5 ways to Beat the Summer Heat

Book your reservations at Old Town Guest House, Bed & Breakfast!!  Come up and get out of the heat and enjoy some of our favorites things.


Reservations can be made at www.oldtownguesthouse.com





It’s no secret that the higher in elevation you climb, the more the temperature gradient drops, thus making Park City (situated at 6,800ft base elevation) the perfect spot to escape those sweltering summer days.  On average, Park City is anywhere from 10-15 degrees cooler than Salt Lake City in the summertime. For those of you “down in the valley” (SLC), this means only a 30-minute drive separates the relationship you have with your AC unit in the sizzlin’ city and the cool, shaded, adventures that await at Park City Mountain.

1. Take Advantage of Off-Season Lodging Packages
The first step to beating the heat is to secure your lodging. The off-season typically provides low rates and currently, we’re offering a special of $169/night includes breakfast!

While we’re on the topic, for those of you looking forward to next winter, head on over to our website at www.oldtownguesthouse.com  and you’ll find a great deal on winter lodging as well.

Can_GrandSummit_Exterior_Summer (1)1.jpg

2. Fly Like The Wind
With the lodging secured and your bags dropped off, it’s time to hit the outdoors. Apply some Supergoop! Sun Protection and hit the mountain. Park City Mountain hosts a plethora of Summer Activities that test your nerves and confidence like soaring through the sky on our 2,111ft Zip-line, or screaming down the Alpine Coaster. Bring the family, Park City Mountain has an amazing NEW Kids’ Adventure Zone that will create memories your children will never forget.  For those who want to do it all, now you can with our Alpine Day Pass. Book online in advance to save 10%.


3. Explore Our Legendary Singletrack
Park City is home to over 400 miles of continuous, non-motorized biking and hiking trails throughout the community. Whether by bike or hike, the moment you step foot on the trail, your curiosity will always drive you to see what lies around the next bend. With mountainous overlooks, high alpine lakes and a hearty dose of wildlife, blooming wildflowers and more, you’ll never run out of trails to explore. Don’t have a mountain bike? No worries, we’ve got you covered here.

Wildflowers.jpg Moose1

4. Dinner on Historic Main Street
As all locals know, the best thing after riding trails all day is to come off the mountain and cruise down Main Street for a recovery beer or four. Stop in the No Name Saloon or High West Whiskey for your post-ride beverage of choice then choose from one of the hundreds of restaurants Park City has to offer. Most restaurants have outdoor seating right on Main Street allowing you to never miss a moment of the action. Catch the sunset, fill up the stomach and prepare for another day in paradise.


5. Dance the Night Away
On select Saturday’s this summer, pack a picnic, grab a glass of white and prepare to jive to the live music provided by our Summer Concert Series at Canyons Village. Join the entire Park City community as we all come together and dance underneath the sunset. Recently, The Wailers took the stage and this place was absolutely jammin’ mon.
Outdoor Summer Concerts +Summer Nights= Perfection. See our concert lineup here!

We’ve highlighted a few options for taking care of the Summer heat, however, there is so much more here at Park City to explore.

Best Trails in Park City.

For all of you staying at Old Town Guest House…  the best lodging choice in Park City…  here are some of our favorites.

If you haven’t booked your lodging…  go to www.oldtownguesthouse.com to book!!

Old Town Guest House has an amazing location,walk to Main Street and the best lodging rates in town!!



So now that the snow has melted, the mountains are calling and showing off their playful summery side. There are many ways to enjoy summer in the mountains, but we thought that we couldn’t go wrong calling out our favorite summer pastimes: hiking and mountain biking. In this specific post our focus turns to the top hiking and mountain biking loops in Park City. We favor loops because they don’t require shuttling or backtracking and you’re rewarded with a new view in both directions.

Normally combining several hiking and biking trails creates a loop, but in the Park City area you have another option, lift rides. That’s right, the ski lifts spin during summer months to carry hikers (and bikers) up and down the mountain. This opens up a lot of hiking options. I’ll give a few suggestions to get started, but the best bet is to use a map and your imagination.

You might find construction dust on a few Park City trails this summer, especially the Mid Mountain.

Mountain Bike Favorites in the Park City area:

Here are some rides designed to get riders out of the warmer lower elevations of Park City. Rides start at both Silver Lake Lodge and the Montage near Deer Valley.  Buses leave from the transit center at 00 and :30 past the hour for Silver Lake and :14 and :43 past the hour for the Montage.

