TRAIL MILES: 10 (map link)
The Summit Park Open Space is protected by a conservation easement held by the State of Utah Forestry, Fire and State Lands and is a federally-recognized Forest Legacy property. The Forest Legacy program safeguards “working forests” that protect water quality, provide habitat, forest products, opportunities for recreation, and other public benefits.
With upwards of 10 miles of trails including 3.5 miles of hiking-only trails, Summit Park has something for everyone. Densely forested, Summit Park is an ideal place to escape the summer heat but it also provides fantastic snowshoeing/ski touring options in the winter months.
Summit Park has one designated trailhead at the intersection of Parkview Drive and Matterhorn Drive. There is street side parking at the top of Innsbruck Strausse and Matterhorn Terrace. Parking along the streets is prohibited from November 1 to May 15.
The Road to WOS/Short Stack: By far the most popular trail in Summit Park, this 4.5-mile loop will give you the full Summit Park experience. WOS is a multi-use trail and bikes should yield to hikers at all times.
Over Easy: The name might be deceiving but the hike is worth it. This hiking-only trail boasts steep and rocky terrain that leads to the ridge top with views of Summit Park, Toll Canyon, Lambs Canyon and beyond. With several access points and connection options, this hike can be a short sprint or a 3+ mile adventure to Summit Park Peak (via Summit Slam).
