Book Details

Park City is A Walker’s Paradise

You don’t need skis, a bicycle, or even hiking boots to enjoy Park City’s magnificent mountain scenery or the vibrant history of this bawdy old western mining town. A Walker’s Guide to Park City describes 30 walking routes through urban and wild landscapes. You’ll find maps and directions for exploring spectacular alpine terrain, a century and a half of local Americana, and the ever-evolving culture of a community that has morphed into one of the world’s best-loved travel destinations. Most of these walks are less than 4 miles (6.4 km) in length and are readily accessible by public transportation. Even if you think you know Park City well, you’ll never really know it until you walk it. Are you fit enough to amble around in these mountains? Are you wearing the right kind of shoes? What should you do if you sprain an ankle on the trail? This guidebook also offers practical information about fitness, feet, and footwear from the perspective of a seasoned physician.
