Snowbird Barrier Free Interpretive Trail



Total Distance: 1.2 miles round-trip Hiking time: 30 min-1 hour depending on how much time you spend there

Elevation Change: 55 feet
 


"Offers a paved, wheelchair-accessible interpretive experience. Leaving directly from the upper deck of the Snowbird Center, the trail traverses under the tram and leads 0.6 mile to a wooden observation deck."
 
Driving Directions: Drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon Road for 8 miles and turn right into ENTRY 2 for Snowbird. Park in the main parking lot for Snowbird Center. Walk up through the Snowbird Center building to the TOP FLOOR. From the deck at the top walk out toward the Peruvian chairlift at the base of the ski slopes. The Barrier Free Trail starts just to the right of the Peruvian lift.
 
The Snowbird trail is a paved wheelchair-accessible trail that starts right at the Snowbird center by the trams. It's an easy paved walk to a beautiful overlook.

I put Abby in the stroller this time which gave my back a break from carrying her.

The trail is smooth so strollers will work for this. The trail is relatively short and easy for all ages.

Beautiful view at the end of the walk. There are benches if you want to sit or eat lunch.
 
This was a really fun trail. It's also right in the middle of tons of other fun summer activities that Snowbird has available so you could make a day out of it.
 



 
 
 
 

There's a fun little wooden shelter area the kids can play under and explore.
