Recreation: hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, winter snowshoeing and alpine skiing
Description: Empire Canyon is one of Park City’s most beloved areas in history. In some ways it was even loved to death during the booming Silver Mine era of the early 1900s. The scarred hillsides that remained gave way to the recreational use of Empire Canyon for alpine skiing. Today, the magnificent mountain has become one of the finest ski resorts in America: Deer Valley Resort.
