ON THE HORIZON
The rural quality of the Heber Valley has attracted everyone from trappers to pioneers, farmers to ranchers, skiers to golfers, families to investors. Entering from the north, people who visit the Valley for the first time are greeted by the winding Provo River and the agricultural land and livestock in the North Fields with the majestic backdrop of Mount Timpanogos.
According to various tourism reports, open space is an essential element in attracting out-of-town visitors to the Heber Valley – visitors who value our unique rural lifestyle and who spend a lot of money in our community. The North Fields area of Wasatch County is one of our most important economic assets and should be preserved for generations to come. – Ryan Starks, Wasatch County Director of Tourism and Economic Development
