Guardsman Way to Pine Canyon Drive + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Turn North on Guardsman Pass Rd near Brighton Ski Resort. Follow it up and over the mountains until you come to a fork in the road. Left will take you to Park City, while right will continue the route on Pine Canyon Dr. The route ends in Midway.
The route is a beautiful mountain road. At the beginning in Big Cottonwood Canyon, it is a winding road that climbs the canyon wall, with several switchbacks and excellent views. On top, it follows the long hills and gentle curves of the mountains, giving you long areas of sun and open grassland. When you turn off Guardsmans Way onto Pine Canyon Rd., it enters an Aspen forest, winding its way down the other side of the mountain and into Midway.
The road is paved and well maintained until you reach the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon. Beyond that point, it rarely receives maintenance. Beware of potholes.
There are no amenities on the road. However, you are rarely more than a few miles from any town.
This road is closed during winter months.
