PC Hill is a quick and steady climb leading to expensive views of the northeastern side of Park City and ridgeline of Park City Mountain. Aptly named after the hillside letters commemorating Park City High School this route also leads to a dedication rock honoring many of the local contributors to some of the protected open space around Park City.
What to Expect – The route begins with a steady climb up two long switchbacks followed by a long traverse. At the next intersection stay right, the option to the left is rocky and washed out. From here the trail narrows and heads into the trees which the only shade on this route. After two more long switchbacks, the trail flattens out before beginning the final climb to the top. The trail continues to zig-zag up the southeastern side of the hill until reaching the top. There are a few side trails that have been created by hikers over the years, most will intersect back to the main trail. It is always best to stick to the main trail and avoid shortcuts, not only to keep from getting lost but also it creates a maze of trails which is not optimal for the area to flourish. The view from the top is one of the best panoramic views of Park City. The hike is best early morning or late evening due to the lack of shade along the route, it is also one of the first areas to dry out in the spring.
