Horsetail Falls is a short but steep hike that climbs up a wooded canyon to a spectacular cascading waterfall. The hike is located in northern Utah in the city of Alpine just above the rodeo grounds. The trailhead can be accessed the end of Grove Drive, where you will find a small parking area. Starting at the Dry Creek trailhead, It's a 2-mile hike (4 miles round-trip) with a decent amount of elevation gain through Dry Creek Canyon. There is a steep incline entire hike and you will have three stream crossings on the way up the hike. In the early portion of the hike, you will be able to see Lone Peak to the left and Pfeifferhorn straight ahead. The meadow is about 2/3 of the way to the Dry Creek Trail sign. Once at the Dry Creek Trail and you will see the small trail on the left with the black rope tied to a tree. It's a steep decline so using the rope is advised. Follow the animal trail for about 5 minutes and you will hear the waterfall. Once at the waterfall, there are gorgeous views of the valley below. This trail is best experienced during spring and fall. Parking can fill up quickly, especially on Saturday mornings, so make sure to arrive at the trailhead early.Show more

This trail is in a fee area. The first part of the trail is exposed, so on a hot day, it can get pretty warm. Then the trail goes through trees. In the summer the trail is very lush and crosses streams. There are lots of wild flowers. If you go go another 100 yards to the left on the Ridge trail you'll reach a meadow where you can see down to The Heber Valley to the East, Lone Peak Wilderness to the North and Mt. Timpanogos to the West.Show more

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. You can continue up and climb Mahogany Mountain or enjoy the view of the mountain from where the trail ends. Please note the road leading up to the trail is extraordinarily rough, having a 4x4 vechicle is recommended.Show more
