Those traveling to Park City in a Park City shuttle are looking for an escape from the bustling crowds, noises, and stress of life in the city. Park City is well known for being nestled in the Wasatch mountain range where fresh air is abundant and lush mountain peaks provide a tremendous view and rejuvenating atmosphere. While experiences like hiking, fishing, horse-back riding, and mountain biking are well known to those who travel to Park City, there are places that even those living in and around Park City escape to. One such place is the scenic byway known as Guardsman Pass.
For many reasons Guardsman Pass is one of the best kept secrets near Park City, Utah. Secluded and off the beaten path, yet easily accessible and on the way from Salt Lake City airport, Guardsman Pass is unbeatable for the spectacular views it provides while in transit in a Park City shuttle to a dream destination. Lucky for those looking for Salt Lake transportation, Shuttle Park City provides a smooth and comfortable ride for private parties on this very route through Guardsman Pass. The Park City shuttle experience begins when you first enter Big Cottonwood Canyon, which takes you past the towering granite peaks that make up the Brighton and Solitude Ski Resorts. After reaching the top of the canyon where the journey usually ends, Shuttle Park City passengers start the ascent to an elevation of 9,700 feet above sea level. The climb provides views of lush green forests of evergreens and aspens that are then swallowed up by the majesty of the mountainous peaks that make up the Wasatch mountain range. At this height, the breathtaking view goes on for miles and miles in every direction. Make sure you ask your Salt Lake transportation driver to stop for you to take pictures.
Due to such high elevation, Guardsman Pass receives heavy snow fall and is only a route that can be taken in the summer and early fall. If at all possible, the scenery becomes even more spectacular during the fall when the many aspens that surround Guardsman Pass set the hills aflame with the vibrant colors of yellow, orange, and red. Your Park City shuttle ride will be worth it. For those wanting to catch stunning photographs of their trip to Park City, this is an unbeatable place. Guardsman’s pass has scenic turnouts around almost every bend that make capturing the grandeur an easy and enjoyable experience. Taking this scenic byway takes a total drive time of about one hour, where passengers will find Shuttle Park City drivers accommodating to photo stops or even a picnic along route. This alternate route to Park City may take more time to travel, but the view is well worth the wait especially when you travel in a Park City Shuttle .
