What’s There To Do This Fall in Park City? Plenty!


Fall in Park City | August 15, 2020

Fall in Park City looks a little different this year. We may be missing some of the festivals and gatherings we’ve attended in the past, there’s still plenty of reasons to visit Park City in the fall!

As a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, Park City never fails to delight no matter what season you choose to visit. And with our current health concerns, you can feel safe and secure enjoying our stunning mountain retreat with easy social distancing from others. There’s always something to do, somewhere to go, and new experiences to be cherished.

Consider some of these options: 

Take a Hike! 

No, seriously. With more than 400 miles of hiking trails in and around Park City, you’re sure to find your perfect fit, whether you’re a novice or an advanced hiker. 

Wind your way through landscapes ranging from meadows to mountains to rivers and keep your eye out for a variety of local wildlife. Just remember to enjoy them from a distance – no selfies, please!

Mountain Biking

Looking for something a little more daredevil-ish than a simple hike? How about a mountain bike ride?

You might be surprised to learn that Park Çity is a mountain biking destination as well as a skiing destination, but it is! 

With a minimum of a half-dozen mountain biking trails in the area, you’ll no doubt find your perfect balance of exercise and scenery to enjoy. 

Fishing

While you may not think of Park City as a premier fishing destination, there’s some pretty darn good blue-ribbon fly-fishing on both the Provo and Weber Rivers. Prefer to get out of the streams and eddies? Check out the still water fly fishing on the Strawberry, Echo, Rockport, and Jordanelle reservoirs. 

Hot Air Ballooning

What better way to see the entire Park City landscape than from within the safety of a hot-air balloon’s basket? Prepare for an awe-inspiring journey as you take in the oranges, yellows, and reds of surrounding fall foliage. Make sure to have that camera ready!

While most hot-air balloons accommodate anywhere from 4-10 guests, you can reserve a 2-person excursion with a 1-person pilot to maximize your safety.

Outdoor Dining

While it may be a while until we all feel safe about indoor dining again, we can certainly consider an outdoor meal (and in Park City, that may well come with a great view, at no extra charge!)

What could be better than sitting in the crisp fall air, with a favorite beverage and great company, while you enjoy a delicious meal from one of your favorite (or new favorite) Park City restaurants. 

A few suggestions: 

Riverhorse on Main

The Bridge Cafe and Grill

Shabu

Main Street Pizza and Noodle

Flanagan’s on Main

Scenic Drives

Last, but by no means least, hop in the car and take a scenic country drive! You won’t find more beautiful country than in our little corner of heaven. Here are some suggestions to get you started: 

Guardsman Pass

Wolf Creek Highway Pass

Weber Canyon

Bridal Veil Falls Trail

So, while we’re experiencing our favorite destinations in a new way these days, that doesn’t mean we can’t still get the most out of every day of vacation. You can still avoid the crowds, travel just with your own quaranteam and have a picture perfect vacation in Park City.

We look forward to welcoming you into one of our Covid-clean and safe rental homes and condominiums. As always, if we can help in any way, simply ask. We love to see our guests happy!
