Perfect hike with great views of the reservoir near the top. Took the lift to Stein Erikson back.

This trail is usually done on a mountain bike, and the actual Spiro section I think is a downhill only portion, at least for mountain bikers, and it’s FAST! I would double check with the Park City Mountain map first before hiking up Spiro. Typically people will ride up Armstrong and use mid-mountain to crossover to Spiro and ride Spiro down.

Beautiful day.
Alas, this did not feel like a hiking trail: overrun with trail bikes. All polite but hike very interrupted and unpleasant

RATTLESNAKE SIGHTING: Just a warning so you’re on the lookout, on Saturday, May 26, we encountered a rattlesnake about a mile from the entrance on our way back from our hike. It was about 3 1/2’ long. We were able to locate a long branch to tap the ground around him to get him to move off the path and into the grass, but he was not happy and it took some tapping to get him to move. His rattler was still going and on the trail as we ran by. Great hike so rating it a 4, but not sure we’ll be back to it soon after seeing that - we understand we were in his space, but still scary to see.

Overall very pleasant! Terrain is uneven in parts due to horse prints and hardened mud. Otherwise, it is a beautiful hike along the reservoir. Little bit of climbing but generally easy.

Great day hike - headed up the mtn from large ski resort parking lot and took small trail to the right through an large grassy area. Once at the trail I continued up the mtn. It’s a bit sketchy when you get to where this trail merges into Middle Mtn and then later into Armstrong. Glad I had this app so I could confirm I was on right trail.

It was a nice trail but after about 2.5 hours on it, I'm a little unsure if I hiked the actual trail. The markers could be a lot better

Great views. Well maintained. Lots of mountain bikes but no issues with being able to step out of track

Awesome trail! The route here has you go from Armstrong to Mid-mountain to Spiro trail, which is about a 9 mile loop. Great hiking, but be prepared for (1) lots of dirt, and (2) lots of mountain bikers. Breathtaking views, though, and most of the hike is in the shade.

great hike and view of the area around Jordanelle reservoir. if the deer valley resort lift is open, you can hike up to the top and then take the lift back down to the resort for free .. and enjoy the ride

I loved the view! When you reach the top of it you can see for mile and mile and it's really nice. The only problem was finding the trail when you first start but just look around and from there it is a blast.

Snowshoeing was fun, but could not complete the trail due to downed trees.

I went the wrong way at first because the Northface race was happening but once I got back on track it was awesome! Great views with lookout points and benches. Beautiful fall colors! I didn't do the whole trail and ended up using the Spiro Connector to take Dawn's Trail.

A great hike with incredible views. We made a loop of it with Silver Lake up to the summit and Ontario Canyon down. This was a little over two hours for us, but we weren't in a hurry. If doing a loop, I recommend Silver Lake up. It is steeper and with loose rock. Both trails begin near the bottom of the Sterling Express lift and were generally well marked.

Views towards the top of the Silver Lake trail were the most breathtaking we've seen in our Park City hikes.

The lift stopped running daily September 5. So if you're planning on a free lift down (like some other comments) instead of hiking down, check that it's running.

Spiro is a beautiful trail. Going up, the downward bike traffic is a little annoying. But the views are beautiful, particularly at higher elevations.

There is no parking at the trail head and finding parking is not obvious. Park as if you were going to the Silver Star Cafe. The trail head is just beyond the cafe and the Silver Star lift, on your right.

Hike up and take the lift down. Well marked and maintained trail. Not difficult. A very pleasant hike. It took me about 40 minutes to reach the top. Wear a hat and sunscreen, and take water.

Great trail. It was suggested by Silver Star Rental that we take Arrowhead to avoid heavy bike traffic and then pick up Spiro. Which we did, however, we saw limited bikes due to being a Monday we guessed. Going the suggested way we logged in about 2-3 more miles. No bugs which was great, had the pleasure of many birds. A trail well worth it.

A heart pounding hike. The hike will take you through the forest and out in the direct sun on your way up the mountain. And there are no bike allowed on this trail. Some views especially at the top. Overall a nice hike, but for me I like some more variety especially running water. But in this area, this is about as good as it gets. Oh, and the best part is the free ride down on the chair lift. Ahh, nice views and relaxing.

Visited mid-October. Nicely manicured trail - single wide most of the time. Hiked 2.5 miles in. All nearly up hill. I'm in decent shape, but used to 1,000ft altitude, so I did get a little winded, but it felt really good. Encountered a few friendly magpie along the way. Several uphill & downhill bikers whom were very friendly and courteous. Forests changed from pine to oak to birch...lots of vistas and a couple of benches to rest/enjoy the wonderful views of PC. Definitely worth the hike if you'd like to see a little of PC, but are not familiar with the area.
