Wonderful winter hike. spikes are perfect right now. We saw a moose on Thursday.

One of the best snowshoe hikes in Provo Canyon. There was a ton of snow today. I wore my spikes, but wished I had snowshoes. I usually do this as a loop, turning left at the Big Springs sign, heading through a couple of meadows. I often see turkey up here.

13/Jan. Pretty views. Easy to see the trail. However, only 3/4 of the way has a trail, the rest will require some extra work. The snow is packed, even in hard to go places and the trail is wide enough to hike. Did not have snow pads, only winter boots and poles. Was sunny and no wind. Very silent. Many wild life trails. Enjoying hike!

easy hike, big payoff. trail is packed the whole way. spikes were all that was necessary.

The trail was traveled enough and the snow was so packed that we never used our snowshoes. Hiked a little past the Mud Springs Trail junction. Started just as it was getting light and watch the sunrise lite up the mountains behind us. The morning light made the mountains look incredable

This was an easier than moderate hike in my opinion, and an absolutely amazing winter destination.

Stunning day. Snow crampons were the ticket. Rainbows (Snowbows) around every corner. Falls were mostly frozen. Exquisitely beautiful.

Really enjoyed this hike. We hiked it in December with snow. The trail is used by snow shoes which made it accessible for regular snow boots. We were very glad that we brought ski poles as it made a huge difference. Crampons would have been nice, snow shoes would have been a bit much since it was so packed. The frozen fall at the end was spectacular as were the views enroute. We were not solitary but not so crowded that it was a problem in winter. We found a spot near the end to slide down on our rumps to cut off a switchback. Added excitement.

A classic, and crowded for a reason. It’s basically flat, can be done in an hour or so, and has great views of Provo canyon and the back side of Timp. Plus, there’s a waterfall at the end! I’ve done this hike as a Cub Scout, with cub scouts, and as an easy date. Very popular, so don’t expect to be alone on the trail. Nice for snowshoeing, though!

Hiked up hoping to get above the smog, but this wasn't quite high enough. Trail was mostly in good shape, just a bit wet and muddy in a few places, otherwise you were walking on gravel and a little bit of packed snow.

On the way back down, we saw a handful of Bighorn Sheep about a quarter mile from the trail head. Very cool!

Wow. Wow. Wow. We hiked on 12/1 and there was 2-3' of snow the entire length of the trail. There was a small 2' wide compacted path the entire route so it was nice and easy to follow the path in regular waterproof hiking boots. Saw plenty of hikers with snow shoes and plenty without. It was fine without. The views on this hike are absolutely insane. Honestly the waterfall was great, but frozen over, but the valley and mountain views are top notch. We are here on vacation from Florida and have so far done 3 hikes (Adam's Canyon and Waterfall Canyon near Ogden) and this was our favorite of the three. Unbelievable.

Awesome views once you get on the top spine of the hike about a mile from the summit. Mount timp looks amazing from here and you can see the Wasatch front for miles in both directions

Good hike, steep and rocky but definitely worth the view. I think hiking it in the fall would make for a little bit of a prettier hike, but it wasn’t too bad.

I would recommend this hike in the fall. Not much color now all the trees have lost their leaves and there grass is brown. But for this area the grass is brown most the summer to. Great views of the valley.

Great hike! We went on 9/18 and the trail was still perfectly fine to hike. Some points had snow and were a little slick, especially right in the beginning, but we were just fine in regular hiking shoes. The falls are partially frozen and gorgeous! The trail was not very busy either. We brought our dog, and she had a blast. This trail is rated moderate with some up and down hill, but probably pretty easy for more experienced hikers.

Are you in shape? Let’s find out! Total workout! Down hill in fall sucks due to all the toe grabbers covered with leaves and steep trail . Bring a sack lunch and water.

Fun hike, beautiful sights and great falls.

A great trail with beautiful views and a waterfall at the end. To avoid the crowds, go early.

Nice length (not too short or too long) and varied steepness. We spent time at the falls and hiked with a baby and it took us 2.5 hours

My husband and I completed this hike on October 21. We started around 10:30 and were surprised to find there were only a couple people we encountered on the way their, and a few on the way back (maybe everyone gone for fall break?).

The trail is lovely and not too steep. We were a couple weeks late on peak fall foiliage, but everything was beautiful just the same.

Our only regret is that when we got to the waterfall, we scrambled down to the river. Instead of scrambling back up, however, we took a long, meandering way down that added a significant chunk of time to our hike. Next time, we'll have to figure out a better way to get back up to the main trail.

The quiet, beautiful morning was well worth the 90-minute drive for us. A must-do hike for northern Utah!

Great hike! Save time to explore once you get to the falls; there is a nice trail that leads up towards the top of you don’t mind being adventurous and climbing a little.

Lovely hike. So beautiful the entire way to the Falls, and the Falls themselves are awesome.

Hiked up Dry Canyon to Big Baldy Saturday 13 Oct, beautiful day for hiking, started at 10am finished at 1:30pm. Last mile to saddle between Big Baldy and Timp is straight uphill, a heart pounder. Got our feet soaking wet coming down from the snow melt stream in the middle of the trail. Busy trail passed more than 8 groups.

Love Sundance and Stewart Falls.
