The Uinta National Forest's Alpine Scenic Loop begins at the mouth of American Fork Canyon on SR-92 at 5,000 feet and follows the canyon to its crest at 8,000 feet. From the summit, the road winds down toward Provo Canyon and US-189.
Lush vegetation characterizes this route. At the summit of American Fork Canyon, vistas of Mt. Timpanogos are visible through impressive aspen groves. Campgrounds and picnic areas are numerous. This Alpine Loop also provides access to Timpanogos Cave National Monument and Sundance Ski and Summer Resort. Trails lead from the road into the Mt. Timpanogos and Lone Peak Wilderness areas.
