Near of Park City, the Mid Mountain Trail runs the mountainside above Deer Valley Ski Resort, Park City Ski Resort and the Canyons Ski Resort. This 23 mile route rolls and winds through pine and aspen forest at roughly 8,300 feet elevation and offers scenic vistas over the various ski area developments. For the most part, the trail is typically wider than most singletrack trails, and is exceptionally maintained.

The route is typically ridden as a one-way mountain bike ride with a car shuttle from Deer Valley heading northwest towards Kimball Junction. However, there are some nice loop options with the nearby Wasatch Crest section of the Great Western Trail, and using the main connector trail from Park City Resort called Spiro Trail.

If you are riding one-way from Deer Valley, this is a moderate trail. However, if you are combining with the Wasatch Crest, then this trail can be quite challenging due to the climbing involved.

The Mid Mountain Trail is entirely on private land owned by one of the ski areas or local developments. There are some sections of trail that have been granted public easements. The northern 6 miles of trail past the Canyons Resort is considered the most scenic and is also the least travelled section. The last three miles of official trail is called the Hunters Trail. This trail is much narrower than the rest. It has been less traveled due to some easement issues across private land. It is unclear connecting the Southwest Perimeter Trail to the Hunters Trail to the Mid Mountain Trail is currently legal or not.

Access to the Deer Valley trailhead is provided via a large public base area parking lot near the Stein Erikson Lodge off SR97 south of Park City.

Overall, Mid Mountain Trail is the 60th most popular mountain bike trail of all 74 mountain biking rides in Utah. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Mid Mountain Trail including Park City Mountain Resort and Wasatch Crest Trail.
