Start up the trail that begins off of a small round-a-bout. Once you are on the trail, you will pass through a field before starting your journey to the top of Iron Mountain.
The trail will then take you into a wooded path to the top of Iron Mountain. Get ready to use your legs to get you up the steep incline. Along the way you may see moose and other wildlife, so make sure you make noise so that they can hear you coming. You will also walk among beautiful wildflower, aspen trees and nature.
At the top of the trail, there is a bench to relax on and views of Park City, Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley.
- If you choose to do this hike in the winter, be prepared with snowshoes or yak-traks. And don’t forget your sled to sled back down! Here is a video from last winter, and it is so much fun:
- If you were to continue up the trail further to the right instead of going to the overlook, it will merge with Mid-Mountain Trail
GETTING THERE: Follow 224 for 3 miles to Meadows Drive, take a right, go to stop sign. Take a left on Aspen Springs Drive, follow it around to Delta Drive where you’ll turn left. At the next stop sign turn right, proceed straight through the next 4 way intersection until you finally come to Iron Canyon Court on the right. The parking spots are marked on this road and the trailhead is at the circle at the end of the road where all the no parking signs are at.
- Trail shoes
- A leash for your furry friend
- Yak-traks or snowshoes – in the winter
- A sled – in the winter (optional)
