The Glenwild bike trail system features a number of ride options and loops making it a great network for all abilities and riding styles.

Glenwild Bike Trails System

The Glenwild bike trails system is the place for early season Park City mountain biking. Additionally, the Glenwild trails have some great options for Park City locals looking to get in a few mid-day lunch laps with it’s close proximity to the Redstone and Newpark areas.

Getting to the Glenwild Trailheads

There are a number of options for accessing the Glenwild area trails. If you are looking to ride the main Glenwild Loop, the most direct route is to park at the Glenwild/Blackhawk trailhead. From the parking area, ride over the bridge and turn right on the trail directly after. Follow the trail as it switchbacks to the top of the initial climb. As you near to the top, you’ll take a hard left to cross Glenwild Dr. You’ll now cut across the hillside and with mixed elevation changes. When you pop out unto a double track, continue straight to more switchbacks that will take you to the ascent of the Glenwild Loop. From the top, it’s a fast descent through rolling terrain before a short climb up-and-out.

When to Ride Glenwild Loop

Because of the trails’ lower elevation and southern exposure, these are some of the first Park City area trails to dry out for the summer. Typically, Glenwild’s south-facing trails are ready to ride by April, and the rest are ready shortly after. For current trail conditions, visit the Snyderville Basin trail condition report on their website. Additionally, Glenwild can see heavy traffic on the weekends, especially during the early Spring and Summer months, so please be courteous and remember to use proper trail etiquette.
