Aspen Grove Summit Trail
The Aspen Grove Summit Trail joins the Aspen Grove recreation area (in the North Fork of Provo Canyon) to the Alpine Loop Summit of American Fork Canyon. The trail is narrow singletrack: mostly smooth aspen cruising, but with a good spattering of rocky rooty technical stuff. Elevation gain is 1200 feet over the lower 2 miles, for an average 12% grade. The trail is 2.9 miles in length each way, and is done as either an up-the-highway and down the trail, or as an out-and-back on the trail. Season is late May through early October.

Getting there: From I-15, take the Alpine-Highland exit just south of Point-of-the-Mountain. Go east towards the mountains on UT-92 and continue up American Fork Canyon. There's a $6 fee (as of 2009). About 6 miles up the canyon, turn right at the North Fork junction. Drive up to the summit of the Alpine Loop. To reach Aspen Grove, continue 3 miles down into the North Fork of Provo Canyon.
