Midway hiking trails have been rated among the best in the country. The mountainous area with its small, alpine-esque villages give backpacking here the feel of the Swiss Alps, and as you set out from Midway you'll have your choice of directions. Wasatch Mountain State Park is the largest with 22,000 acres and 19 miles of trails just outside of the town, but you can also visit Jordanelle and Deer Creek State Parks. Young and inexperienced hikers may prefer the trails at Wasatch Mountain because there are several short and easy hikes geared toward families and beginners.
Fun Local Events
Each Labor Day Weekend the town holds its annual Midway Swiss Days, a fun and family-friendly event celebrating the town's heritage with a parade, food vendors, yodeling contests, craft booths, and live music. If you plan on using a Midway timeshare to stay during the event, you'll want to plan your trip with time to spare. Soldier Hollow's International Sheepdog Championships is another can't miss annual festival, especially for the dog lover in the family.
When to Visit
If you use your Midway timeshare during the busiest season, June through August, you can expect to share the area with many of the other tourists coming here to enjoy the excellent weather and outdoor activities. Winter is the second-busiest season, starting with the peak winter sports weather in January/February through March. If you want to avoid the crowds, then you may want to visit Midway during the fall. The slowest months of the year are November and December.
With its small-town, Alpine feel and wealth of outdoor activities, you might not expect the town to stay awake much past dark. However, the parks often offer chances to hike or stargaze after dark with special guided hikes and tours, and in town tourism season especially keeps the bars and restaurants open late for visitors.
