3 Reviews of Silver Lake Backcountry
4 wheel drive accessible Free

Wide spacious camp sites. ATV paradise, fire pits established in most camp sites, only accessible by 4 wheel drive. Must cross a creek with 12"-18" of water at least once and up to 4 times depending on which camp site you choose. Brick enclosed outhouse style toilets available at trailhead about 1/2 mike from camp site. Beautiful back country, great views of the back of  Mt. Timpanogos. Fishing, and light watercraft permissible in Silver Lake Resevoir. Not crowded at all. Dirt/gravel road for about 10 miles to get to Silver Lake Reservoir from Tible Fork Reservoir. Then only dirt roads beyond the creek. We hiked 1,000 vertical feet to Silver Lake. It was so beautiful. We spent our afternoons paddleboarding on Silver Lake Reservoir.

Gorgeous Alpine Views all Around

An amazing spot to drive to and spend the day or backpack in and spend a night or two.  Be warned you will need a 4wd vehicle if trying to go up the road after a rain storm.  At the trailhead you have great acces to the lake and fishing.  There is also a large bathroom.  Some days the parking lot can fill and you'll have to park on the road or a pullout.  To the south you have a fantastic view of the Timpanogos Massif looming over the lake.  To the west you'll see Box Elder Peak and to the north is Dry Canyon and the Alpine Ridge.  Remember that you do have to hike in at least a 0.5 mile from the trailhead

Wonderful Spot!

This area is easy to drive to. You do have to drive through a small river and must camp half a mile from the lake. The scenery is beautiful and we even saw a herd of deer run by our camp. Fishing is right up the road too.
