day hike park city environs

Hike from the base of Park City Mountain Resort up to the Wasatch Crest Trail via Spiro Trail and Thaynes Canyon. Pass Shadow Lake and numerous historic mine structures along the way. Fall colors in Park City should be peaking around this time. Final ascent to crest will be via PineCone Ridge. We will summit three peaks in the area -- Scotts Peak, Tri-County Peak, and Jupiter Hill. Portions of this hike are on trails that are also used by mountain bikers. If the group is tired of hiking the last 1.5 miles, there is an option to downride the free Town Lift Chair. We can carpool or the free Park City Transit will take us from the Jeremy Ranch park-n-ride to PCMR and back. Return to the park-n-ride should be before 6 if the shuttle is used, or sooner if we carpool.
