Good hike overall but beware - most of it is still covered with snow. We slipped and slid a lot so be careful and wear sunscreen!! Dog had a blast!

It was unseasonably warm, but there was still a good amount of snow on Masonic and Lost Prospector... Oh... and there were a lot of fresh moose droppings and tracks!!!

Park at Deer Valley Café, walk up Mellow Mountain Road to Gambel Oak trailhead. Take that to Masonic (sign posted, just go straight) which then ends at Lost Prospector. Take that back to Mellow Mountain Road. Great 360 views of Park City area as you circle Angel Mountain.

This is a great trail to start off with! Had just a little bit of snow and the end of the Fall colors. The end is where we had our issue, as it suggests you walk along a very main road that has no sidewalk. We elected to walk through town instead, and then hop back on the trail when there finally was a sidewalk.

Drove up twice to find the Gambel Loop with no luck. Found other trails that parrell it on the app. Go up Mellow Mountain Road and it will be on the right.

Extremely hard to follow even with this app. Only saw two signs with Gambel Oak Loop listed. Got lost a couple of times and had to cross Deer Valley Rd at the end. Trail was not busy and the Aspens were colorful but wouldn’t do it again.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Good trail. As others mentioned, lots of Fall color coming in, although a bit muted due to the lack of rain, but none the less, beautiful! Trail was "dry"!! Take plenty of water, as the wind kicks up the dust and dries your mouth out. Several areas there was no shade. Encountered a few mountain bikers so the dust came up as well when they went by. They were very courteous, slowed down and alerted us as they approached. Also met several other hikers on the way. Very nice and friendly!! Only thing I would recommend is wear a good pair of hiking boots or hard soled shoes. Several areas there were rocks and tree roots to navigate thru! Oh... it is helpful to have a good "AllTrails" map (ie: the app or downloaded) to follow. Trails intertwine and are a bit confusing at times. There is signage but still a good idea. Just sayin! We also started at Aerie Dr. instead of in town. We followed "Diane Phillips" recording and work out great!

Started at Aerie Drive, picking up Little Prospector trail counterclockwise. Great trail and amazing views of Deer Valley and Park City runs - amazing Fall colors in mid-September. NOTE: when you hit Mellow Mountain Rd, skip the directions. Instead, go right up Mrlloe Mountain Rd to the U-turn and look for the Little Prospector trail sign, just past 735 street address (gated). Take this the rest of the way to avoid Deer Valley Dr and rotary.

Beautiful shade and scenary on the trail but at a certain point you need to cross a very busy street and walk through town. id recommend skipping the town part.

Easy peasy but good trail if you want to just get out and enjoy nature. Beautiful aspen trees and you can see the leaves starting to change color if you go in the fall.

HikingGreat!

I would not say this is EASY. It is moderate. The trail starts off Aerie Dr and it says Prospectors loop. Shared with bikers. We went on Wed morning in Sep and not busy at all. Great views of town from all around. Enjoyed the hike. Having the all-trail map was handy because we used it to know which direction to go!

Loved this trail as a 1st time visitor to Park City from Denver! Trail gives you amazing panorama views of both Park City and Deer Valley Ski Resorts. We hiked in September so the colors were changing and got some amazing photos! Only caution is that you will encounter mountain bikers!

Nice trail. Lots of sun starting at 2 pm on a Monday. Could do without crossing a major road and spent more time than expected on pavement but My daily for not looking at the map close enough.

Casual hike w/ some nice lookouts into the city. Make sure to double check your AllTrails when you come to intersections. Around 4-5 spots with crossings. 1/4 of it had shade.

Fun trail to take the dogs on. Went on a Monday and only ran into two or three people. Very little shade on the front end, but shaded on the back end. Fun way to see different views of the area!

Took us 40 minutes driving around trying to find the trail. It was not shaded at all and we gave up about 1/4 of the way through. Don’t recommend it.