Deer Valley - Montage - Mid Mountain - Team Big Bear - Flagstaff Loop - Bow Hunter, Nail Driver - Pedalers Inn.png

Advanced Ride:  Shuttle to Montage and take the Mid Mountain Trail east back towards Silver Lake Lodge. Hop on Team Big Bear and get ready for a nice little technical gut punch. Advanced riders can get to the top of Big Bear in about 9-14 minutes. Intermediate riders will take a bit longer. Once you’ve reached the top of Big Bear, continue heading up to Flagstaff Loop (Take the Left Turn). Enjoy the high mountain meadows filled with Utah wildflowers and make your way up to Bow Hunter.  Take Bow Hunter Towards the biggest peak on the horizon, Mount Timpanogos and enjoy some huge alpine views. You’ll also see some incredible views of the Jordanelle Reservoir in the most technical section of the trail. Once you’ve completed the loop of Bow Hunter you’ll be at the intersection of Deer Valley’s flow trail Nail Driver and Homeward Bound. Nail Driver has been totally reworked so if you’ve ridden it in the past and didn’t enjoy it, be sure to give it another shot. Huge berms and high speed ripping are most certainly this trails highlights!

Deer Crest Downhill – 

Either take the free shuttle at the Main Street Transit Center at 0:00 or 0:30 past the hour. Get off at the first stop. Silver Lake Lodge. Option two would be to purchase a Deer Valley single day lift ticket and ride chairlifts all day. If option two works for you,  start at the Snow Park Base Area and take the Silver Lake Express to Silver Lake Lodge. From there ask any of the Deer Valley Lifties how to access the Deer Crest Trail and they will certainly point you in the right direction. There is a short little up hill climb in order to access the down hill but this trail is certainly rideable for intermediate riders and some beginners. The trail is fast and fun with very little peddling involved. Once you’ve made it to the second part of the down hill you’ll great views of Park City and the St. Regis Hotel.  It’s a Park City classic! A must ride!

BONUS – If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, try mountain biking under the stars. And for all of you ladies out there, check out our Girl’s Guide to Mountain Biking.


Park City Mountain Resort

Hiking Loop Favorites:

Armstrong/Spiro Loop – Combine two popular trails into a scenic loop that will give you a nice workout. This trail is comprised of nicely packed dirt and bikers only travel uphill on the Armstrong section. As you hike, orient yourself to the many ski runs you’ll cross. It’s amazing how different the terrain looks in the summer! Feeling hungry? Give your legs a break and grab a bite in Silver Star Cafe at Silver Star at Park City.

Distance: 9.0 miles Elevation Gain: 1519 feet

Upper and Lower Jenni’s Trail and Jenni’s/GMG Loop – Jenni’s Trail offers many options for hiking PCMR’s beautiful terrain. The 4.1-mile (one way) trail begins at the base of the mountain, but you can create a loop using either the Pay Day or Town lifts to ride up the mountain and then hike downhill back to the base. By riding up on a lift you get spectacular views without the uphill hike.

If you prefer a shorter hike, create a loop by hiking up Lower Jenni’s until you reach the Crescent Mine Grade, and then hiking back down to the base. This is a short but pretty hike. It is popular however so don’t expect solitude.

Upper and Lower Jenni’s: Distance 4.1 Elevation (one way) Gain – 698 feet

Jenni’s/CMG Loop: Distance – 2.3 miles Elevation Gain – 502 feet

Mid Mountain Trail – This classic Park City area trail spans over 20 miles of beautiful landscapes, but don’t worry, you can hike as much or little of the trail as you like. While we’ve placed it under PCMR, it traverses three ski resorts. Access the Mid Mountain Trail using the Spiro Trail for a 3.2-mile gradual climb. The elevation here is near 8,200 feet, so take your time and hydrate well. The Mid Mountain Trail is sometimes called the 8,000-foot Trail and features wildflowers and views along the way.

Distance: Up to 20.2 miles Elevation Gain: Varies by section

Deer Valley Resort

Hiking Loop Favorites:

Silver Lake/Ontario Loop – This is a great loop if you want a peaceful hike because it’s designated “foot-traffic only” which means no bikes zooming past. Begin at the Silver Lake base area, hiking uphill until you reach the top of Bald Mountain. From here, follow signs to the Ontario Canyon trail and hike back to the Silver Lake base area. Keep your eyes open for old mining equipment along the way. You’ll also pass the snowmaking pond. Don’t feel like hiking all the way around? Ride the lift back to the base! Deer Valley only charges for uphill rides. Expect to see aspen, views of Jordanelle Reservoir, flowers, and wildlife on this hike. Here is a handy map of Deer Valley’s summer trails.

