Near Provo and Orem, you need to hit at least one of the hikes around Mount Timpanogos. This could be Stewart Falls, Big Springs Hollow, or Squaw Peak. It’s also something of a right of passage for locals to make the trek up Y Mountain on the south side of Utah Valley. For a more challenging hike, we recommend Provo River Parkway Trail—15 miles from Vivian Park to Utah Lake. Further to the south, a little ways out of Utah Valley, you can also find Pando, the Aspen Grove know for being the oldest living thing on Earth.
