During the winter season, Basin Recreation packs and grooms 16 miles of connected trails in the Willow Creek Park and Utah Olympic Park areas. These trails accommodate a wide variety of non-motorized use such as skate skiing, walking, biking, pushing baby joggers, etc. The groomed trails run from The Fieldhouse and Whole Foods in Kimball Junction all the way into Park City via the East 224 Connector Trail and McLeod Creek Trail. The trail runs along the Swaner Nature Preserve, through the historic Wallen Farm sight, across narrow bridges, through the neighborhoods and Willow Creek Open Space before connecting with McLeod Creek Trail. Add some extra loops around the Willow Creek Open Space and Miss Billy’s bypass on the way into town. McLeod Creek Trail runs by the Copper Moose Organic Farm and through the woods along the creek, passing beaver ponds and elk habitat, before paralleling HWY 224. There are 4K of classic lanes set in the Willow Creek Park area and 2K on Miss Billy’s Bypass.
The Basin Recreation 5K cross-country skiing trail near the Utah Olympic Park is for nordic skiing only and DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED! The trail is directional, rotating daily, and offers a variety of options on how to ski the loop. The lower loop in the meadow is open and gentle while the upper portion of the loop is winding, technical and challenging.
A Winter Grooming Report is updated at least twice a week, weather dependent. Additionally, a winter grooming report email is sent out once updated. To receive the winter grooming report please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
