How Our Hiking Tours Work
What We Provide. Provided by your guide will be transportation, poles, water, and snacks. Your guide will pick you up at your lodging location. He or she will discuss your trail options in full. After hearing your options, you will decide which trail you want to hike.
What to Bring. Unless we’re guiding you on some beautiful flat terrain, you should wear good sturdy hiking boots or trail shoes. Bring a hat and sunglasses. Dress in layers so you can add or take off layers depending on weather changes. Utah has a very high UV index, and sunscreen is important to protect your skin.
The Experience! On your hike, you will see aspen groves that stretch for acres. The forests and surrounding area is teaming with wildlife. We may even see a moose out strolling on the trail. It is common to see deer, grouse, chipmunks, and other critters of that kind. Park City also has red-tailed and other hawks, bald eagles, golden eagles, turkey vultures and many more birds to enjoy.
At the beginning of the summer, everything is still relatively lush and green from the spring snow melt and showers. Temperatures in Park City are very pleasant as it rarely reaches into the upper 90’s during the hottest part of the summer, and cool nights are common. As trails crisscross back and forth through the mountains, you will see different views and vistas. Mountain tops surround the area in a 360-degree radius. The wildflower season in PC is a short one. Some trails cut right through dense patches of multi-colored flowers. As the cool mountain air fills your lungs, you smell the light aroma of the surrounding flowers. When you exhale, you feel a total sense of relief as all your worries melt away. Toward the end of the summer, fall colors take over. Aspen trees turn a bright yellow, shrub oak trees go through phases of green, red, orange, yellow. While the pine trees stay green, the contrast of the blue sky, fluffy white clouds, and the rest of the scenery makes everything stand out more vibrantly and beautifully.

Safety Tips While Hiking
Making you safer. Everything we do is centered on safety. Safety is at the core of every product and every service we offer. We make safety accessible to everyone. Safety is a basic need of every individual and the world at large. We’ll help ensure that nothing goes wrong in the first place.
Welcome to the Baloise safety world. Today’s topic: hiking. No matter where you’re hiking route takes you – across scenic meadows, or up steep slopes – good preparation is essential. When selecting your route, be sure it’s one even the weakest member of your group can handle, and be sure to allow plenty of time. As far as equipment goes, sturdy and well fitting shoes are vitally important and so is breathable clothing that will not really hold moisture and will help transfer perspiration to the outside for quick evaporation. Your backpack should contain a first aid kit, hiking maps, a fully charged mobile phone, and a flair or whistle you can use to signal for help in case of an emergency. As a rule of thumb, carry as little as possible, but as much as you need. Energy bars don’t take up much space but when it comes to water, weight should not be an issue. Always check the weather forecast before setting out. No matter what kind of weather is expected, take along the raincoat, sun hat, and sunscreen. Weather conditions can change suddenly in the mountains. Before you hit the trail, make sure someone knows where you are going. Did you know that nearly 30 percent of accidents and emergency situations in the mountains involve hikers? So always watch your step. It’s best to stay and well-marked trails. Sometimes paths that look enticing lead nowhere. In case of an emergency, act immediately to save lives. Call emergency services – you have the number with you of course – and follow their instructions. Never leave injured persons unattended. If you get caught in a storm, stay away from cliffs trees and metal. Instead of stretching out on the ground, it’s better to sit on your backpack. Take it easy and arrive safely. After all, hiking is not a competition. Thanks for watching.
