Lost Prospector Loop
The Lost Prospector Loop is an easy route on Park City's east side. The loop starts on paved Park City trail, transfers to buff easy singletrack on the side of a small mountain, then descends to the Rail Trail. This 7.2-mile loop has a beginning altitude of 6800 feet, with a peak of only 7100. This loop is easy-intermediate technical, easy aerobic. There will be about 600 vertical feet of total climbing.
