Hike To Utah’s Very Own Sword In The Stone On This Exhilarating Summit Climb

Utah is hiking heaven, and no matter what your skill level, there are beautiful trails for you to explore. There’s a little-known hike in American Fork Canyon that includes several lakes, and if you can make it to a steep summit, there’s a sword in a stone that’s straight out of The Legend of King Arthur.
