The Snow King Summit via Slow Trail is a 3.8 mile hike featuring wildlife and scenic views. The trail is good for intermediate hikers, and dogs are allowed on the trail.

The Slow Trail is shared by hikers, dog walkers, and trail runners. There is an option to take the ski lift down after reaching Snow King Summit, which shortens the hike to 1.9 miles.
