Wasatch Mountain State Park
Wasatch Mountain State Park Review
Wasatch Mountain State Park, a 22,000-acre preserve, is 3 mi from Heber City. Visitors enjoy a number of activities, ranging from serene hikes along winding mountain trails to golfing at one of the two 36-hole courses. Children have their own fishing pond near the visitor center, which also provides parking places. In winter, hiking turns to snowshoeing, cross-country, or backcountry skiing along the Dutch Hollow, Snake Creek, or Pine Creek trails winding up through stands of gambel oak, aspen, and maple.
On the southern end of the park is Soldier Hollow, one site for the 2002 Winter Olympics. Soldier Hollow is open to the public year-round for hiking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, tubing, snowshoeing, biathlon, and other events. A beautiful lodge has food concessions, equipment rentals, and a souvenir shop. 2002 Olympic Dr. 435/654-2002. www.soldierhollow.com.
