Description

Farm Trail is a paved path near Highway 224, in between Canyons Village and Park City Mountain Base Area.

This part of the valley is especially narrow and scenic, with Quarry Mountain rising on one side and Iron Mountain on the other.

It is the site of the McPolin Farmstead, a historic dairy farm with restored buildings from the 1920s.

You can explore them on Farm Trail as well as the surrounding scenery.

A short nature trail loop, which is not paved, leads into a forest adjacent to the fields, and the clear water of McLeod Creek runs next to Farm Trail for some distance.

The trail is about 2 miles point to point, but you can start at either end and hike any distance before turning around.

You can also make a longer loop with nearby paths in the valley, like McLeod Creek Trail on the opposite side of the highway.
