Basin Recreation guided trail hikes

Are you ready to see a different side of the Park City/ Snyderville Basin area? Needing some exercise but are intimidated by our trails and/ or some of the people on them? Basin Recreation will be offering guided hikes on our vast trail system. Basin Recreation staff will instruct participants on proper trail etiquette, safety issues and trail knowledge as well as take the group on a hike. Kids are welcome but no strollers please. We are also asking that participants leave the dogs at home for these hikes. Although we allow leashed pets on our trails, we ask they stay home for the group setting.

Basin Recreation is planning hikes two times a month, some on our most common trails and others on our little known hideaways. This service is free and a great opportunity to meet some people, find some new trails and get some exercise. For the list of dates and hiking trails visit
