The Provo Canyon drive is gorgeous. With snow on some of the mountains, we saw some fabulous views. The lake was beautiful and well worth the drive. Stop by Sundance on the way back for a great meal. You will love the ride and quaint area.

Even if you have never fly fished before, you should hire a guide and try it on the Provo River. The outfitter has all the waders, rod and flies for a half or full day guided fly fishing trip that is fun and educational. The beautiful Provo Canyon has many moods. Try Alpine Loop up past Robert Redfords Sundance Lodge... More

A quick detour from Provo/Orem and drive to Sundance is a great Sunday afternoon activity. Waterfalls, scenic views, relaxing time!

Provo Canyon never ceases to amaze me! With each new season the views are inspiring and unforgettable! As you enter the canyon just a few miles up the road there are two lovely picnic areas and lying on a blanket with your honey and a picnic lunch has never been better. I have taken so many beautiful photos just looking... More

For a relaxing drive and to just enjoy nature, this is a great place to go. Fishing and boating is great during the summer. The colors are fantastic in the fall and winter transforms the canyon into a magical wonderland.

Provo Canyon is one of the most beautiful place in Utah with plenty to offer, however driving the canyon take more skill than operating a motor vehicle. Keep in mind rush hour traffic, it's not to bad most of the time. The times to consider is holidays, snow days, camping return days and ski return days. Then there's everyday speed... More

The drive between Orem, Utah and the Deer Creek Reservoir is gorgeous!! Beautiful and amazing mountains, trees, river, and more! It's especially so in the fall, with leaves changing to vibrant autumn colors. Take a side trip to Sundance and above, which is also a terrifically beautiful area. Enjoy!

Provo Canyon is just a short drive from the Provo Orem area. So many things to do, from biking, picnicing, fishing, hiking, or tubing down the river. The paved river trail is great for biking or walking. There are many picnic areas along the main canyon road or take the Alpine Loop road to Sundance for hiking and skiing.
