Observation Point Trail

A walk in the woods.

The Observation Point Trail is great for all ages and skill levels. Formerly called the Barrier Free Trail, this hike begins behind the Snowbird Center. Head inside and go up to the 3rd floor, where you’ll find an exit at the back of the building leading to a large open area with a bridge on the right-hand side.

This trail is free, paved, relatively flat and stroller-friendly, making it a great hike for little ones and families. You’ll walk for about a half mile among beautiful flowers, and hopefully some wildlife, before reaching an observation deck. Hikers have spotted squirrels, deer and even an occasional moose, so keep your eyes peeled. The observation deck overlooks the ski resort and the canyon below so young children can enjoy the incredible mountain views without a steep climb.

All activities, lift openings, terrain access and hours of operation are conditions permitting and may change at any time. Check the Summer Report for the latest status.
