When the summer heat begins to cool down, and the leaves start to change, fall provides a new set of activities and events for people around Park City. It’s the perfect time to take one last hike, one last swim in the lake, or sport your favorite warm-weather outfit before the cold weather comes in.
From enjoying your favorite hike to visiting some of the best warm-weather attractions around the area before the snow hits, we’ve compiled a list of things we think you should check out.
See the Leaves Change During a Hike
The only thing better than hiking in tree paradise is walking in tree paradise during autumn, especially in the beautiful town of Park City. With over 400 miles of trails — many of them right in town — there’s an excellent hike for every skill level.
Try the Silver Lake trail for aspens and pines or Iron Mountain for the scenic views. Many mountain biking trails are also available in the area, from beginner trails to those challenging downhill tracks that get your blood pumping.
Get your car out of the garage and bring the family for a fun, scenic drive around the city. For those not looking to burn a sweat but still want to experience the full beauty of the area, we recommend taking one of the many scenic drives around Park City.
A few drives we recommend are checking out the aspens near Guardsman Pass or taking the two-lane highway up to Mirror Lake, where the leaves will be in full effect, and the evergreens will be a sight to behold.
Take a Trip to the Kimball Arts Center
Started in an art enthusiast’s garage, this pillar of the Park City community features a wide variety of contemporary art — for free! Check out an exhibit, then engage with the community if you wish for a bit of art talk. Also, those interested in sharpening their artistic ability should look into the Center’s many art classes that take place year-round.
Another can’t miss event in August is the Kimball Arts Festival, happening from August 6-8, 2021 this year. The Park City Kimball Arts Festival is not only one of the top-ranked art festivals in the country; it’s also the Center’s largest fundraiser. This three-day event allows the center to continue and further their mission of providing arts access, education, engagement, and experience to everyone, all year long.
Park City Mountain Resort
Stop by for one of their many scheduled events or concerts this year, or just stop by to have a meal and try some warm-weather activities. A trip to Park City’s Mountain Village is a must for all outdoor enthusiasts for those that haven’t yet been.
Coast on the Alpine Coaster — a raised sled track — sled down the Alpine Slide, zip down the ziplines, and don’t forget to pan for gems.
Take a shot at Park City’s newest golf course, Canyons Golf Course. Surrounded by serene rolling hills and blue mountain skies, it’s the perfect place to sharpen your game or try golfing for the first time.
Another great option is Park City Golf Club. A mountain-style course on rolling terrain with many trees, the course has an elevation of 6,700 feet that can add distance to shots, and it is also convenient during hotter months since it is about 10 to 15 degrees cooler than other golf courses. This course is quite picturesque, with meandering streams and lakes and abundant natural flora and fauna.
Through all of these different experiences, we are sure you and your family can find something fun to do in Park City this fall. Autumn is also the perfect time to move to the area. Get settled this year before the winter rush hits!
