Mountain biking in Park City, Utah is truly an exhilarating experience, and it's no wonder that it is often considered some of the best in the world. I have not traveled the world Mountain Biking but  I have experienced trails throughout the Mountain West and will strongly argue that Park City is one of the best. The summer climate, the rolling terrain, the soil, the variety of vegetation, the views and, if you want, you can get a chair lift ride to the top.



Here are some key reasons why Park City stands out as a premier destination for mountain biking enthusiasts:


  1. Varied and Scenic Terrain: Park City offers a diverse range of terrain, catering to riders of all skill levels. Whether you're a beginner looking for gentle, rolling trails or an advanced rider seeking adrenaline-pumping descents, Park City has it all. The landscape encompasses breathtaking mountains, dense forests, expansive meadows, and challenging rocky sections, providing a stunning backdrop for every ride.
  2. Extensive Trail Network: Park City boasts an extensive and well-maintained trail network, with over 450 miles of trails to explore. From purpose-built flow trails to technical single tracks and epic backcountry adventures, the variety of trails is unmatched. The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) has designated Park City as a Gold-Level Ride Center, recognizing its exceptional trail system.
  3. World-Class Mountain Bike Parks: Park City is home to two renowned mountain bike parks: Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort. These parks feature an array of gravity-focused trails, including jump lines, berms, drops, and tabletops. The bike parks cater to riders of all levels, with progressive features that allow beginners to build skills and experts to push their limits. The bike park at Deer Valley and at Trailside is the best, in my opinion. Trailside is free to access.
  4. Olympic Legacy: Park City's mountain biking scene benefits from its Olympic legacy. The city hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics, and the facilities developed for the event now provide excellent biking opportunities. The Utah Olympic Park, for instance, offers lift-served mountain biking, allowing riders to access high-altitude trails and enjoy stunning panoramic views.
  5. Progressive Mountain Biking Culture: Park City has a thriving mountain biking community and a culture that embraces the sport. Local organizations and clubs, such as Mountain Trails Foundation, work tirelessly to maintain and expand the trail network. The community's passion for mountain biking is palpable, and visitors will often find themselves surrounded by like-minded individuals who share their love for the sport.
  6. Accessibility and Amenities: Park City's proximity to Salt Lake City International Airport makes it easily accessible for travelers from around the world. Once you arrive, you'll find a wide range of amenities, including bike shops, rentals, and guided tours. The town itself offers an abundance of lodging options, restaurants, and après-biking activities, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable stay for riders.
