For the Record: What is your favorite mud season activity?
Each week, The Park Record asks For the Record, encouraging residents and visitors to weigh in on a topic of interest. This week, mud season is in full swing in Park City. This time of year, the ski resorts have closed, but trails and other outdoor activities may still be too “muddy” to use and Parkites are stuck with relatively few outdoor recreation options.
What’s your go-to mud season activity? Comment with your own answer below, or consider sending a letter to the editor.

I go hiking. I’m headed to the desert this weekend, but mostly I hike on the other side along the Wasatch Front. Anything city-side is decent (this time of year).
Libby Ellis, Salt Lake City
I go mountain biking. Right now, just in the (Salt Lake) foothills, it’s all really nice right now and mostly dry.
Olivia Tabah, Snyderville
I like to get out of Park City during mud season, down to Moab. I usually try to get back on my mountain bike or road bike and stay active while it’s nice out.

Going to Main Street and finding parking. I did that this morning, I went to Atticus and parked right there for free and the first spot was open. Pulled this (car) right in there.

I’m a cyclist so a bunch of road cycling, and waiting for the trails to open. Round Valley’s been good lately. (Road cycling) is better this early in the season with less traffic.
