What to do in August

by 2giants Online Now Jun 29, 2007 at 7:30 AM

We will be attending a family reunion in August in Park City. We will have some free time (assorted days)before and after the planned reunion. What should we see and do? Anything we shouldn't miss? Long day trips are probably out since there will probably be plans for dinner each night.
Thanks in advance for any help

    As I recall there is a summer Luge or bobsled run near Park City. I looked several years ago and you had to book it months in advance.

    A little advice from someone who was in Park City last summer for a wedding- try taking it easy for the first couple of days. I had trouble with the altitude and it took a day or two to become acclimated. Drink plenty of water and limit your alcohol. Also, don't try to do anything too strenous the first day (like hike). Someone actually said that it is better to stay in Salt Lake the first day to get adjusted before moving on to Park City or Deer Valley.

    Park City resort has an Alpine Slide, a zipline, a new Alpine coaster and lift lines will take you and a mountain bike to the top for a ride down.

    There is also the Olympic park where athletes train, and ski museum and the bobsled runs which you are able to try for a hefty price.

    Nearby is the Factory Outlet for some great shopping

    The drive to Mirror Lake is not long, maybe a little over 1/2 hour. This is in the Uintas and is a great mountain getaway. There are numerous hikes in the vicinity, get a trail guide. I like the one to Mt Baldy, or a little easier one along the Highline trail to Scudder lake.

    You could also head over to Heber Valley for a trip on the Heber Creeper steamrailroad
