Overview

This hiking and mountain biking trail contours the hills above Kimball Junction, providing excellent views of the Park City area. The route described here begins at the Spring Creek Trailhead on Glenwild Drive and follows the Stealth Trail to its junction with the Glenwild Loop Trail. A 1.1-mile section of the Glenwild Loop is used to access the east end of the Stealth Trail to complete a loop of approximately 4.6 miles. This trail is appropriate for hikers of all ages in good physical condition. Mountain bikers can expect intermediate technical difficulties including steep climbs and loose, rocky sections.

Trailhead

This trail is accessed from the Spring Creek Trailhead on Glenwild Drive in Park City. To reach the trailhead from I-80 in Summit County:

  1. Take Exit 145 for Kimball Junction/224 South
  2. Turn north onto Highway 224 and continue 100 yards to a ‘T’ junction with Rasmussen Road
  3. Turn right onto Rasmussen Road and continue 0.4 miles to Glenwild Drive
  4. Turn left onto Glenwild Drive and continue 0.2 miles to the Spring Creek Trailhead on the left

The Route

From the parking area, begin hiking or riding north toward the bridge over Kimball Creek. Just beyond the bridge, a junction is encountered for the Stealth Trail. Turn left onto the Stealth Trail and begin heading west. Follow the trail as it climbs gradually above the creek through sagebrush and grasses. After roughly three quarters of a mile, the trail turns north and begins climbing more steeply into the hills.

Keep following the trail as the views get more impressive the higher you go. Mountain bikers may find this climb particularly challenging due to numerous rocky sections that make finding the best uphill line more difficult. After approximately 1.75 miles, a junction with the 24-7 trail is encountered. Keep right to stay on the Stealth Trail.

Continue on the Stealth Trail as it passes through some patches of small oak trees before ending at the junction with the Glenwild Trail, approximately 2.2 miles from the trailhead. From here you can turn around and return the way you came, or to complete the loop route, turn right onto the Glenwild Loop Trail and begin heading south. Continue on the Glenwild Loop Trail for 1.1 miles as it contours the hillside, much like the first section of the Stealth Trail, but at a higher vantage point.

Keep following the Glenwild Loop Trail until it crosses Glenwild Drive and arrives at a junction with the east end of the Stealth Trail. Turn right onto the Stealth Trail and enjoy the fast and easy descent back down to the Spring Creek Trailhead to complete the 4.6-mile loop.
