This 20-mile drive winds through rugged alpine canyons of the Wasatch Range offering stupendous views of Mount Timpanogos and other glacier-carved peaks. Easily the most popular scenic drive on the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, the Alpine Scenic Loop (SR92) is a narrow, windy road famous for fall color drives. It leads past Robert Redford’s year-round Sundance Resort, famous for family skiing in winter and outdoor theater in summer. The loop begins at the mouth of American Fork Canyon on SR-92 at 5,000 feet elevation, and follows the canyon to its crest at 8,000 feet. From the summit, the road winds down towards Provo Canyon and US-189. Lush vegetation characterize this route. At the summit of American Fork Canyon, vistas of Mt. Timpanogos are visible through impressive apsen groves. Campgrounds and picnic areas are numerous. Trails lead from the road into the Mt. Timpanogos and Lone Peak Wilderness Areas. 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.
