Park City, Utah
The Mid Mountain Trails 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 start the ride from a few different locations on the Mid Mountain loop. A particularly nice place to begin the ride is at Silver Lake at Deer Valley Resort. You will encounter truly extraordinary views of the area as you make your way around the Mid Mountain loop.
From Deer Valley, climb the Spiro Trail and ascend some moderate rocky sections. After a brief stint on the Powerline Trail you will be on the Mid Mountain loop. Both intermediate and advanced riders will find this trail challenging and exciting. It offers amazing views and lots of high-altitude climbing. Summer brings beautiful wildflowers and fall displays aspens in brilliant color. Bottom line: this ride is spectacular.
