Natural Beauty of Utah Valley

Change Image...

Sundance Resort

A world of wonder, just minutes away

Utah Valley has a lot to offer—but its most breathtaking sights are provided courtesy of Mother Nature. An array of natural wonders—canyons, gardens, lakes and rivers, caves, waterfalls, and of course mountains—can be found within a few minutes’ drive. Almost every main community in the Valley is nestled near a mountain and a canyon, with other scenic geographic features nearby. In fact, no matter where you are in Utah County, you’re almost certain to be within a 10 or 15 minute drive of at least one of these natural wonders.

Many sites, such as Hobble Creek Canyon or the Nebo Loop, are easily toured by car. Others, such as Cascade Springs and Bridal Veil Falls, are only a short, level walk from parking or roadways. For those who prefer a more vigorous journey to your favorite scenic spot, some sites, such as Timpanogos Cave, require hiking.

Variety: Utah County’s scenic beauty spots showcase the finest that each season has to offer. Visit one site during two different seasons, and you’ll experience two completely different worlds. For instance, the glistening springtime green of the Alpine Loop gives way to the blazing colors of changing leaves in the fall. As an added bonus, many of Utah Valley’s natural beauty sites are accessible year-round.

Proximity: Perhaps the best thing about Utah’s natural wonders is that they’re in good company—most scenic drives and destinations in Utah Valley give visitors the chance to experience several breathtaking sites in one excursion. Timpanogos Cave, for example, is the “pot of gold” at the end of a beautiful drive through the Alpine Loop. Panoramic Deer Creek Reservoir can be viewed along the way to a fun-filled afternoon of sightseeing on the Heber Valley Railroad. In Utah Valley, beautiful views are definitely the rule, not the exception.
