Park
“Beautiful hike into the canyon to see the rock formations and mountain views. Can be as short or as long of a hike as you want–for a shorter hike, we typically go about 1.5 miles in and then turn back around.”

Lake

Park
“Lots of paths to walk, multiple playgrounds, and huge hills to roll down, sled down, or ice-block down. Insider tip - go throw pebbles at the big brown water tank on the eastern side of the park. Its surprisingly satisfying.”

“Talk about convenience. This canyon is in our backyard, literally. If you are not a hiker or mountain biker all you have to do is drive up the hill and you will have amazing views of Utah Valley. We would definitely recommend getting there for sunset.”

“I like to go here in the summer when it's hot and walk through their great splash pad. Great place to go with little kids who want to run around in the water or have a picnic. There's a fun playground too.”

“It is THE trail to take (4x4 only). It will take all day and takes you over American Basin, Cinnamon Pass, Animas Forks, and Engineers Pass. Some of the prettiest scenery in the country! ”

Trail
“Bring lots of water. Short but steep hike. The view at the end is AMAZING. I'd recommend going early in the morning and watching as the sun rises over the valley. Take some snacks or a light meal along in your backpack. Take sunscreen too - not a lot of shade.”
