One of my favorite local spots is Tibble Fork Reservoir up American Fork Canyon. Taylor and I live about 20 minutes away from it now, but we grew up at the base of this canyon and have spent a ton of time up there!
Since the baby came, we’ve spent more time than usual at home and haven’t been up in the mountains as much. Getting my new hiking boots from Merrell gave us a good reason to get outside and head up the canyon.
American Fork Canyon has many beautiful hiking trails, including easy ones for the amateur hiker. One of my favorites starts at Tibble Fork and goes up the mountain, giving you a beautiful view of the reservoir and surrounding areas – look for trail “040”.
This day we went up and just hung around Tibble Fork. It was raining and so beautiful – I love being up in the mountains when it rains because I love the mist and mood it creates! We watched the rain from the car for a little while, and then once it slowed down we went on a walk around the lake. We went down onto the dock, and I was really grateful for my Merrell Boots at this point because going down the walkway to the dock is very steep and since it was wet, was kind of tricky! But these boots have great grip so it was totally fine.
Merrell creates high-quality gear for all types of adventures. Having new hiking boots inspires me to get outside just like new workout clothes motivates me to workout, so I love these ones! You can get them on Zappos.com, which means fast, free shipping, great costumer service and an amazing return policy. Zappos is my go-to for footwear!
If you live in Utah or plan to visit, I would recommend taking a drive up American Fork Canyon! You can make a stop at Tibble Fork, and continue on and drive the Alpine loop which puts you out at Provo Canyon. It is a gorgeous drive, especially in the fall!
