It wasn't so long ago that horses, miners and cowboys were the main inhabitants of the Park City Area. Take a trip back to this historic time period by taking a wagon ride around the mountain fields filled with flowers, grasses and trees.
After spending so much energy hiking, horseback riding, biking, kayaking, golfing and shopping, hop on a wagon for an afternoon or dinner ride. You'll still be out in the mountain scenery, but there's less effort involved to get the reward.
There are many different companies that run wagon rides during the summer. Some of them run tours through the ski resorts, while others are on the private ranches surrounding Park City. Explore the companies listed below for detailed options.
Most companies will arrange transportation from door to door, meaning that there's no need to worry about the GPS navigation system directing you to Timbuktu or having a designated driver sit out from the evening activities.
Wagon rides are a summer event, but check with the individual companies for specific dates of operation. Spring and fall can be excessively wet, making the route difficult to navigate. In winter, the wagons are switched for sleighs.
Wagon rides vary in cost by the services offered. A simple half-hour ride starts around $25 per person, while a private couple's ride is around $100 for an hour.
Dinner packages are popular options for groups of all sizes. Prices tend to hover around $100 per person including food, however this varies both up and down, based upon the company and the level of service offered.
A wagon ride can be a great way to have everyone together as a nice respite from the exhausting activities on the mountain.
For those couples looking to light (or re-light) a spark in their relationship, a private ride is a fail-safe method to set a romantic atmosphere for the evening.
