Cascade Springs is a natural collection of streams that join into a cascading garden collection of pools, small falls and lush vegetation. It has excellent walk ways over the pools for close observation without damaging the natural beauty.

We nearly turned back due to the badly rutted dirt road, but were glad we persevered. We would have stayed longer, but rain was in the forecast and we didn't want to get stuck. We saw beautiful fall colors, refreshing pools and lovely small waterfalls....More

A beautiful drive through the Aspen groves to arrive. Bubbling and tumbling water on the one mile loop. On a hot day I would suggest going early because the upper loop has little shade. BE ADVISED. We packed a lovely picnic lunch to enjoy but...More

Cascade Springs is located on the Alpine Loop near, you guessed it, Alpine, Utah. The drive to the springs is especially beautiful in May when the wild flowers have started blooming. Once at the springs, you either walk down a trail or stairs. At the...More

You can reach the Springs by driving 7 mi off the alpine loop to the trail head. Since it is part of the national forest you have to pay a day fee of $6 unless you have a senior or interagency pass. The road to...More
