Train Ride Provo Canyon

Heber Valley Railroad up Provo Canyon, Utah, Utah County, Family Train Rides

Climb aboard for breathtaking scenery and a time to unwind during this relaxing, three-hour ride. Capture stunning views of Mt. Timpanogos and the dramatic landscape of the glacier-carved Provo Canyon.

The Provo Canyon Limited departs from The Heber Valley Railroad Station, follows the shores of Deer Creek Reservoir then travels along the banks of the renowned Provo River to Vivian Park. You will have a layover of approximately 20 minutes at the Park, where the little passengers can play at the playground, and the grown-ups can enjoy the riverside views.  The return trip to the Heber Depot is just over an hour aboard the train.
