The Poison Creek Trail travels along the east side of City Park and into a historical area of Park City, originally a mining town. On this urban pathway, trail-goers will pass an eclectic mix of athletic fields, sculptures, murals in one of several short tunnels, residences and historical sites. The route also provides access to many shops and restaurants, and connects to the 28-mile Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail State Park at its northern end.

This is a nice paved trail that goes along Poison Creek. There’s a spur (if you could call it that) that runs parallel to the trail and joins back up shortly. It goes to a couple shoe trees which is cool. The trail also goes past murals, sculptures, and a sound garden. I went to the end and back about halfway before branching off toward Main Street.

Great path for a Sunday afternoon stroll on the backside of town. My girls (teenagers) really enjoyed the trickling stream with red algae, murals and sculptures and “sound garden.” And we ended up stopping at the park for a pickup game of sand volleyball. Runs parallel to Deer Valley Dr. so there can be a fair amount of traffic noise. Most other patrons were polite but some skaters, bikers whiz by without calling out.
