This definitely isn’t the fastest way to get from Orem to Springville, but it is certainly one of the most fun ways. The road is paved up to Hope Campground, the first of several USFS campgrounds. All the campgrounds close for winter. However, there is abundant dispersed camping along the trail. Squaw Peak has a little bit of everything, including mountain and canyon views, camping, and several hiking trailheads. After Rock Creek Campground, the 2nd USFS campground, the road narrows, and drainage moguls cross the road. High clearance isn’t necessary, but you may drag your belly going over some of the taller rollers.
