park City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

I'm not sure if we technically were on the Union Pacific Rail Trail, but there are so many wonderful bike trails around Park City, you can choose your route. We headed out of Park City toward Kimball Junction, following a paved trail toward a historic barn, with beautiful mountain scenery all around. This route went under the highway and then by a stream and into aspens - beautiful. We didn't turn around when the trail stopped but followed a residential road and made a circuit route, stopping midway at the rec center at Kimball Junction to use the bathrooms. We'd packed our lunches, ate and headed back to the bike shoppe (Cole sports, rented the bikes for around $20 each - look for a discount coupon in the tourist coupon book). The total route we took was about 17 miles, would've been about 7 if we hadn't continued on to the junction. Beautiful country with wonderful bike trails, the ride was a highlight of our trip for both the kids and adults.
