Hike from Park City to Big Cottonwood Canyon and Beyond

Park City is also a great starting point for hikes into the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains and over to nearby Big Cottonwood Canyon. Whatever hike you want to do, our guides can help you select and organize the perfect outing. Go for something easy that winds through town so you can stop and enjoy a coffee or opt for a more scenic hike with beautiful vistas that give you an excuse to pause and catch your breath. Put yourself to the test with a rigorous hike to the top of one of our local peaks. No matter what your hiking style, we have you covered.

Hiking Tips & Essentials

Hiking season around Park City runs from mid-April to around the beginning of November. Depending on the season and location of the hike, you will be wise to plan on bringing lightweight hiking boots, layered clothing, a hat, a daypack, a camera, sunscreen, and water. One of the fastest ways to get into trouble in our mountains is to become dehydrated. The temperature may be cool, but you can still lose a half quart per hour. On hot days, make that a full quart.