Distance: 3.8 miles  Elevation Gain: 1027 feet

Sultan Out and Back Trail – Begin this hike at the Silver Lake Village area and hike east. You’ll pass a number of ski runs and large aspen groves before dropping into a canyon. Pack a lunch to enjoy at the scenic picnic area before returning on the same trail. If you feel adventurous, return via the Sultan Loop by continuing downhill to the Sultan Connection (a wide dirt trail) back toward the Village. Expect to see pretty views, flowers, and wildlife including deer and marmot on this hike.

Distance: 2.8 miles Elevation Gain: 442 feet

Guided Historical Hikes – These hikes last three to four hours, cover moderately strenuous terrain, are typically less than six miles and highlight the area’s mining history. Participants meet near the base of Sterling Express chairlift, located mid-mountain at Silver Lake Lodge at 9:30 am. The guided hikes are scheduled on June 21, July 19, August 16, September 20, and October 18, 2015 (weather and conditions permitting).

Distance and Elevation Gain Varies

Canyons Resort

Hiking Loop Favorites:

Tombstone – The varied environments and shaded trail make this hike a winner. Begin by riding the gondola to the Red Pine Lodge. From here, hike up the mountain to the Tombstone lift where you’ll find stunner views. Grab lunch at the Red Pine before heading back down to the base.

Distance: 3.2 miles Elevation Gain: 600 feet

Ambush/Short Swing/Holly’s Loop – Like I said before, I love a loop hike, and here is one I found at Canyons. From the base, hike up the Ambush Trail to Short Swing which runs through a scenic section of the mountain. From Short Swing, hike down Holly’s which is a reasonably steep trail. Watch for cyclists along the way. Although hikers have the right away, it’s hard for bikers to stop on a downhill so be kind and let them pass. I haven’t found a good estimate of the distance and elevation for this hike. Visit the Canyons website for more information.

Mid Mountain Trail – Yes, the same trail I mentioned before, but a different section. Ride the gondola up the mountain to begin your hike at 8000 feet. In the summer, the high elevation of this trail offers a reprieve from the heat. Additionally there are many options for creating loops etc using the intersecting trails. The Wasatch Ridge Crest spur off of the Mid Mountain is a strenuous option that offers shade and pretty views.

#1 Lodging Special for Tour of Utah!!

Stay at Old Town Guest House….  Park City’s only Bed & Breakfast.  Mention Tour of Utah and get a 10% DISCOUNT on your lodging total.  Walk the Main Street to watch this Stage.


Sunday, Aug 07

  • Total Distance
    78 Miles
  • Elevation Gain
    7,883 Ft
  • Start 12:15 PM
  • Estimated Finish 3:30 PM
  • Start Address: 250 Main St, Park City

Stage Overview:

Just say “Empire Pass” to a veteran of the Tour of Utah—then watch their face twist to an expression of excruciating anguish. Few climbs in the world have a reputation similar to Empire Pass. Topping out at over 9000ft, with rough pavement, average grades of 10% and pitches reaching over 20%, Empire Pass is quite simply the toughest climb raced in the United States. But this stage isn’t won on the summit. The winner needs a phenomenal ascent up Empire that’s followed by an equally brave descent down through the technically challenging Deer Valley Resort and into Park City. New this year will be a quick tour through downtown Park City, where our stage winner will need to save a little something special for the stage’s finish line; now positioned—after one last grinding climb—at the top of Main Street.

One of the most beautiful things about the sport of mountain biking is the dedication of clusters of mountain bikers spread around the planet who are constantly building newer and better mountain bike trails for travel-thirsty riders to explore and enjoy. Over the years we’ve drawn on our massive mountain bike trail database, the expertise of our widespread editorial team, survey data from our millions of readers (you), and rumors that our staff has collected from all corners of the nation, in order to assemble lists of the Top 10 Mountain Bike Destinations in North America and the Top 10 Mountain Bike Cities in North America. In the intervening three years since we published those first top 10 lists, the landscape of mountain biking in the United States has changed. Many top-level destinations have continued to build new and better trails, expanding their trail networks even more. Some destinations that didn’t make the cut before have built out astronomical amounts of new singletrack, subsequently building their national profile. And still other destinations have built very few or absolutely no new trails, and have fallen by the wayside as a result.

This latest list of the best mountain bike destinations factors in the changes that have swept the nation in the past three years. Also, you’ll note that we’ve narrowed the focus of this list to just the USA. So without further ado, here are the current top 10 best mountain bike destinations in the USA:

Moab, Utah

Slickrock trail. Photo: Erik Proano

Slickrock trail. Photo: Erik Proano

While Moab is one of the oldest mountain bike destinations on the planet, they refuse to rest on their laurels with the decades-old trails that originally put them on the map. Instead, Moab continues to build more and more bike-legal singletrack, at a rate of about 30 miles per year. And the new trails, quite honestly, are way better than the original classics!

