The Best Park City Hiking Trails: Blood Lake and Lackawaxen Trail
With a gain in elevation of only 465 feet, this hiking-only trail is one of our favorites, lasting just 2.8 miles round trip; we love the mountains, but hiking up can make us breathe heavier than we like! Because of the ease of the hike and the beauty of the surroundings, it can get crowded on the weekends, but vacationers enjoy the luxury of being able to hike on weekdays and may enjoy having it to themselves. The Lackawaxen Trail will take hikers to the stunning beauty of Lake Lackawaxen, where a plethora of photo opportunities abound!
Silver Lake Trail
The Silver Lake Trail, at 4.4 miles in length, isn’t the longest trail on our list, but it definitely has the highest gain in elevation, taking hikers (or joggers if you are up to the challenge) on an elevation gain of 1433 feet! With that being said, it is a relatively easy trail to complete for hikers of intermediate or expert skill levels, and the rewards for the extra effort are plentiful. Starting at the bottom of the Silver Lake chairlift and taking hikers on a voyage through a forest of aspens on the way to the top of Bald Mountain, the views from the top will thrill.
Three Divide Lakes Trail
The last of the trails we are discussing today is the Three Divide Lakes Trail, extending out 5.4 miles in length but only featuring an elevation gain of 547 feet. Dog, hiking, jogging, and backpacking friendly, this trail offers lake views and a sense of accomplishment at the trail end that will make even those who aren’t quite sure they appreciate the activity become enamored with hiking!
