Description

This trail is 16 miles long and is also known as the "backbone" of the American Fork Canyon trail system. It connects several loop routes along the northern portion of the district. North of Mill Canyon, the trail becomes more difficult, with steeper grades and more exposed sections of trail. Enjoy amazing views along the entire trail. Users can take this trail as far as the Alta/Brighton area.
