“An easy-access, mild loop with great views of Old Town Park City and Deer Valley.”— Tessa Stephens
Family Friendly Easy access, just enough ascent/descent to make it challenging, well-marked, can do the loop pretty quickly.
Follow the street down a short stretch to resume (beginning of Gambel Oak Trail) on the left. Climbing Gambel Oak is the most strenuous part as there are lots of switchbacks and rocks, getting into shade (and snow in April!). The view changes from Old Town Park City toward the ridge between Park City/Deer Valley.
Toward the top, the trail diverges with April Mountain and Masonic - stick to Masonic. This is essentially the "summit" with views of rolling hills (and some large houses!) Continuing down Masonic, you eventually come to the last fork - Masonic or re-connecting with Lost Prospector. Both trails will take you back to the parking area, but I opted for Lost Prospector since is was easier and sunnier. The last part of Masonic back to Lost Prospector has some great views of Park City Resort as well as town.
