Looking down one of the trails on Quarry Mountain
Route: Various trails
After finishing a nice sunrise hike on Mt. Aire, I took a ride over to Park City and found the weather to be much better than forecast. As such, it seemed like a nice time to jog Quarry Mountain, a peak that had been on my radar since skiing in the area this past spring.
Starting at the paved recreational trail, I soon took a left onto the Quarry Mountain Connector. Generally in open fields, the trail wound its way around the mountain, ducked into some scrub, and eventually reached a junction with another trail on a somewhat even contour. The map showed the trail connecting to the access road to the southeast, so I initially headed that way. I soon reached a dead end at a large pile of dirt (a foundation was being poured on the other side).
Backtracking, I went to the opposite way (ie when going uphill, taking a left) and followed paths to the tower covered summit. Best I could tell, the highpoint was a wooded embankment just beyond the fenced in towers. Just beyond this, there were excellent directional views from the access road.
