Last weekend Tawni and I did the Silver Lake hike up American Fork canyon. Although it was a little harder than I anticipated the views are worth it!
If you're looking for a fun, nearby hike that's a little bit of a challenge -- give this one a try! You can also camp up there if you're feeling so inclined.
Caveat: the last part of the road to get to the trailhead is pretty bumpy and unpaved.
