Destination guide

Heber City’s the gateway to the Wasatch and the Rockies

Heber City is hemmed in by the Rocky Mountains on one side and the rock-ribbed Wasatch Range on the other. It sits in a handsome bowl forged from snow-mantled peaks and cascading forests of fir trees. Ski fields carve through the ridges to the north, while hiking routes wander this way and that along the creeks, hills, and canyons to the west. There's goldrush history here too, along with plenty of fly fishing and golfing, which all adds up to make Heber City vacation rentals a safe bet no matter the time of year.

Things to do

Heber City's locomotives and lonely mountains

The plumes of steam and the panting chug of the locomotives that ride the Heber Valley Historic Railroad mark out one of the top attractions here. This old track weaves into Provo Canyon and offers eye-watering views of Cascade Mountain and the Wasatch, inviting passengers to spot cougars and eagles as they go. Heber City vacation rental homes are also your ticket to see the iconic place where the Union Pacific Railroad and the Central Pacific Railroad first met, creating America's famous trans-continental route at the Golden Spike National Historic Site.

Activities

It’s all about the great outdoors in Heber City

This part of Utah is famed for its alpine beauty, and Heber City certainly doesn't disappoint. Just a little to the north are the acclaimed ski fields of Deer Valley, where you can don the salopettes, hit the hair-pinning black diamond runs, and slosh down local brews in old cowboy saloons in the evening. When the snowmelt comes, other sportsters look to get Heber City vacation rentals to enjoy the 5 individual golf courses that dot the valley, or to conquer the trails from Coyote Canyon to Strawberry Narrows – get ready for sweeping panoramas of the Rocky Mountains from those.

Weather

Sun and snow in Heber City

Heber City manages to magnetize travelers right throughout the year. When the snows fall and the resorts of the Wasatch open for business, Heber City vacation rentals in the mountains fill up with boarders and skiers eager for the pistes. The season in the major ski fields around Park City typically runs the length of the whole winter, from November to April. Once that's done, the thaw opens up the intrepid mountain trails. Hikers and ramblers, picnickers, canoers, and mountain climbers all flock to the peaks of Deer Valley, Clegg Canyon and beyond from June to September, making Heber's summer a blowout of outdoorsy exploration and adventure.

Natural features

Between the mountains and hills of Heber City

With the snow-dusted tops of the Wasatch Mountains on one side and the rolling hills and forests of the Wasatch-Cache National Forest on the other, it’s easy to see why Heber City has become a veritable magnet for outdoorsy types. The ridges of Bald Mountain and Deer Valley are where skiers can carve through the snowdrifts in winter, and they offer oodles of camping spots and rambling routes by summer. Then there's the Timpanogos Glacier and the wild alpine meadows to the southwest: a wonderland of winding, waymarked trails, scree slopes, cougar-spotted woods, fields peppered with foxgloves and shimmering high-altitude lakes.
