For a quick but moderately steep hike to see some fantastic colorful panoramic views, head up the Iron Canyon Trail, which starts at the top of Iron Mountain Court, and provides a wide view of Park City Mountain ski slopes.
The vast overlook of Park City is the destination, and it is well worth the climb! Aspens shade most of the trail. There are no switchbacks along this hike, so it’s a pretty straight-up strenuous climb with 860 feet of elevation gain.
Once you get to the overlook, Park City Mountain reveals itself in all its glory, and you can admire its beauty from the memorial bench with a snack and a couple of sips of water. The trail does continue past this overlook to the ridge, where it merges with the Mid-Mountain Trail.
