Conquer The Trails at American Fork Canyon

Just thirteen minutes from our apartments in American Fork is an incredible hiking destination known as American Fork Canyon.

It is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the state, offering incredible photo opportunities and unforgettable sunsets.

Trails include:

Cascade Springs

Cascade Springs features three fifteen-minute loop trails that surround the springs' major flow area. Seven million gallons of water a day reach the surface of impermeable rocks, and the shallow, larger ponds are where hikers can see native cutthroat trout swimming in the reeds.

Stewart Falls Hiking Trail

Considered one of the most popular hikes in Utah, Stewart Falls is a stunning three-tier waterfall nestled on the east side of Mt. Timpanogos. The trail begins with a little elevation grain before meandering through beautiful groves of mature aspen and pine trees.

Silver Lake

Silver Lake is a picturesque hike that wanders through meadows and groves of aspens, and over clear mountain streams. The trail spans about three to four miles, and after completing several switchbacks, hikers reach the sparkling lake. This adventure takes about 2.5 hours to complete and is well marked by the National Forest Service.

Timpooneke Trail

Timpooneke is one of two trails used to summit Mount Timpanogos. It is 7.5 miles to the top, and along the way, hikers see alpine forests, waterfalls, and rocky slopes in addition to a spectacular view of mountain meadows. Mount Timpanogos is the second highest peak in the Wasatch Mountain Range at 11,750 feet, and making it to the top requires plenty of food and water.
