State park offers year-round fun in Utah County’s backyard
Bring the family to Wasatch Mountain State Park for year-round adventure. The winter months feature a host of events and activities at Soldier Hollow. Soldier Hollow was the site of the Nordic events during the 2002 Winter Olympics. Cross country skiing is fantastic at Soldier Hollow. Groomed trails, rental equipment and professional instruction are available.
The site features a snow tubing hill with 1,200-foot sliding lanes for day or night family tubing with a tow lift and music. Snowshoing is another popular winter activity and rentals are available.
Midway Ice Rink is nearby and features the only open-air Olympic-sized ice skating rink in Utah. Rentals are available.
After the snow thaws, golfers will enjoy the four public 18-hole golf courses. Families can also camp, hike, fish and ride bikes at the park.
There are family friendly attractions nearby. Visit the crater and swim or scuba in the hot springs at the Homestead Resort. How about a family trip on the Heber Creeper Railroad? Labor Day is time for the Sheep Dog Trials and Swiss Days in Midway. For more activities, see www.gohebervalley.com.
Camping is just one of the many activities offered year-round at Wasatch Mountain State Park.
