Description Suggest change

Provo Canyon is a major canyon east of the cities of Provo and Orem. The Provo River, renowned for fly fishing, starts high in the Uinta mountains and flows through the canyon after passing though two reservoirs.

Provo Canyon contains world-renowned ice climbing and a smattering of developed rock climbing routes on limestone.

Also running through the canyon is US Highway 189 connecting the Provo-Orem area with the Heber Valley.

Getting There Suggest change

From I-15 exit eastbound on the Orem 800 North exit. Follow 800 N until it ends and curves left into US 189 at the mouth of Provo Canyon.
