If you're in American Fork, you must visit one of the most famous trails in Utah County: Timpooneke Trail. This trail takes you to the top of the Mount Timpanogos. It's almost 15 miles long and it might be hard for inexperienced hikers. But you don't need to go all the way to the top; you can still enjoy the trail even if you only hike a section. Your dog is welcome to come with you, but you'll need to bring lots of water and snacks for your fur baby. Depending on the time of the year, there might be snow or ice on the trail, so you should be aware of that and go prepared.
