Follow the Loop, the Alpine Loop
Monday, September 07, 2015
The Utah Valley is home to the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, which is part of National Wilderness Preservation System. The forest has been set aside by the federal government to remain undeveloped wilderness, allowing those who use it a chance to enjoy solitude within nature.
Part of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest system is the Alpine Scenic Loop Backway, a 20-mile drive starting on US Highway 92 at the mouth of American Fork Canyon. This paved scenic drive provides views of Mount Timpanogos and winds past Sundance Mountain Resort and Timpanogos Cave National Monument. It takes drivers to an elevation of 8,000 feet along the crest of the American Fork Canyon and heads to Provo Canyon and US Highway 189.
