The wide flatwater of the Provo River, consistently full of fishermen and rafters, creates a feeling of peace and tranquil fun along this beautiful drive. Above the canyon, US Hwy 189 passes Deer Creek Reservoir and heads into Heber Valley, tucked at the base of towering Mount Timpanogos. There are several pullouts along the highway to access Provo River - a Blue-Ribbon river known for prolific trout populations. Provo Canyon runs approximately 24 miles from Heber Valley to the Provo/Orem area. It is a primary thoroughfare between Heber Valley and Utah County, and is accessible year-round.
