Park City Council recently finalized a contract for trail-head improvements in Bonanza Flat, the first of its kind since City Hall acquired the scenic area over a year ago.  The work includes a parking area, kiosk for maps, and restrooms that will be put in next spring.  The areas will be at the Empire, Quarry, and Quincy Shaft trail-heads.  Bonanza Flats is a popular space with hikers and bikers in the summer and fall and cross-country skiers in the winter.  Parking is an issue on the weekends and restrooms will be a welcome site to many.  

Bonanza Flats was acquired in mid-2017 in a 38 million conservation deal.  It is a beautiful place to be enjoyed for many generations to come!
