The canyon is incredibly beautiful all year. Each season brings the opportunity for different activities. Hiking, biking, climbing, ice climbing, rafting, horse back riding, snow shoeing, the list is endless. There are several beautiful parks with picnic tables and fire pits. This is truly a...More

We always take Provo Canyon when the weather allows and this particular trip it was absolutely stunning! Great road, towering canyon walls, water, and other scenery makes this a true pleasure to drive. So much more enjoyable than taking I-80 up into the mountains.

Loved the view. Hiked Bridal Vail Falls. Parking was a joke. Drivers speed and not safe. Points of interest not marked very well.

From PC the best route to take with a trailer would be I80 to I15. I think that is the route Google Maps would have you go.

It takes about 15-20 minutes to hit the mouth of Provo Canyon from Provo if you are going down University.
