Park City may be best known for its winter activities, but it also offers great recreational options all year round. Summer, in particular, has plenty of fun outdoor activities that you can enjoy even amid the pandemic. Here are some exciting activities you can safely enjoy in Park City this summer.

Go mountain biking along a mountain trail

With over 450 miles of public trails, Park City offers plenty of options for mountain biking. The city is considered a Gold-Level Ride Center by the International Mountain Biking Association, making it a haven for mountain bikers.

Choose from local favorites like the Mid Mountain Trail, Lost Prospector, Flagstaff Loop, and many more. Regardless of your skill level, you can find the perfect track to experience the exhilaration of riding in the open air.

Take a tour on horseback

If mountain biking is not for you, you can enjoy a different kind of ride in Park City. Take in the city’s breathtaking landscape on horseback. A number of companies and attractions offer guided horseback rides, such as Red Pine Adventures, Destination Sports and Adventures, Boulder Mountain Ranch, and Blue Sky Utah in nearby Wanship.

You can choose from several options of public trails or exclusive private tours, which range from hour-long rides to several hours of adventure.

Go on a zipline adventure

If you’re not afraid of heights, ziplining might just be the thrill you’re looking for. You can view the city’s scenic mountains and flowing rivers from a different perspective. A variety of zipline adventure tours await you, offered by local outfitters like Flying Eagle Zipline, Utah Olympic Park, and Zipline Utah.

Go whitewater rafting

What is summer without a little water activity? In Park City, you can get your refreshing dose of water by going river rafting on the Weber River or Provo River. It’s one of the best activities you can enjoy with a group regardless of age.

Choose from many options depending on your level of experience and the size of the group. Park City Rafting, Utah Outdoor Adventures, Destination Sports and Adventure, and All Seasons Adventures are just some of the companies offering exciting river rafting trips.

Try out fly fishing

The Weber and Provo rivers are both considered blue-ribbon fisheries, well-stocked with trout. If you prefer still waters, you can also go fishing on the reservoirs of Strawberry, Rockport, Echo, and Jordanelle. Park City guides can take you to the best spots to fish on half-day and whole-day fishing tours.

See the city on a hot air balloon

Take in the sights from the sky in a hot air balloon. Guides like Skywalker Balloon Company and Bigfoot Balloons offer trips that can carry around four to 12 passengers. You can also schedule a two-person trip if you want to (literally) elevate your date night.
