There is simply no better place to enjoy nature at its finest than Glenwild. This exclusive retreat is tucked in a natural alpine valley surrounded by a buffer of low foothills with the majestic Wasatch Range dominating the horizon. Glenwild’s 1,500 acres holds only 196 building sites with homes strategically designed to meld into the surrounding landscape. Vibrant fields of wildflowers captivate the spring vista while snow still lingers on the neighboring peaks. When you come home to Glenwild nature casts a spell. Time seems to stand still, an overwhelming sense of calm abides and you become one with the environment.

A portion of those trails are accessible from Glenwild, especially the multiple Flying Dog Loops. Bordering Glenwild to the north is a portion of the Swaner Nature Preserve, a protected ecologically sustainable tract that benefits form the stewardship of a generous community. Below is the Foundation’s interactive map that will allow you to see where trails intersect Glenwild in addition to viewing the entire trail system.

Several migration paths bisect the property, especially for vast herds of elk at certain times of year. Other visiting wildlife seem to be more random in their patterns, but mule deer are ever present in the morning and evening hours and moose will occasionally wander down to the water’s edge. Overhead, goshawks and redtail hawks along with soaring eagles can be seen scouting a lunchtime meal while marmots and weasels defensively scurry into their burrows. The winter brings a few bobcats down to the lower elevations and porcupines nestle high in protective spruce trees. Glenwild is an ever-changing landscape for a wide variety of visiting and native wildlife.
