Description

Added by Eric Bennett

Stewart falls is a great 4-mile roundtrip hike with stunning views of that falls and great opportunities to witness fall colors if you're hiking as the leaves change. This is a dog-friendly trail.

The canyon is closed during snowfall so this is only accessible between May-Nov usually. It is best during the fall when the leaves have changed color, but let's be honest, it's always great. Head up Provo Canyon and follow the signs to make a left going into Sundance. Follow the road past the ski resort and lodge until you see a parking lot on the left just near the kiosk entering the Alpine Loop.

The waterfall is beautiful and is located at the end of the trail (about 2 miles). It takes about 30min-1hr to get to the falls depending on how quickly you're moving. The falls are a great place to hang out or picnic and the whole area is shaded in the early afternoon. There is parking at the trailhead, but you need to pay 2 dollars to get a parking pass.

Reviews

love this hike in the spring summer and fall. it is closed for HIGH avalanche warning in the winter. i dont recommend show shoeing up unless you have beakers so people can find your body. ITS NOT SAFE IN THE WINTER!

Very green and littered with ferns and aspens. A great hike for the family, our six year old did the whole thing and our 3 year old did half. However we went on Saturday and it was jam packed. We got there at 10 and were lucky enough to find a spot to park by chance. I would suggest either a weekday or Sunday hike (90% of the hikers would be at churchūüėČ). Bring a towel and sandals/water shoes if you have plan to go under the falls.

One of the most scenic destinations for a hike of this length, but because of that it gets quite crowded.

This is a great trail for beginner trail runners like myself. The trail is super busy anytime after 10. The sections of uphill, downhill, and flat are even spaced throughout the hike both ways. I walked the sharp uphill and jogged the flat and downhill parts. I rested behind other hikers a few times and it turned into a great interval workout. Fun trail to run with rocks and roots to navigate.

I loved this hike! It was just a perfect way to get out and see amazing things! Proposed to my wife here and now it will forever be a perfect memory!

The mountains surrounding this area are absolutely stunning. They are even more beautiful when they first start to get snow. This is a pretty hike, and the falls, are pretty. It is nice that the trail is pretty quick to get to from Provo. A nice hike for an afternoon. I would really enjoy going back and seeing it covered in ice. While you are in the area, I would recommend taking the time to drive the Aspen Loop too.

This trail is usually pretty packed, even early in the morning. I've done it twice on rainy days and that's when it was the most fun; no crowds and the clouds make for some awesome light.

Mild hike for the family, find something cooler

Snow is well packed, with plenty of room for venturing off in the powder as well. Spotted a moose.

Very pretty all times of year
