Cascade Springs

Alpine Loop (Hwy 92)
Uinta National Forest, Utah
May to October

Cascade Springs is a beautiful little spot north of the Mt. Timpanogos Wilderness Area in the Provo area. Seven million gallons of water a day flow down a series of limestone terraces and pools among lush vegetation. The route to the springs is also very attractive, particularly during the fall. 

The access road to Cascade Springs is generally open between May and late October. There is parking and restrooms but be prepared to pay a day use fee. The access road SR 92 is closed during the winter months. The road is generally accessible from May - October - you can find out specific road closure information here: UDOT.

Directions: There are three routes to get to Cascade Springs.

  • From Interstate 15, about 20 miles: Take Exit 284 in the Highland/Lehi area and travel east on State Route 92 to American Fork Canyon, where you’ll pay a $3 toll. Drive up the canyon past Timpanogos Cave National Monument and turn right at the South Fork junction. About five miles from the junction turn left onto the Cascade Springs Scenic Drive and continue for another five miles to the spring’s trailhead.
  • From Provo/Orem (State Route 189), about 20 miles: From Provo or Orem, drive east on State Route 189 up Provo Canyon and turn left onto State Route 92 (the South Fork road) towards Sundance Ski Resort and the BYU Alumni Camp. Just after the BYU camp you will pay a $3 toll to continue up SR 92. About three miles from the BYU camp turn right onto the Cascade Springs Scenic Drive and continue for another five miles to the spring’s trailhead.
  • From Heber City, about 12 miles: From the junction of State Routes 40/189 and 113 in Heber, travel west about three miles to Midway and turn left (south) staying on SR 113. After about two miles, turn right to access the Wasatch Mountain State Park. Drive southwest through the State Park about five miles until you come to the boundary of the Uinta National Forest. The Cascade Springs trailhead access road is just beyond that. There is no toll, but the road through the State Park is gravel.
