Deer Valley Resort's Silver Lake Trail is a moderate hiking trail designated as a foot-traffic only, so you’re guaranteed more tranquility as you hike through the peaceful landscape. This trail is perfect during the summer when wildflowers bloom and fall when the aspens begin to turn their golden hue. The path is a gorgeous hike that is well marked and starts at the bottom of the Deer Valley Silver Lake chairlift and ends at the top of Bald Mountain with picturesque cliffs on one side and a bird’s eye views the Heber Valley on the other.
When you start to hike up, you will navigate a narrow trail of dense trees. Climbing higher, you will pop in and out of aspen groves, and cross over ski runs and under lift lines, the scenery is on display as it opens up to panoramic views of the Jordanelle Reservoir. The last 600 feet of elevation is a steep push, but you will continue to enjoy the 360-degree views of Park City and beyond once at the top.
