Mahogany Mountain towers 4,000 feet above American Fork but blends into the foreground of the higher Mt. Timpanogos just behind. Just a bit shorter than Mahogany Mountain, the north peak is a lesser summit on the same mountain mass. With a basic trail and decent views it's worth an exploration.

The dirt road to get to the trailhead is a rough 5 miles. The trail itself becomes little more than an overgrown game trail for the last 3/4 of a mile. That being said, the views of Utah Valley, American Fork Canyon and beyond (great back view of the twin peaks), and the front, usually unseen side, of Timp, make this fun to do at least once. My 4 year old and 2 year old only had problems with the wildflowers and other plants that lined the trail that we brushing their arms, legs, and faces - since they were shorter than the plants.

We went 10 Sept 2016. The view is beautiful. Enjoyed the trail. This is my third time here.

Fun family hike. The dirt road getting to it is about 5.3 miles, and very rocky. Our SUV was barely sufficient. Definitely worth the views.

We set out to find a cache and found this neat trail along the way. After we found the cache we continued up he ridge line and got a few great pictures. This was a moderate hike and I was spent after it, could have been the fact that we had been hiking all over the area this day and this hike ended up being the last one.

This trail takes a little bit of time to get to, but it's a short hike with great views in all directions. There is some extra elevation in the middle as you go over a small hill. The trail fizzles out just short of the summit, but it's fairly easy to pick your way the last few hundred feet.
