Northern Utah is a hiker's paradise, so relax and let us take care of the details. The hardest decision you'll have is choosing between our local, Uinta, or Sundance hikes. Summer hikes are recommended during the cooler parts of the day as Park City always seems to have hot, sunny afternoons. Fall hikes see more mild temperatures, with cool and crisp mornings that warm to comfortable afternoons.
We have a variety of trails in the mountains above town we would love to show you. The drive time to the trailhead is typically very short, averaging 10 minutes each direction. You can expect to be on the trail for 2 to 2.5 hours with a knowledgeable guide. We typically pick up our local hikes at 9:00am or after lunch at 1:30pm.
Stewart Falls Hike
Visit a towering waterfall and walk through wildflower covered hillsides with us! After a scenic 45 minute drive we arrive at Sundance Resort. The adventure begins with a chair lift ride. After gaining elevation we unload and begin the three mile hike to impressive Stewart Falls. Stewart Falls drops almost 200 feet in two tiers. While this hike is mostly level to downhill there is a steeper section to reach the falls, we recommend sturdy footwear. We offer this excursion daily at 10am.
The Uinta Mountains host Utah’s highest peaks with 21 lofty mountains reaching 13,000 feet in elevation. Mirror Lake Highway, closed over half the year due to deep snow, has plenty of day hikes that are sure to please. The Uintas have hundreds of alpine lakes, wildlife, and provide more of a wilderness feel than our local hike. Hikes begin at 9:00am daily, and after about 45 minutes of driving, you will be at the trailhead. Hiking time can vary depending of which trail you’re on, but expect the trip five hours to complete, making for a four to five hour excursion. Although we can offer an afternoon outing, there is a high probability of thunderstorms.
Park City Lift Served Hike
Ride the same chair lift you did in January but find out what's under all that snow! Enjoy 1.5 hours of hiking and a relaxing ride up higher into the mountains. We can even arrange to take a thrilling ride back down the mountain on the PCMR alpine slide. This beautiful hike is offered daily starting at 9:00am or at 1:30pm.
What’s Included / What to Bring
All of our hikes are guided and include round-trip transportation from your lodging location in Park City. We divide our trips by pace: leisurely, moderate and aerobic, the time on the trail will vary between 1 to 4 hours depending on which pace you choose. The easiest way to break them down is by mileage, a leisurely tour typically travels about two miles in those two hours. A moderate tour goes three to four miles and aerobic tours cover five plus miles. Oftentimes we’ll save tours with steeper and longer inclines for moderate and aerobic tours, while offering more level trails for leisurely and moderate. Our guides will carry plenty of water and a light snack for the group in their pack, allowing you to stay hands-free to take plenty of pictures or maintain your pace. If you have a reusable bottle, please bring it along to help us cut down on our single-use plastic. Make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses, and comfortable walking shoes.

“We asked our hotel to book us a guided hike totally last minute. At noon we asked if we could go at 1pm. The hotel didn't think it would happen, but they called anyway and it turned out we got a guide for 2pm. Becca showed up and took us on a beautiful 4 mile trek (after she had already done a huge hike that morning). She was delightful and very knowledgeable and even brought water and snacks in her backpack for us on the hike! It was awesome! Would totally do it again.”

“…Two days later we did the hike and slide. We took the lift up to the top of one of the Park City chairs and hiked down to the entrance to the alpine slide. Both kids loved the alpine slide. The guide was fun and had snacks for the kids when we finished the slide. For both adventures we were both picked up and dropped off, which was handy because we didn't have a car...”
