The Best Afternoon : Provo Canyon, Utah

The Best Afternoon : Provo Canyon, Utah

My goal with The Best Afternoon Series is to help you have an awesome time with your family even if you only have a few hours in your day!

After all, we can all use a little more nature time in our lives, right?!  I would like to spotlight Provo Canyon this week, with an emphasis on two stunning waterfalls that will excite every member of your group.

 

1.  Hike to Stewart Falls

This waterfall is huge, thundering, and absolutely breathtaking.  Any visitor to Utah who wants to get a glimpse into the amazing hikes that Utah has to offer needs to take this trail.

The trail winds through beautiful groves of aspen trees, providing shade for much of the hike.

2.  Picnic near Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls is a gorgeous place to take a picnic lunch and enjoy the view.  You can walk or bike along the paved path to reach the base of the falls.  Picnic tables are provided along the way, as well as big trees that provide some great shade.

Bridal Veil Falls is located about 4 miles up Provo Canyon on the south side of the road.  You will reach the parking area before you can see the falls if you are traveling east.
