Hiking in American Fork Canyon

American Fork Canyon

Getting There: East on Timpanogos Hwy (SR92), exit 284 in Utah County
Entrance Fee: $6 Dogs Allowed
Notes: American Fork Canyon is north of Mt Timpanogos. It has a tumultuous mining history. After the first crude roads became obsolete, a railroad was built up the canyon, ending at Tibble Fork Flat. The present road is the northern half of the Alpine Loop. Many of the most scenic Wasatch trails originate in the canyon, including Mt Timpanogos. The Timpanogos Cave is also located there.
