All Seasons Adventures
Johnny was excellent. Very helpful and did a nice job assessing our experience and then pushing us to really challenge ourselves. This was a great experience would highly recommend him!!!
This past weekend I came to Park City for a summer vacation with my family. We went on a guided hike with Kathy and a guided bike tour with Vince. Both guides were awesome, polite, very informative, and catered to our every need. They even picked us up from our rental house to go on the hike/bike tour and provided us with snacks and water. Highly recommended, you won’t regret booking with this company. Will come back to Park City and book with them again!

How fit do I need to be?
You will need to be able to bike between three and five hours, depending on the itinerary you choose. After booking, your guide will determine the group’s skill level and capabilities and cater the day to your specific abilities. Keep in mind, opting for the full day option means more biking, which is strenuous even if you stay on beginner level trails.
What if I’ve never mountain biked before?
Night rides are for intermediate to advanced riders only, but as for the day tours, as long as you pedal on two wheels, you can book this adventure! A guide will explain the different mountain bike techniques and body positions to get you feeling comfortable on the trial. You will progress at a level that is consistent with your comfort. Once you finally get the hang of trail riding, you will only want more!
What do I need to bring?
Here’s a list of the things we suggest you bring:

- Biking gloves are optional but recommended
- Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
