Mount Timpanogos is separated from adjacent peaks in the Wasatch Range by two deep, west-aligned canyons; American Fork
, both emerging from the hills next to the correspondingly named towns. State highway 92 (known as 11000 North Street in the urban area) follows the northernmost of these, besides American Fork Creek for several miles then heads south, round the far side of the mountains through the Uinta National Forest
to the Provo River where it joins US 189 between Provo and Heber City. There are two paved side roads heading further west, plus a network of unpaved tracks, ATV routes and hiking trails. An entrance charge was introduced for the Alpine Loop in 2000, and the 2020 fee is $6 per vehicle, good for three days.
