Went with a group specifically to see the program and re-enactment on May 10th. This is done each year to celebrate the original event on May 10, 1869. There are bleachers to watch the event which includes speakers, bands and the trains coming together. Nice...More

This NP Site is a bit out of the way, but worth it. The train shed wasn't open because of an unplanned power failure, but it was a rewarding visit nonetheless. They show a 20 minute video, there is a great museum, small gift shop,...More

We visited Park City in mid December. Unfortunately, there was barely any snow. We decided to road trip here and check it out. It was actually a great 1/2 day and we learned a lot about the area. The trains were already in storage, but...More

We went in February and on a day when the visitor center was closed! Regardless, it was still interesting and in a desolate, but beautiful area. There are two Auto Tour Roads (take them!), although only the East Road was open when we visited, and...More

First of all, go in the summer. For the summer part of the season they have trains out and reenactments and it's a lot of fun. To be honest, in the off season, there isn't a whole lot to do comparatively. There's an interesting, though...More

Very cool place. Get there before 10 AM or 1 PM: they do reenactments of the historic meeting of the East and West trains, with real steam engines. You can get right up close to the engines, and climb up a platform that allows you...More

yes it is accessible by all types of vechiles. It is paved up to the front door. If you go on May 10th, do plan to park in the adjacent dirt parking lot.
