10 Must-Do Waterfalls Hikes in Utah

From the Wasatch to the desert, Utah has some stunning waterfalls.

By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

One of our favorite kinds of hikes to do in the spring and summer are those that end in a beautiful waterfall. If you agree and live in Utah or have plans to visit, you've got to check out our list of some of Utah's most impressive waterfalls. Some of these are way out in the desert in Southern Utah while others are less than half an hour from downtown Salt Lake City. That's pretty tough to beat! Whether you're looking to explore the mountains of Northern Utah or head south for some red rock adventures, this list has something for you.
