If you're ready for a challenge that will end in an epic reward, this spot needs to be on your bucket list. Silver Lake Trail in Utah is a dazzling destination, and it offers two stunning pools for you to visit while you wander. You can push yourself to see both or enjoy one for some awesome photos.

Silver Lake Trail sits in Utah's American Fork Canyon. The entire area offers a variety of hiking trails, camping spots, and other outdoor activities for you to try.

This particular trek lets you visit not just one, but two magical lagoons for double the reward after a long climb.

According to the Forest Service's website, the central path is a 2.3-mile journey that leads you to Silver Lake.

To reach the trailhead, the website recommends taking I-15 to Alpine Exit 284. For seven miles, follow highway 92 east.

The Alpine Loop continues toward North Fork, where you will take a left onto Highway 144.

As you head toward Granite Flat Campground, keep an eye out for a dirt road before the turnoff on the righthand side. Follow that to Silver Lake Flat Reservoir.

You will find the trailhead and parking on the north side of the reservoir turnoff.

Fees to access the area cost $6 for a three-day pass, meaning you can come back for more adventures over the next two days.

You can choose to turn around from there or continue up to Silver Glance Lake further down a smaller "hiker" trail.

The smaller human-made path deviates from the main one right before the first lagoon.

As you climb higher, the views get more spectacular, and the second lake is simply breathtaking.

Grab your adventure buddy and get ready for a two-for-one deal you won't want to miss.
