Quarry Mountain

The purchase of Quarry Mountain was the first joint open space project between Summit County’s Snyderville Basin Recreation District and Park City Municipal, and used bond funds from both groups. Since many elk winter on the south side of the mountain (above Highway 224), this easement limits trail use in favor of wildlife habitat.
