Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Natural ground-fed spring water cascades down the grassy hills and under the boardwalks and bridges of this aptly named destination. A small outpost in an otherwise undeveloped area smack in the middle of the central Wasatch range, wooden pathways and paved asphalt meander around the area and loop around the springs themselves. There are benches to view the stunning surroundings and take in the fresh elevated air. Mount Timpanogos and several other peaks sit in the distance while hummingbirds buzz around. Moose frequent the area and occasionally walk in the falls. There are great wildflowers, and the whole scene has a fantastical quality to it. The only drawback is that it is small, and because so many people can access it, there's often a crowd. Despite the crowds, planning a your trip to avoid holidays and weekends will allow for some solitude. It won't take long to see, so take your time and it soak in. The sounds are just as soothing as the sights.

Cascade Springs is easily access from both the Heber Valley and Utah City. Nearby attractions include Scout Falls, Stewart Falls, the town of Sundance, Tibble Fork Reservoir and the always scenic Alpine Loop. There is a $6 fee to access this area from the Alpine Loop.
