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.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Overall rating: 

Crowded, but beautiful

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 church😉). Bring a towel and sandals/water shoes if you have plan to go under the falls.

Beautiful Destination

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

Trail Run Review

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.
