A favorite trail showcasing Wasatch singletrack - part of an IMBA Epic!

Description [Suggest Changes]

The Mid Mountain Trail feature classic Wasatch singletrack with lots of climbing, descending and ridge-top riding through aspen and pine forests. Be sure to give yourself a bit of time to acclimate before this ride, as the trail sits around 8,000 feet above sea level.

You can access this trail from a few different locations. A particularly nice place to begin the ride is from Park City Mountain Resort, climbing up the Spiro trail. You can also start at the bottom of Mid Mountain trail, in Deer Valley at Silver Lake Village.

Either way, you'll encounter truly extraordinary views of the area as you make your way along the Mid Mountain Trail. There's significant climbing to get up to the trail no matter where you start, but the Deer Valley access and the Spiro Trail climb are both manageable and gradual, not straight up and down.

Mid Mountain Trail is beautiful singletrack through a combination of deep forest, brief passes through open meadows, and along a ridge line. There's a bit of climbing as you make your way north, but nothing brutal. There are also some rocky sections along the way, but again, nothing too technical for an intermediate rider - just enough to keep things interesting. You'll also stay interested with periodic beautiful views out over Park City. You're also likely to see wildflowers and aspen groves along the way.

At the north end of the trail, you'll have more options to choose from. Most riders will find their way down into Canyons Resort, then ride the paved Olympic Trail back towards Park City. There are multiple singletrack options leading in Canyons - one is described in the featured ride: Mid Mountain Loop - IMBA Epic.

Hey Michael, thanks for posting that awesome trail. But maybe next time you should actually ride the trail, instead of stealing the GPX track from Besides the tracks being an exact match, this path uses the IronMan/Goldfinger Cut in the middle, not Mid-Mountain. Aug 4, 2014
