“A family-friendly hike leading to the breathtaking Stewart Cascades (Stewart Falls) on the east side of Mount Timpanogos.”— Taylor Hoj
Family Friendly The trail is not too long, nor technical. Many families regularly take their children on this trail. It is, however, advised that parents keep a close eye on their kids, especially near the waterfall.
Parking at Aspen Grove requires an entry fee of $6 for a three-day pass which is paid at a toll booth on the Alpine Scenic Loop. If you are tight on cash, you can park a little ways down the road just below BYU's Aspen Grove Lodge on the side of the road, then walk up the road to the trailhead.
There is also an alternative trail that comes up to the falls from Sundance Ski Resort.
Once at the falls, some will venture up to the base of the first tier of the falls, however, the trail to this area is on a steep slant and this is not recommended. Once you've enjoyed the falls, turn back and return the way that you came to return to the trailhead.
