Sammy Linebaugh Reporting Eight years ago a Park City man got to work building a dirt trail that would connect the area's three major ski resorts for summertime recreating. Now, finally finished, the single-track trail provides unprecedented access to some of Summit County's most beautiful backcountry.

Troy Duffin, Trail Designer and Builder: “It just seemed like a natural, to connect all three ski areas and the neighborhoods beyond that.”

Dawn Bowling, Mountain Trails Foundation: “I’m a little fatigued coming up that hill, but actually it’s been pretty stable all day.”

Bob Kain, Park City: “That’s the best part about it, is the fact that you’ve got a good climb in the beginning.”

The Mountain Trails Foundation helped pave the way for approval of the new trail and now provides maps of the route, which runs between the Silver Lake Lodge in Deer Valley to I-80 at Pinebrook.
