  • Rail Trail – The trail is cinder-and-dirt double-track, and as you’d guess from its history as a railroad line, the elevation change is slow and the curves are gentle. There’s a wide variety of terrain along the 30 miles, ranging from Echo Reservoir, where rough rock, juniper, and sunflowers prevail, to the lush green farmland along the Weber River, to the sage and bitterbrush hills climbing to Park City. Learn more
