We did the most amazing hike a couple weeks ago. We got to finally do Upper Silver lake in American Fork Canyon. I have had this hike on my list for years and it did not disappoint. It was absolutely breathtaking. My pictures don’t even do it any sorts of justice honestly. It was about 4.4 miles roundtrip from lower silver lake. It got a little steep near the end but I wouldn’t say it is really a hard hike. We saw people doing it with hikes but I would imagine it would take a lot longer. Seeing it during the fall was fantastic but I’ve seen pictures from the Summer too and it’s a different kind of beautiful. It is probably one of my favorite hikes in Utah so I highly recommend it. Don’t confuse this with the Silver Lake up Big Cottonwood Canyon though, their are two Silver Lakes. To get to the one I am talking about you just drive up past Tibblefork Reservoir in AF canyon and then once you get to the lower Silver Lake there is trailhead you can’t miss. Oh, and it’s dog friendly. All three of us hiked up and ate lunch at the lake and it was absolutely perfect. I would love to spend every weekend up in the mountains honestly.
They are my favorite.
