Description

Welcome the ghosts of miners, railroaders, ladies of the night, and lost tribes as they join you on thoughtfully curated walking tours of Park City, Utah. A Walker's Guide to Park City introduces you to thirty walks around the town, the ski resorts, public parks, and sumptuous suburbs. Backpacks and hiking boots are not required. Almost all of these walks are on paved paths and smooth trails and are less than four miles (6.4 km) in length. Long before Park City evolved into a ski town and one of the world's best-loved resort destinations, its canyons served as a thoroughfare for trappers and traders. In the mid-nineteenth century, the region became a Mormon agricultural outpost occupied by homesteaders and lumberjacks, and a gateway to the California Gold Rush. When prospectors discovered silver in the local mountains, Park City morphed into a bawdy Old West mining town, settled by fortune seekers, rugged adventurers, and immigrant laborers from around the globe. Millions of people now visit Park City to ski and bicycle its Olympic slopes and terrain parks, and attend the Sundance Film Festival, without knowing that this scenic sportsman's paradise is a fascinating place to explore on foot. Reclaimed railways, old mine roads, pedestrian friendly neighborhoods, and thousands of acres of preserved open space endow Park City with an expansive network of diverse and well-maintained walkways. With new trails and connections continuously being added, this guidebook will become your most valued companion as you find your way through the maze of more than four hundred miles of paths and trails traversing the urban and wild landscapes of this alluring alpine community. Included with the maps and directions for each of these walks are distances, elevations, difficulty ratings, and descriptions of notable features. These routes were selected to accommodate anyone with a water bottle and an open slot in their day. Riding Park City's free buses makes for easy access to a
