Park City is home to more than 450 miles of trails that are ready for you to explore via mountain bike.  Mountain biking can require a lot of gear, and it’s not always easy to pack it all for your trip.  Fortunately, Park City has many bike rental and gear outfitters that will fit you with the latest equipment for your adventure.  Having trouble deciding what to bring and what to leave at home? We put together a suggested list of items to include in your suitcase and items to rent upon arrival in Park City.

It’s commonly understood that mountain biking and beer go hand-in-hand. Who doesn’t love an ice cold one after a mountain bike ride in the summer sun?  One of Park City’s local breweries, Squatters, even named one of their beers “Full Suspension” in ode to mountain biking, noting that it “really smooths out the bumps.”  There are quite a few Park City restaurants and breweries that are conveniently located at trailheads all over town.  We have a few post-ride recommendations for after you explore one of Park City’s classic mountain bike trails.

There is a reason Park City is one of just a few locations ranked as a Gold-Level Ride Center by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA).  With over 450 miles of easy access trails, Park City is a mountain biker’s dream come true.  From flowy, cross-country single track with dynamite views, to techy downhill trails with near-endless features, there is truly something to please every rider.  That being said, here are a few classic Park City mountain bike trails that you won’t want to miss:

Park City is great for the whole family – and we do mean the whole family. Both Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort offer a variety of kid-friendly, age-appropriate activities to keep your children entertained for the duration of your trip.  Here’s a roundup of a few favorites:
