Spanish Fork Peak is a great day hike, but it can be an overnight hike by continuing north on the Sterling Hollow Trail past Maple Canyon Lake and down the Right Fork of Maple Canyon, ending at the Whiting Campground in Mapleton Canyon. Hiking through would necessitate shuttling. The top of the mountain has some loose, but not dangerous, rock and a beautiful view of Utah County. Look for the mailbox embedded in a large pile of rocks; it previously held a notepad for hikers to record their accomplishment or leave messages for each other.

A fair challenge most of the way up. Once at the pond there are a few spots to pitch a tent. After the pond to the peak would be the most challenging part of the hike as there is a steep incline with loose rock in some parts. Great view! Also a metal marker where someone started a log book to date and sign your name (not sure if it is still there). Up and back in about 8 hours.
