The Pelican Point quadrangle covers northern Utah Lake and the adjacent lake shore in Utah Valley. Pelican Point is in the southwest corner of the Pelican Point quadrangle, extending into Utah Lake from the eastern edge of the Lake Mountains. The quadrangle includes parts of the cities of American Fork, Lindon, Pleasant Grove, and Saratoga Springs, and the town of Vineyard. American Fork is the primary stream in the quadrangle; it flows southward from American Fork Canyon in the Wasatch Range to the north side of Utah Lake. U.S. Interstate 15 extends from northwest to southeast in the northeast corner the quadrangle, U.S. Highway 89 lies parallel to Interstate 15, and State Route 68 follows the western shore of Utah Lake near Pelican Point.
This 1:24,000-scale map of the Pelican Point quadrangle in Utah Valley is part of a larger project to compile the geology of the Provo 30' x 60' quadrangle. A large part of the Pelican Point quadrangle is covered by Utah Lake, but the adjacent lake shore is underlain by unconsolidated Quaternary deposits and bedrock is exposed near Pelican Point.
