Outside City Limits: West-Siders

By Jane Gendron June 27, 2022 Published in the Summer/Fall 2022 issue of Park City Magazine


 Hilly and typically lacking in tourists, Jeremy Ranch, Pinebrook, and lofty Summit Park are the stomping grounds of families, retirees, and folks looking for an easy commute to Salt Lake City. South-facing Jeremy has a predominantly sunny aspect, whereas the north-facing ’hoods tend to be more shaded by evergreens, particularly as you gain elevation. Overall, the neighborhoods are a mix of quaint subdivisions and large private homes, some of which are perched deep in the hinterlands. The streets and homes of Jeremy contour a canyon alongside the lush fairways of its eponymous golf course. On the other side of the interstate, Pinebrook has its own village of shops and restaurants and hugely popular Woodward, an extreme-sports hub with indoor and outdoor attractions. A network of trails link Jeremy, Pinebrook, and Summit Park to popular as well as under-the-radar hikes and rides. Here, year-rounders tap into everything they love about Park City without actually being in Park City.


For trail lovers, excellent rides (and hikes) are tucked into thickly forested Pinebrook and Summit Park (e.g., Short Stack/The Road to WOS loop) as well as more exposed Jeremy (e.g., 24/7 to Flying Dog). To partake in an extreme-sports playground for kids and kids-at-heart, Woodward Park City has an array of adrenaline-pumping options from indoor trampolines, parkour, jumps, a concrete skate-scooter park, and more to outdoor mountain bike terrain—designed for all levels of learning. For fitness fun, pop into Tadasana for a hot yoga class or Rise Boxing for a workout. And if you’re lucky enough to be a member, golf The Jeremy.