While Moab’s growth in recent years has been incredible, the same iconic factors from 30 years ago are the primary ones that make it memorable today: world-famous slickrock riding, incredible desert views, a great town with excellent bike shops and shuttles, and miles upon miles of trails! It’s no wonder that we awarded Moab the distinctive honor of Mountain Bike Capital of the United States!

Must-ride trails in Moab include The Whole Enchilada, Captain Ahab, and the iconic Slickrock.

Crested Butte, Colorado

Trail 401. Photo: Magua X

Trail 401. Photo: Magua X

Crested Butte is famous as one of the two birthplaces of the sport of mountain biking, but if you compare the current mountain bike trail access in Crested Butte, Colorado to that of Marin County, California… well, there just isn’t a comparison. Crested Butte boasts hundreds of miles of the most picturesque high-alpine trails anywhere, all surrounding a quaint western mountain town with great food and beer.

While Crested Butte hasn’t expanded their trail system as much as other destinations on this list over the past three years, their trail network continues to grow, and regardless of how slow the growth may be, the town currently claims to have over 750 miles of trails. It’d take decades for most destinations to even come close to that number!

Must-ride trails include Trail 401, Doctor Park, and Reno/Flag/Bear/Deadman’s.

Lake Tahoe, California and Nevada

Location: Flume Trail, Nevada From: “Off the Beaten Path” Rider: Anthony Cupaiuolo (and Emmie) Photographer: David Braun

Lake Tahoe is an expansive region that includes the towns of South Lake Tahoe, CA; Incline Village, NV; and Tahoe City, CA; which dot the shores of the largest alpine lake in North America, and one of the clearest lakes in the world. This entire region is renowned for its mountain biking and is stitched together into a cohesive destination by the Tahoe Rim Trail.

While Tahoe has long been known as a mountain bike destination, ongoing trail developments, primarily around South Lake Tahoe, have really pushed the region over the top into a truly world-class riding destination. There’s more trail riding than you can shake a stick at, and even if downhilling is your thang, Northstar Resort has you covered.

The restaurants and bike shops in Tahoe never seem to end, and you can find at least six breweries in the region.

Must-ride trails include the Tahoe Rim Trail, Flume Trail, and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

Park City, Utah

Wasatch Crest Trail. Rider: Greg Heil. Photo: Luke F.

Wasatch Crest Trail. Rider: Greg Heil. Photo: Luke F.

One of Park City’s many claims to fame is being the first-ever IMBA Gold-Level Ride Center. While other gold-level ride centers have joined the ranks over the years, Park City will always be the first. This gold-level status is thanks in part to an absolutely massive network of trails that’s all accessible from downtown. Most of these trails are classic trail riding or enduro mountain biking territory, but you can get a lift bump in several different places with a ticket. If it’s true downhill that you desire, the Canyons and Deer Valley resorts have gotcha covered!

On top of the epic network that has existed for quite sometime, Park City continues to expand its network both around town, and with private resorts like Deer Valley also working diligently to build more and more singletrack.

Must-ride trails include the Wasatch Crest Trail, Mid-Mountain Trail, and Park City Mountain Resort / Old Town Area.

Wydaho, Wyoming and Idaho

Cache Creek to Game Creek Trail. Photo: justin70

Cache Creek to Game Creek Trail. Photo: justin70

The Wydaho region encompasses Jackson, Wyoming; Jackson Hole Resort, Wyoming; Victor, Idaho; Driggs, Idaho; and Grand Targhee Resort, Wyoming. Jackson Hole and the surrounding Teton mountains have long been known as a hotbed for some of the best downhill skiing–especially in the backcountry–in the nation, if not the world. The mountains are massive and steep, and the snow is deep.

Historically, summer tourism in the region has revolved around Jackson’s proximity to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, but in just the last handful of years mountain biking has blown up on the Wydaho scene. While there were always decent big-mountain rides to be had, trail development has taken off closer to the town of Jackson. Historically-illegal trails on Teton Pass were adopted into the trail system, and new trails were built. Jackson Hole has also improved its bike park. But most notably, Grand Targhee Resort has developed an incredible array of downhill mountain bike trails, cross country trails, winter fat biking trails–basically, any sort of two-wheeled singletrack route you can imagine. Add all of this epic singletrack to the incredible views of the Tetons, the abundance of majestic wildlife, and the already-existing restaurant and lodging infrastructure, and not including Wydaho on this list in 2016 would be a massive oversight.

Must-ride trails include Grand Targhee Resort, Mill Creek, Cache Creek to Game Creek, and the Teton Pass Downhill Trails.
