Explore the most popular dogs on leash trails near Park City with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Trailhead not marked but once your on the trail you’ll be going uphill for 1 mile to a magnificent overlook. Trail is aspens/spruce and firs with very few clearings to hike through. Only saw 13 people and 6 dogs. Mostly rocky trail

I liked this trail although we ran into a number mountain bikers. Beautiful aspen forest.

This was such a beautiful hike. We were on the trail at 7 on Saturday morning and had the trail to ourselves until the way back down - lots of mountain bikers. The foliage was full, the aspens were stunning, and the wildflowers were a dream. We went all the way up to Murdoch Peak. It was a perfect moderate hike on a well travelled trail, with steady inclines and shade about 60% of the time.

It was so hot, which didn't help. It was good overall. The trail intersected dirt roads and have to watch out for the mtn bikers.

I haven’t hiked this for a month or so but I usually hike up to the bench and back so don’t get the same mileage as stated even though it is still a nice moderate hike. This is a trail for almost anytime of year except right when it is becoming slush in spring. Mostly shaded with lots of trees so beautiful in fall also. I have never seen moose on this trail but have many friends that say they have seen them on this hike. This would be a good hike for visitors to Park City adjusting to altitude as it does not involve steep climbing.

Great off leash fun for dogs but not in heat of summer unless you are willing to carry a lot of extra water. There is no water at all on this trail in the summer and as mentioned in prior review trails are mostly fully exposed. I hike and bike this frequently in fall and winter because of easy access. In the spring it can be muddy ( but not this year). I have seen moose here more than once - mostly in the winter months.

This is a steady climb and good workout, not a super long hike. Will be a bit more difficult if you’re not used to altitude because of climb but very doable. Hiked at dusk yesterday and nearly ran into a moose!! Last week I hiked up to mid mountain trail instead of summit. Very nice trail but current noise pollution from Colony construction infringes on what would be a fabulous hike. Don’t recommend hiking the mid mountain portion at this time if you enjoy solitude and nature.

Wasn't prepared for the steady incline. Thought about turning around, but knew I was near the top so kept pushing through. View from the top really nice. Had a hard time finding the trail head, which is in the middle of a cul-de-sac. Glad I did it, but probably want to try other trails before repeating.

Good view at the top of the trail.

Amazing ❤️

Awesome.

Perfect quick hike with an amazing and kind of unbelievable view at the top! I finished in 1:15

This trail totally exceeded my expectations. Quiet, lush, a nice steady climb, and only a few friendly travellers along the way. I appreciate having a secluded experience and this definitely checked that box. Gorgeous views from the top! And the nice bench up there was a pleasant surprise.

Great trail for two reasons - very few people and so can take your dogs. In fact most people we run into on trail have dogs. If you hate dogs please stay off this trail and don’t ruin it for the majority of people who love dogs

We rode along Echo Reservoir into Coalville on June 9, 2018. Most of this trail was not paved, and turned out to be harder than I expected due to that. Probably if it was paved it would have been easier. The views are really nice. Keep in mind that at least this part of the trail is sparsely shaded, so it gets HOT!

Excellent to go up Ontario Trail to top of Deer Valley (Bald Mountain) and then make it a looplby going down Silver Lake trail for views of Jordanelle. Start at mid mountain of Deer Valley.

A little tricky to find parking; make sure you obey all signs. I only saw 8 other hikers! Uphill and all big rocks. Beautiful scenery & mix of shade/sun! Loved it! The view from the top is worth the climb...

Completed in mid June 2018. I really enjoyed walking through the mountain forrest. the combination of thick trees and thick vegetation was very cool. the beginning seems to be the most difficult part out of Park City, but once you hit the switch backs and the thick trees it is not too bad. took me and my two boys about 1hr 45 minutes at a slow but study pace. I really enjoyed this trail. did not see anyone else on this trail, but could see evidence of past mountain bike use. would be hard to pass a biker on switch back trail is very narrow. we rode the ski lift back down. made the climb worth the it. ski lift is free coming down. $24 per person to go up.

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

The entrance is. It marked at all. If you follow the map it will take you there but you have to be looking for it. There is really no where to park you have to park down the street. Well worth the hike for the view up top.

Nice view at the top, plenty of flowers and birds. A bit rocky throughout but not too bad.

This trail winds up and down a hillside, partially through a wealthy neighborhood. On over half the hike the highway is visible, which was a bummer. There is a fairly short section with shade, but mostly you hike alongside shrubs and wildflowers. We saw a snake, two deer and heard many critters rustling in the bushes. My puppy loved the dog beach at the stream. We were all happy that the dogs we encountered were on leashes. The restroom and drinking fountain at the trailhead were nice.

This was a vigorous hike for me. Second one of the season and for that matter like the 4th hike I’ve ever done... it’s steep and rocky and narrow hiking path... the entrance is not well marked and we went up
Several driveways until we found the starting point. It took us about an hour to get to the city view at top... going up was the harder part but well worth it... just take it slow since it’s steep. Loved the shade from the trees and kept us cooler without the sun beating down on us.

Good trail system for beginners or kids. Smooth gravel surface, well maintained, marked with many access points. You can easily ride from Park City on the Rail Trail and find it.

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.

All up hill but the view at the top makes it all worth it!

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

Nice morning hike. We did it in 2 hours (mid 30s males, good shape). Saw kids doing hike as well. Incline entire way but great views at top. Hiking sticks at entrance to trail. Majority is through woods, so is shaded.
