Deer Valley offers 70 miles of lift serviced bike trails and general access to over 400 miles of flowing singletrack. Rated one of the top five best bike parks in the Rocky Mountains, Deer Valley sells $40 day passes for adults, which give riders 10 a.m.–5 p.m. service on three different chairlifts. The Homeward Bound trail hosts a number of manmade stunts and features for skilled bikers, but if you’re looking for a simple joyride, try Naildriver.

Here is a great hike up Spiro

I was stoked to get my hiking shoes and Camelbak out of storage to present you with a fun, short intermediate hike involving Spiro, one of Park City’s most popular trails.

TrailMap Revisions

Trails: Jenni’s Trail, Crescent Mine Grade, Eagle, Spiro and Silver Spur

Length: 3.8 miles
Duration: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Difficulty: Intermediate
You’ll need: Water

To begin this hike, you’ll access Jenni’s Trail from the Park City Mountain Resort Base Area and First Time Face. This portion of Jenni’s is uphill-only, so make sure you take this trail the way I’m describing it and not backwards. Jenni’s Trail was cut two years ago, and as it’s pretty new, it’s still pretty wide and easy navigate. Jenni’s zigzags through the 3 Kings terrain park, and since it’s still pretty early in the summer, there are several mounds of snow where the jumps were located all winter. One of the larger mounds you’ll come across is actually right in the center of the trail. Just hike up and around the snow, and you’ll find Jenni’s again next to the trees on the other side of the run.

The first trail crossing you’ll come to is Crescent Mine Grade (CMG), just after you get past the First Time Lift. Hang a right! It’s a pretty sharp turn (maybe 30 degrees). From here, you’ll continue a steady grade uphill, hiking past the Eagle Chairlift and its midstation. The next trail intersection is another sharp turn onto Eagle. From Eagle on, you’ll be hiking downhill. Follow Eagle until it deadends into Spiro. While descending Spiro, you’ll come across a lot of mountain bikers heading downhill. Be aware of them, and use your hiking manners and share the trail.

Eventually, Spiro ends into a fork: Silver Spur and “To Armstrong”. Make sure you take the right and slight uphill to Silver Spur. This will take you right back to the 3 Kings park, Eagle Superpipe and Base Area. Later in the summer, Silver Spur cuts through the Superpipe. Right now, the pipe walls are still big piles of snow. I’d recommend taking the dirt road when it crosses Silver Spur before you reach the pipe to avoid the snow. The road will take you back to the Main Base Area.

This loop is perfect hike from Old Town Guest House!!
