great bike trail
Jun 2020
great trail for our rented mountain bikes. Beware, while the grade is not steep - being an abandoned rail line - it is constant so e-bikes are recommended

Flattest biking in Park City
Aug 2019
Being a rail trail means easy biking with no big hills to climb. But it also connects to other more strenuous trails (e.g. the Silver Quinn trail near Rt 40) that can add some more challenge and time to a bike outing. Although asphalt paved, some sections are in rather poor condition with many large cracks making for a somewhat bumpy ride. Also watch out for the moguls(!!!) in the lower section towards Rt 40. But the scenery there is worth it, you follow a stream with beaver dams, many ducks, and on my last ride a moose cow with calf crossed the trail ahead of me. The afore-mentioned Silver Quinn trail connects to some out of the way roads that will lead you to Kimball Junction and a return to Park City on another paved bike trail mostly parallel to Rt 224. BTW, you can rent e-bikes at many locations in Park City, or if you like mountain biking, you can bring your own or rent one from any of a number of bike shops in the area.

Very nice Drive

We enjoyed all of our travels out of Park City. It was a great base and we enjoyed the Rail Trail and learning about railroad history in Utah.

Wandering away from the hubbub is easy using the rail trail. i was thoroughly enjoying the environs until I stepped in wet tar- a souvenir I was not expecting.

Using the trails, you may walk from Main St without crossing a major road

The rail trail is paved in Park City and hard pack east of Park City. It is connected to other trails around Park City and into Park Meadows via tunnels under Route 248. Otherwise, you may hike, ride, and in the winter, Nordic ski, the 26 or so miles east towards Coalville. It is scenic, even in Park City, with the potential of running across mule deer or a moose. Generally, everyone is friendly but be careful around dogs who don't know you (just like anywhere). I use it to walk from our neighborhood to connect with the Poison Creek Trail that leads into town. Park City built several tunnels under busy roads so you don't need to mingle with cars and trucks. It is truly an asset to our town - and Summit County.

Relaxing Ride
Jul 2018 • Family
If you like to stay off the beaten path with nice views and a very safe secure bike ride then the Union Pacific Rail Trail is a ride for you. We so happened to have rented electric bikes the day we did the ride which really make the trek a lot of fun. We were able to peddle when we wanted and then when we got tired we used the electric portion that made the ride so relaxing. The bike path is very nice and if you are into biking you can go for a long time. Make sure to bring water as there are not many places to stop along your trip. So if you like to bike and wish to be away from the hustle and bustle out in nature, then this Rail Trail is for you. Enjoy your ride!!!

Nice long trail for biking - but it the interstate is a distraction
Jul 2018
Once we found the rail trail, it was a nice ride, except that it follows the interstate. I would suggest doing a 20mile destination ride from Park City to the next town if you can arrange a pick-up. There are other shorter trails in Park City that were more fun for Mtn Biking. The rail trail is a great connector to most of the other trails.

Decent trail..better for bikes
Jun 2018 • Family
We rented bikes and rode the trail for about 7 miles one way. Caught near Prospector Park(?). Trail started as paved and turned to dirt after the first two miles or so. Was out in the open so would recommend doing early or later to avoid the direct sunlight. Mainly bikers on this section of the trail.

Public trail over historic RR tracks - go for miles and miles
Sep 2017 • Family
This trail is so beautiful - it goes for 20+ miles and is a mix of cement and hard pack dirt. Great for biking, hiking, running, a leisurely stroll or a long run. In the winter you can cross country ski, snowshoe, hike in good boots, or snow-bike! Such a great way to enjoy nature through the heart of town. Does not circle back - it is an out-and-back activity... peaceful and serene!

Great Biking Riding Path
Jun 2017 • Family
This is a wonderful bike path or even walking to see Park City and its surroundings. It is both paved and dirt so if you are biking make sure you have at a minimum a Trail bike.
