Stewart Falls Hike via Aspen Grove, Provo Utah

Welcome to hike #4 on my Utah Waterfall tour!  

Stewart Falls Hike
via Aspen Grove (Timpanogos Trailhead)

This is a beautiful trail through an Aspen forest that ends with a three tier, 200 ‘ waterfall.  This is a very popular trail and the parking lot fills up quick.  Get there early for a spot in the parking lot and remember, this is a really popular trail, if you are looking for solitude you will not find it here ;)  There are two ways to access Stewart Falls:  The shorter route- from a chairlift on Sundance resort (for a fee) Ray's Lift to Ray's Summit, or the Aspen Grove trailhead. The trail itself is absolutely gorgeous as it winds through the woods, with stunning views of Sundance and the Uintas. 

Trailhead: (Aspen Grove route)- Mt Timpanogos Trailhead- Stewart Cascades Trail (by the bathroom).  To get to the trailhead, travel a few miles past Sundance Resort and the BYU facility. You will arrive at the Pay Station at Aspen Grove.  The trailhead is in the parking lot that is the first left past the fee station. 

Fee:  6$ per car for 3 days.  However, if you have a National Parks Pass, this works here (Uintas National Forest)!  You will be given a rearview mirror hanger for it. 

Distance: 3.8 Miles (Round trip) to the bottom of the falls and back

Level: Easy to moderate. Rolling hills, no crazy elevation gain.  Some rocky parts of the trail.  Steep section going down to the bottom of the falls.  310 ‘ of elevation gain.

Kids: Yes.  It is only 3.8 miles round trip but there were some rocky sections.  With that being said, there were a lot (a lot a lot) of kids and families on the trail.

Dogs: Yes! Dogs are allowed.
