The scenic Alpine Loop Road in Utah County will open to the public Friday, June 14, according to the Utah County Sheriff's Department.

The drive, which takes people from Sundance through the mountains while exiting in American Fork Canyon is known for its spectacular views of Utah's peaks, which you can see in our gallery above or by clicking here.

The Alpine Loop is usually closed from November to June, depending on the weather.

The road is often open in time for the Memorial Day Weekend, but large amounts of snow kept it closed a few weeks longer.

The Granite Flat Campground is also open, but currently, there is no available water.
