Replaced with a ride from 2013
August 2nd, 2013, Cheryl, Marlene, and I, went for a bike ride up in Park City. We started riding about 9:00 in the morning and it was delightful. Later in the day it did warm up, but we also had a breeze that kept it cool enough. If you haven't been up there for a ride, you might want to know beforehand, that it's hilly. Lot's of hills on these trails.
These pages are new. There have been so many improvements to the trails around Park City, that I decided to replace them with a newer ride up there.
Park City is high up in the mountains and has a lot of paved trails. We rode most of them, plus riding some of the back streets and some roads around the valley. We only managed 32 miles this time, but with all the hills up there, we felt we did enough riding for one day. We Stopped in the old section of town long enough to have an ice cream cone, then headed east along the rail trail. The Rail Trail is an old rail line, that comes up from Echo Junction through Coalville and Wanship to Park City, 30 miles long. Some of it is paved, though most of it running down to Coalville is not. We didn't ride the un-paved section this time, but Marlene and I did 7 miles of it once. Not recommeded on road bikes. I would like to do it all sometime, but only on my mountain bike.

Here is a list of some of the trails we rode along.... the one around Kimball Junction, the Millennium Trail going up the canyon along SR-224, McLeod Creek Trail into Park City, all of the Rail Trail that was paved, many streets in Park City, a road off to the east, called Richardson Flats Road, the Farm Trail leaving Park City, then the Millennium Trail back down to Kimball Junction, 32 miles in all. It seemed a lot more.
