Located at the base of Deer Valley Ski Resort in Park City, these short, paved paths meander around a set of small lakes. You can walk, ride a bike or take your dog along the flat terrain while stand-up paddleboarders and kayakers paddle the waterway. It is a beautiful setting and usually does not have very many people considering the proximity to busy Main Street.

Circling the main path is just under 1 mile, with other small detours that you can add to your stroll. There is a pavilion with picnic tables as well as doggy bag stations to provide plastic bags. Grab a quick bite to eat or sit down on the patio overlooking the water at Deer Valley Grocery Cafe. If you want a little extra room to ride a bike on a longer trek, Deer Valley Drive loops around the ponds in a much larger circle but still keeps you within the area.

The ponds are stocked with small trout for catch-and-release fishing. You can rent watercraft from PCSUP located at the beach.
