Silver Lake Trail 036 Professional Reviews and Guides

"Breathtaking alpine scenery, abundant wildlife, and a well-designed new trail to a blue lake nestled in a glacial bowl make Silver Lake one of the most perfect hikes in Utah County. It’s a great day hike, but you’ll want to stay longer."

"Set in a truly gorgeous mountainscape, Silver Lake in American Fork Canyon (not to be confused with the Silver Lake farther north off Big Cottonwood Canyon) gives you tremendous rewards for hiking its short length.

In fact, just driving up the final bit of road to the trailhead provides a stunning view of an array of mountains in the distance, including Mount Timpanogos, giving you an idea of the unparalleled alpine scenery awaiting you on the actual trail."

"Silver Lake is located in the Lone Peak Wilderness."

Short, but enjoyable trail. It does require that you drive up a dirt road for awhile, but most cars should make it. Small lake at top with a little water fall and some good views of the surrounding peaks.
