Explore Scenic Cascade Springs

Added by Eric Bennett

Very peaceful and easily accessible. Ideal for photography due to easy access to the springs. Beautiful fall colors.

One of the most photogenic spots of the Timpanogos Canyon. If you take the Alpine loop you will see a sign to turn off and go to Cascade Springs. It's about a 15 minute drive from there. The parking lot is right next to the springs. The best time to go is during the fall when the leaves are changing colors, this place explodes with intense reds, yellows, and oranges.

There are lots of opportunities to get shots of the flowing water coming out of the springs here and sometimes lots of wildlife like birds, deer, goats, and moose. This is also a great place to chill throughout the evening, have a picnic, and take the family.

Long Drive Short Walk

Pretty yes but you drive for a while even just from Heber and there's only so much walking around you can do. A nice place to go with your grandmother
