Nearly 10 miles of scenic trails link Swaner to Park City’s extensive recreational playground. Outdoor enthusiasts can access single-track trailheads on the northern property of Swaner Preserve. These trails are connected to the Glenwild/Blackhawk/Flying Dog trail system. Additionally, an extensive system of paved and gravel trails and boardwalk line the perimeter of the southern property of Swaner Preserve.
These trails pass directly in front of the Swaner EcoCenter, run south along the East 224 Boardwalk, past Swaner Farm, and connect to the McLeod Creek Trail, which can take you all the way into Park City on foot, bike or skis. Thanks to Basin Recreation, these trails are maintained year round and include grooming for Nordic skiing in the winter. The Swaner EcoCenter provides bike and ski racks to encourage fun and carbon free transportation for our visitors.
Swaner Preserve Wetland Discovery Trail
Looking for a great way to explore the preserve on your own? Swaner recently opened our self guided nature trail - the Wetland Discovery Trail. Please stop into the EcoCenter for a self-guided nature trail brochure. The EcoHost will give you a combination code to the entry gate lock. The tour takes about an hour, and is a leisurely out-and-back, on flat gentle terrain. The trailhead is just about 1/8 mile south of the EcoCenter. There are 8 trail marker posts that correspond to the brochure - each stop along the way contains interesting facts and history about the preserve. Please follow trail protocol - details of acceptable use are available from EcoHost at Swaner EcoCenter front desk. Official opening coming soon!
