Heber Valley is located 48 miles east of Salt Lake City, and adjacent to Park City. In the world today, one would search long and hard to find such a beautiful valley. It is surrounded by majestic mountains. The western mountains, have beautiful Mount Timpanogos, over 12,000 feet high and with a glacier on it that overlooks this beautiful valley. The valley communities include Heber City, Midway, Charleston, Daniels, and Wallsburg. The towering mountains and green valley were, and still are, often compared to the stunning scenery of Switzerland. In the late 1850's and early 1860's John Huber and Ullrich Probst were two Swiss who established homes and farms along Snake Creek. Shortly after 1957, the Huber and Probst property was sold to the state by their descendants and became the heart of Wasatch Mountain State Park. Generations of the Probst family still reside throughout this remarkable valley.
