Bike, Hike & Sundance Resort|
This all-day excursion includes hiking, biking, a tour of Robert Redford's Sundance resort and an optional scenic chairlift ride. We will pick you up at your lodging in Park City and take you on a beautiful 45-minute drive to the top of the glacier-carved Provo Canyon. The drive involves driving by two beautiful reservoirs, small Utah towns and stunning views of Utah's 12,000 ft peaks.
The Provo River Parkway Biking Excursion starts in a small canyon adjacent to Provo Canyon at the gates of a national forest. The paved road winds down the canyon about 4 miles until it reaches Vivian Park; which is right next to the Provo River in Provo Canyon. Then the trail turns into a paved bike lane and runs along the Provo River for about 8 miles until you reach the mouth of the canyon. On the trail, you will experience bridges across the river, beautiful parks, and ponds, waterfalls, and tunnels. This is a very beautiful bike ride and it is mostly a gentle downhill grade.
About 5 miles before the bottom, there is a beautiful 2 tier waterfall called Bridal Veil Falls. We will park the bikes and do a small 15-minute hike to the base of the falls. Here you can look over the valley and enjoy the mist of the falls blowing in your face.
After the hike, we will continue to ride down into the city of Provo, Utah where the trail ends. After the trail we will do a 15-minute drive back up Provo canyon until we reach the famous Sundance Resort. Here we will do a small tour of the resort village and ski area. We can have the option to have lunch at the delicious Foundry Grill or do a picnic lunch ourselves by the river. After lunch we have the option to do a 45-minute scenic chairlift ride. At the end of the day, it is a nice relaxing 45-minute drive back to Park City.

“I hoped to accomplish this objective on my biking vacation - exposing my wife and daughter (age 17) to biking. I explained to Jeff how I wanted a scenic, relaxing, non-pressure day of cycling for them to let them feel some of the joy I do on a bike, and how I want to incorporate more biking into our vacations. He came up with a two-stage day, which started with a beautiful, slow descent along a deserted mountain road with a van following in case it was needed. After a delicious and ample lunch an easy, scenic trail was taken and enjoyed by all. Jeff's planning and easy manner made this a successful day.
I heartily recommend Exclusive Excusions for your vacation needs in Park City.”
