Hunt for Hops and History with Summit Land Conservancy
Summit Land Conservancy’s Hops Hunters hikes explore conserved open spaces around Park City, and monitor the native wild hops population at the same time.
The Summit Land Conservancy Hops Hunters summer hikes are happening Wednesday evenings at 6pm starting next week. Each hike lasts about 90 minutes.
The series begins with a hike through Empire Canyon. A guide will meet hikers at the Daly Avenue dirt road gate, at 336 Daly Avenue. The hikes will delve into Park City's mining history, native flora and fauna, and of course, the wild hops!
At the end of the season, the land conservancy crew harvests the hops and partners with Wasatch Brewery to craft a truly local beer. Until then, bring your water bottles.
The wild hops ale they brew is unique every season and helps Summit Land Conservancy continue to save the lands that hops and hikers love!
Unlike beer, these hikes are free. Space on the hikes is limited to 20 people, and social distancing is required. Sign up at wesaveland.org. Dogs are welcome too as long as they’re friendly and on a leash.
