    TR: American Fork Canyon: Tibble Fork area

    I took today off and decided to head up to American Fork Canyon. In the 14 years I've lived in South Jordan, I've never been up in that particular canyon.

    Based on information I've gleaned from other ATV and 4x4 sites, it seemed like it would make for a fun ride in a new environment.

    Now I've ridden just about everywhere so far: the Paiute trail system, Moab, Logandale Nevada, Skyline drive, Farmington Canyon (across Skyline drive to the (B)ountiful ).

    Quite honestly, It was disappointing that every trail dead-ended and I had to back track. In addition, I didn't realize it was going to be a rock crawling adventure. Almost none of the trails were smooth, but instead they were just covered in boulders.

    All-in-all, I still had a good time. I got there at 0930 and headed for home around 1530. By 1500, a decent thunderstorm and severe lightning rolled in and Silver Lake was rocking with the bolts of light.

    Apologies for the poor quality of the photos, they were taken with my cell phone (only 2mp)
    Here are a few photos:

    Some of the pictures had lighting that made it look totally different. Good for you for getting out and playing!

    Very cool. As far as scenery I love it up there. Silver lake flat is really low. We went there a few times at the beginning of summer and it was only a few feet below where the truck is parked.
    The man thong is wrong.

    Riding up by Silver Lake, and Tibble Fork is ok, however there is better riding up by Cascade Springs. Its not the best riding, but its decent for a quick trip.
