Hike to Stewart Falls

Utah Stewart Falls Trailhead

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.

Awesome hike for a rainy day

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.

Great for Beginner Snowshoeing

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

Pretty hike - definitely gets crowded. Go on a rainy day to avoid everyone and enjoy the hike up in the clouds.

The falls are a popular location on weekends. To avoid crowds, head out on weekdays or get there before 10- most visitors are families and college students, so on early mornings, the trail should be pretty empty!
