Stewart Falls is a 200 foot cascading waterfall located in Provo Canyon, Utah.

To get there you'll pass the Sundance Ski Resort  and Aspen Grove. You'll come to a guard gate/toll booth where you will pay the $6 for a 3-day pass. 

You'll then turn left into a large parking lot.

There are 2 bathrooms at the foot of the trail.

This is a moderate hike that should take around 1.5 to 3 hours to hike the 3.6 mile out and back trail.

When you drive through Aspen Grove, you'll see a sign and go under a pedestrian bridge.

You'll pay $6 for a 3-day pass. They also honor the America the Beautiful National Parks Pass or the Golden Passports Pass to get in too.

When we went, the lot was full so we had to park outside and didn't have to pay. We parked outside and walked in.

The trail has some shady spots, but it also has a lot of areas that are open.

On a hot day, it was nice to find a big tree for some shade to stop and drink some water and eat some snacks.

There is a steep trail that takes you up to just above the lower waterfall.

Climb that one at your own risk because it is steep.

This can be paid at the ranger station toll booth when you drive in. They also honor a National Parks Pass or a Golden Passports Pass. So if you have those, you don't have to pay to get in.

If there is no ranger on duty, you can pay with cash in an envelope at the parking lot.

When we went, the entire parking lot was full so we parked down past Aspen Grove and walked up.

We didn't have to pay  since we parked outside of the parking area.
