The chips are down, the trail is great


The Nature Trail off the McPolin Farm Trail has been recently renovated. A new surface layer of wood chips courtesy of the PCFD Wood Chipper program and five new, somewhat over-engineered bridges installed over the runoff channels make for a delightful experience. Thank you, Mountain Trails, sponsors and volunteers. Rumor control has it that a bench, hopefully with backrest, is in our future somewhere along this trail. The trail is great. Get out and enjoy the Farm with us.

Historic Home Tour is more popular than ever

Recommended Stories For You


A hearty thank you to everyone who supported this year’s Historic Home Tour. Twelve historic homes and two historic churches were opened to the public on June 15 during our 16th Annual Historic Home Tour and the event proved more popular than ever!

We would like to thank our extraordinary sponsors. The success of this event is the result of their generous support. A special thanks to our presenting sponsors, Jones Waldo and Shane Herbert. Also to Java Cow, Marcie Davis, Zoom Restaurant, which sponsored the post-tour reception, and to all the locals and businesses that sponsored each historic house.

A special thank you to everyone who gave so generously of their time and talents to make this year’s tour and history weekend memorable: Park City’s finest chefs from Shabu, Blind Dog, Riverhorse on Main, High West Distillery, Deer Valley and Café Terigo, the homeowners who generously opened their homes both on Wednesday night and Saturday, our more than 60 volunteers who helped the event go smoothly, and those who attended a dinner or walked the tour (you know who you are).

The Park City Historical Society & Museum is dedicated to preserving, protecting and promoting Park City’s history and heritage. Thanks for a successful event that will help us reach our goals!

Speed limit on Daly Avenue is 20 mph


As I find myself yelling at mountain bikers to slow down on Daly Avenue multiple times a day, I figured I would take a moment to compose a written reminder.

The speed limit is 20 miles per hour, as indicated at the bottom of the dirt road just before reaching the neighborhood, and applies to bikers as well. There are children and dogs on our street, and it would be nice if the bikers could respect our safety. I don’t think they would appreciate me ripping through their neighborhoods, so I ask that they have some consideration for ours. Even while leashed, my dogs have had some close calls with bikers, and a few years ago a puppy was hit on the street. Living an active lifestyle in Park City, I have the need for speed as much as the next person, but there is a time and a place.
