Why We Live for a Summit Creek Summer

Man Sitting Outside

While Summit Creek offers matchless year-round living, it goes without saying that the coldest winter days afford us an even greater appreciation for warmer months. There’s an unspoken agreement that, yes, summer nights at Summit Creek are amongst the most memorable. That exploring the Wasatch amidst greenery sheathed in dew is perhaps the most meditative practice there is. That, yes, summer is—without a doubt—a reason in and of itself to put down roots in this magical Utah locale. Below, get a glimpse of why we live—truly live—for a Summit Creek summer.

Immerse Yourself in the Outdoors

There is no shortage of outdoor adventure at Summit Creek come summer. Our 300+ acres of uninhibited land become yours to experience and discover. Grab a mountain bike to reach the highest peaks, put on a pair of sneakers to run amongst the tall grass, hop in a ranger to catch the sunset from your favorite lookout point. Whatever it is that fuels your mind, body and soul, you can find it just beyond your doorstep.

Hiking Trail

Yet, while we’d love for Summit Creek to be host to every adventure under the sun, there are several summer activities to engage in nearby. With the Provo River, Deer Creek River and Jordanelle Reservoir just a drive away, fly fishing is a summer must. And, if you want to hike or mountain bike in a mountainside setting that’s not your backyard, check out Slate Canyon Loop Trail and Rock Canyon Trail in Provo.

While residents are drawn to the simple bliss that nature affords, Summit Creek boasts access to countless modern conveniences and nearby summer happenings.
