Hiking PC Hill in Park City
PC Hill is the local’s hiking hill as the huge letters standing for Park City are dominant from all around town. PC Hill is not as high in elevation as Bald Mountain or Jupiter Peak, but the prominent PC is more recognizable.
This is a super short hike, which makes it great for kids and older folks visiting from out of town that aren’t used to the elevation, or if you only have half an hour. The views from the top give a great view of all of Park City and surrounding mountains. This trail has zero shade and water, so bring at least 1/2 liter for the dogs.
If driving from SLC use this map.
There are no restrooms. There is enough parking spaces for probably 50 cars. The road has a lot of potholes so watch out for those.
Distance: 1.4 miles RT
Elevation gain: 518 ft
Time: 30 min – 1 hour
Dog friendly? Yes, on leash (but can be off leash with an eCollar in Summit county)
Kid friendly? Yes
The trail starts right from the parking lot. This sign says dogs have to be leashed within TH areas (aka the parking lot) – once you are on the actual trail they can be off leash (with an eCollar).
The trail makes two long switchbacks uphill.
You’ll reach the first trail intersection – keep straight/left for PC Hill. You could take this as an option side loop, adding on around 1/3 mile.
When you reach the fence at the saddle, turn left and work your way up the hill. There are several trails going in a bunch of different directions, but they all lead uphill.
Love this view of Park City!
It’s hard to view the letters fully, but this is the top part of the “C”.
