FATMAP difficulty grade
The Mid Mountain Trail roughly follows an 8,000-foot elevation contour as it traverses through the mountains above Park City.
Bench cut singletrack rolls along the mountainside, providing a surprising amount of climbing and descending for a contour trail.
While this trail is mostly smooth and flowy overall, rock gardens and root webs crop up in places—perfect for intermediate-level riders.
Where the trail crosses ski runs in the various resorts, jaw-dropping views open up of Park City below and the surrounding area. Overall, Park City's trails fall into the intermediate difficulty range, with some being a bit easier and some being a bit harder.
This holds true for Mid Mountain, but Mid Mountain is one of the older trails that was built for mountain bikers in this region.
At points, the trail shows its age with its alignment and wear, but it still remains a classic.
When riders talk about mountain biking in Park City, they'll most often mention the Wasatch Crest first...
and then Mid Mountain second.
Despite some sections that might not flow that well, this trail is still a must-ride in Park City. While many people ride Mid Mountain as a shorter loop from downtown Park City, the entire point-to-point route mapped here begins at Deer Valley and traverses all the way across the mountainside, ending near Jeremy Ranch and Interstate 80.
In order to complete this point-to-point, you’ll need to shuttle, utilize the bus system, a combination of both… or if you’re a boss, you could just pedal it as one massive loop.
