Best easy trails in Summer in Park City, Utah?

Anyone know of some easy single track or paved trails in and around Park City?

Last year I rented a bike on Main Street and just rode in the neighborhoods around Deer Valley, but this year I'd like to do some dirt trails. Any recommendations on easy, flatter trails in the area?

I don't remember the names of the stores (Jans, maybe) but there's two bike shops at least for sure in Park City. Just google them and then email/call them. They should be able to hook you up with info or some bikers in the local community that can help

Thanks, good to know. Yeah I think Jans is across from Cole Sport and they are the first real stores you come to besides the Dan's. I'll check them out.

The rail trail starts on the east side of town, near the exit from Hwy 40, the Prospectors area. and is crushed stone and a gentle grade clear to Echo Junction, thirty miles away.

The great thing about park city is that 90% of the trails are made for 90% of riders. Ask for directions at Jans to get to the nearest trailhead and then get lost for the day exploring all the trails connecting to and branching off of the mid mountain trail and you'll have a blast. The trails around Jeremy Ranch to the north of I-80 are fun and easy too.

I am thinking of riding up Jeremy Ranch Rd from I-80 to the other end, by East Canyon state park. Will that be open in early June? I have no idea about altitudes, snow, etc.

Thanks!
