8 Family-Friendly Waterfall Hikes in Utah

Utah, United States


Tylyn Cullison

For a desert, Utah has an impressive amount of waterfalls.

The cherry on top is that many are within a minutes drive from Salt Lake and Utah counties and are quite easy to get to. Others are hours away, but well worth the drive! Below is my list of the best family-friendly waterfall hikes in Utah. This is by no means a complete list, so comment below with your favorites!

1. Battlecreek Falls, Pleasant Grove

2. Donut Falls, Big Cottonwood Canyon

3. Hidden Falls, Big Cottonwood Canyon

4. Kanarra Falls, Kanarraville (just south of Cedar City)

5. Stewart Falls, Provo Canyon

6. The Payson Grotto

7: Bridal Veil Falls, Provo Canyon

8. Cascade Springs*

*Disclaimer: This one isn't really a waterfall, but it is a beautiful place that is fun and easily accessible for any age. If you go early in the morning, there may be moose nearby, so be careful! If you go in Autumn, you won't be disappointed!

Thanks for reading! I'd love to discover more great waterfall hikes, so comment below with your favorites!
