Healthy in Heber

Recreation, socialization, and celebration—they’re standard ingredients for a healthy lifestyle. And in Heber Valley, they’re all a standard part of daily life too. Given all the area offers, it’s little wonder Heber Valley is ranked the fastest growing micropolitan area in the United States.

Whether you want to slay the switchbacks, run the road, hike the hills or feast on fresh farm food, here’s how the Heber Valley does healthy and happy:

Wasatch Mountain State Park offers nearly 22,000 acres of pristine and stunning land for a variety of outdoor activities. The park’s Dutch Hollow Trail System is a series of interconnected single-track loops, with most segments featuring two to three miles. The full system boasts roughly 20 scenic miles for hiking and mountain biking.

Popular with road bikers and runners, the Heber Valley Loop follows paved roads through downtown Heber City, out to the pastoral meadows of Charleston and through the charming Swiss Village of Midway. The ride can be started from any point and endless views of Mt Timpanogos can be expected.

On Thursday nights, much of the community gather at Heber’s Main Street park for a weekly concert and farmer’s market.

Additional events, many designed to get people outside and active, are held throughout the summer.
