“a fall favorite”

This 20-mile drive winds through rugged alpine canyons of the Wasatch Range offering stupendous views of Mount Timpanogos and other glacier-carved peaks. The route follows Utah Hwy. 92 up American Fork Canyon and then continues through Uinta National Forest into Provo Canyon on U.S. 189. Timpanogos Cave National Monument and Robert Redford's Sundance are located along the route. Along the route, take a short detour to Cascade Springs. This mountain spring is criss-crossed by a 1/4-mile boardwalk, leading out over clear natural pools and cascading terraces filled with fish and aquatic plants. Entirely paved, the Alpine Loop is open from approximately late May to late October. Snow closes part of the road the rest of the year. Not recommended for vehicles more than 30 feet long. Visitors must purchase a recreation pass to use facilities in this area. A $6 pass is available and good for 3 days; a $12 pass is good for 7 days; there is also a $45 annual pass available. The passes are good for recreation along both the Alpine Scenic Loop and the Mirror Lake Hwy. For more information contact Pleasant Grove Ranger District 801-785-3563

Probably the most popular scenic drive in the greater Salt Lake region of Utah, the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway is a narrow, twisty mountain passage known for spectacular views of fall colors, valleys, and mountains.

Officially designated as State Route 92, it’s a 27 mile run along a narrow, single lane road with dozens switchbacks and tight turns. Alpine Loop Scenic Byway starts at the north, at the mouth of American Fork Canyon. It then ascends elevation as it showcases the heights of Mt. Timpanogos and takes you past the Timpanogos Caves. The Alpine Loop eventually runs past Robert Redford’s famous Sundance Resort before ending at Provo Canyon, near Bridal Veil Falls.
