You are walking down to the springs, the entire way back is uphill; so be prepared. The current temperature of the springs are very pleasant. If one pot is too warm, you can head down to the stream and cool down a little bit. Show more

This hike follows the north end of West Mountain up to the radio towers on the north summit. Beautiful views of Utah Lake and Utah Valley. Barren, dry and often breezy but views are worth the hike. 3.5 mile one-way distance (7 mile round trip) was started at the gate about 1/4 mile off the asphalt road. The gravel road is closed to vehicles in winter but accessible for hiking. Follow the gravel road about 3/4 to 1 mile then leave the road and head south along steeper OHV trails which head directly towards the top of West Mountain. The OHV trails reconnect with the gravel road just below the radio towers on the North Summit (false summit). The true summit of West Mountain is on the south end of the mountain (follow West Mountain Ridge Trail). If you stay on the gravel road it's less steep but 1.5 miles longer (3 miles longer round trip). So...from the gate its 7 miles round trip if following the steeper OHV trails running nearly straight south to the towers, or it's 10 miles round trip if following the gravel road. Show more

Proposed as the Spanish Fork section of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, this is a fairly easy hike with great views of the mountains, Utah Valley, and Spanish Fork Canyon. The first part is under construction as a paved trail. Most of the trail follows a dirt road that is now closed to motor vehicles. As the road turns down a switchback, look for the trail rising to the right. The last section is rather faint, but is usually easy to follow; just go level along the narrowing bench. At the end it will go through an oak stand, turn a corner, and you will have a great view of Spanish Fork Canyon. Beyond here there is no real trail, just a maze of deer tracks. The first part is on city land and BLM, and the end is on state land, but the middle is on private land, so please be respectful.Show more

Length: 1.7 mi • Est. 42 m
This is an easy, pretty walk that very few people know about. It follows the grade of the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railway before the 1983 Thistle Slide blocked it and forced them to build a new line across the river. It is shady, with views of the Spanish Fork River and a large pond, away from the traffic on the other side of the canyon. After crossing the pedestrian bridge in River Park, turn right to follow the gravel grade. You can also go left, but it is not as scenic, and is blocked at private property after only a third of a mile or so (please respect property owners and do not continue). The end of this trail is a protected trail easement across private property to reach Mount Loafer State Wildlife Management Area. The trailhead is at the Spanish Fork River Park (Utah County), which is closed in winter.Show more
