This is one of the most beautiful canyons in the state, unfortunately it is also becoming one of the busiest. With the improvements at Tibble Fork, a lot more people are up the canyon every weekend.

I’ve never thought to find a place like this so close to us. The canyon has so many campgrounds and picnic areas that we can not even count them all. The nature itself surrounding us is outstanding. You can take not only your car but...More

American Fork Canyon is really beautiful. It has Timpanogus cave and a real pretty lake called Tibble. The lake area has a nice area for Little kids. The lake is stocked with trout.

Truly enjoyed our time here. Some of the roads I would suggest not attempting without 4-wheel drive but the views sure are worth it. Lots of lakes, trails and streams to explore. We had a nice picnic by a stream.

American Fork Canyon is a nice drive in the fall if you enjoy the color change of the leaves. Nice drive between Alpine and Provo Canyon, then you can decide if you want to go to Provo or Heber.

The small stream running through the canyon seems so peaceful to me. Except for an occasional loud vehicle, the place is quiet.
