American Fork Canyon

American Fork Canyon

American Fork Canyon is a canyon located in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. The canyon is famous for the Timpanogos Cave National Monument, which resides on its south side. It is named after the American Fork which is the river that runs through the bottom of the canyon.

The area is accessed by State Route 92, which is called the "Alpine Loop." Visitors entering American Fork Canyon from the east can follow SR-92 up the canyon and leave the canyon to the summit of the Alpine Loop, down the east side of Mount Timpanogos, past Sundance Ski Resort and then out into Provo Canyon to the south. Spurs off SR-92 take visitors to Tibble Fork Reservoir and Cascade Springs.

This area is home to many hiking, biking and equestrian trails with several established campgrounds. Tibble Fork Reservoir and Silver Lake Flats Reservoir are popular camping and fishing spots in the summer as well as offering excellent snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and backcountry skiing [ [http://www.feedthehabit.com/backcountry-skiing/backcountry-skiing-in-american-fork-canyon-utah Backcountry Skiing in American Fork Canyon, Utah - FeedTheHabit.com ] ] during the winter months.
