It would be impossible to pick a favorite season at Victory Ranch. Whether it’s warm and sunny or cool and breezy, it’s a recreational playground for adults and kids alike. Each season accentuates a different set of activities, features and magnificent views of Utah’s terrain. Focusing on the current season, here are some of our favorite fall adventures at Victory Ranch.
Waiting for you just beyond your doorstep are more than 20 miles of well-maintained trails, masterfully designed and built by Alpine Trails — a premier trail builder in and around Park City for more than two decades. The trails are great for all fitness levels and activities, from a casual wilderness walk to a heart-pumping, uphill run. Taking it slow? Be on the lookout for birds, like the mighty Golden Eagle.
2. Mountain Biking
A more exciting way to experience the miles of backcountry trails is via mountain bike. Don’t own a mountain bike? We offer complimentary mountain bikes and helmets for adults and kids, including Fat Bikes for a smoother, more adaptable ride. Check out Kamloop Trail for a mild 3% incline or the Fremont Trail for 5–7% inclines. The work is worth the reward: expansive, 360º vistas of the Uinta and Wasatch Mountains, Kamas Valley and the entirety of Victory Ranch. Unbelievably beautiful when lit up by fall colors of red, orange and yellow.
3. Yurt Camping
Yurt camping in the backcountry is a cross between literal backyard camping and a remote wilderness adventure — with all the luxuries of home. The yurts are accessible by foot, bike or via one of our 4×4 Polaris Rangers (more on those below). Equipped with electricity and cozy beds, Victory Ranch yurts are spacious enough for the whole family. Just outside, you’ll find outdoor seating, fire pits and activities like horseshoes. Drift off to sleep to serene wilderness sounds, like the nearby whispering stream. Best of all, one of our private chefs can prepare a home-cooked dinner or breakfast for you on site.
4. 4×4 Ranger Adventures
Looking for extreme adventure, sans the physical workout? Hop into one of our 4×4 Polaris Rangers for an off-roading tour of the backcountry. It’s not uncommon to spot moose, elk, deer and rare species of birds while rolling through the mountains and valleys. For new homeowners, we recommend a tour with one of our wilderness guides to pick their brain about the area and its native wildlife.
