Did we mention that Park City was awarded the first title of Gold Level Ride Center in 2011 by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA)? Well, in keeping with that tradition, Park City has announced yet another new hiking and biking trail to enjoy this summer. Get all the details on the following blog post by Park City Mountain Resort.
Trailblazer Tuesday: Jenni's Trail
Posted by Samantha on August 28, 2012
You might remember that a few months ago, Park City was named the world's first Gold Level Ride Center by the International Mountain Biking Association. That basically translates to, "Park City has a killer trail system." Of course us Parkites have always thought that, but it's great to be recognized by outsiders.
One of the best characteristics of our trail system is that every year, it is constantly improving with new trails. To contribute to this ever-diversifying trail system, Park City Mountain Resort has been working on cutting a new trail that will allow hikers and bikers to easily trek from the top of PayDay to the base area (or vice versa!), without needing to use an access road.
So without further ado, I present Jenni's Trail! The marketing team at Park City Mountain Resort went on a preliminary hike of Jenni's Trail to preview this new one for you, so we hope you enjoy our adventure and get out there to do it yourself when it officially opens Labor Day Weekend.
Trail: Jenni's Trail
Duration: 4.7 miles total, but we only hiked the first 2.5 miles to PayDay Mid Station
Don't forget: Water, camera and a ticket for the ZipRiderTM
Jenni's Trail starts off of the path under the Flying Eagle and ZipRiderTM. It's pretty difficult to miss once you get to First Time face, since it is a newly cut trail. From here, the trail winds up the mountain, through the aspens and across ski runs. You'll hit Crescent Mine Grade, where you'll continue straight through that intersection. Turning left or right will put you on CMG. (Bad idea. Trek CMG some other time!)
