Exciting Ways To Explore Nature In Park City

As Park City is nestled high in the mountains, the summer temperatures are perfect for outdoor exploration. Some of the many ways you can enjoy nature when you visit Park City are:

  • Horseback riding - Many ranches in Park City and the surrounding areas offer horseback riding for those who want to explore the many horse-friendly mountain trails. If you aren’t overly confident in your orienteering or horse mastery, you can also have an experienced guide join your party.
  • Kayak or tube - Whether you want to float or paddle, you can find places to do both in Park City.

  • Hiking - Explore nature on foot as you follow the many hiking trails all over the mountains. Plenty of these paths can only be explored on foot, so you can see sights that aren’t available to other methods of exploration.
