Option 1:

Easy/Moderate: Bridal Veil Falls

Contact: Adam Frederickson ([email protected])

Join us as we take a nature walk to the majestic Bridal Veil Falls.  Located about 10 miles from the UVU campus, you’ll take a short drive through beautiful Provo Canyon, seeing forested land and snow-capped peaks to the right and left as you drive to the trailhead.  Once there, we’ll set out on a paved pathway for about ¾ mile, marveling at the quaking aspens, geological wonders, and dizzying high cliffs on the way.  Our destination is the 607-ft double cataract waterfall, revered by the locals and known as Bridal Veil Falls.


Head east on 800 North in Orem and bear left when the road forks at the mouth of Provo Canyon.  Stay on this road (US 189) for 3.7 miles.  You’ll see a sign for Bridal Veil Falls; take this exit to the right. After you turn off the highway, there’s a parking lot to the right.  The pathway starts at the north end of the parking lot. There’s also additional parking at Nunn’s Park, on the left side just after you turn off the highway.


Option 2:

Moderate/Difficult: Stewart Falls

Contact: Wiktor Mogilski ([email protected])

Join us for a hike to the beautiful Stewart Falls, which is one of the most scenic and photogenic waterfalls in northern Utah. Located about 15 miles from the UVU campus, you will take a drive through the gorgeous Provo Canyon and through Sundance to get to the trailhead. The trail to the falls takes you through a beautiful forest on the east side of Mt. Timpanogos. The scenic trail to the falls is 3.40 miles (out and back) and is considered a moderately challenging route that takes an average of 1 h 48 min to complete.  

The trail is still snow-covered this time of year and will be icy in spots due to the warming temperatures. Good footwear is a must. Microspikes and/or trekking poles are highly recommended. 

Here is a Google Maps link to the trailhead:
