10 Gorgeous Frozen Waterfalls In Utah That Must Be Seen To Be Believed
Utah’s dry climate doesn’t lend well to waterfalls, but the few we have are really beautiful. What’s prettier than a cascading Utah waterfall? A frozen one! Take a look at these stunning wintertime falls.
1. Weeping Rock, Zion National Park
Weeping rock's tears rarely freeze, but when they do it makes for a spectacular photo.
2. Waterfall at Waterfall Canyon, Ogden
A short hike from the 29th Street trailhead yields this pretty waterfall. The rocks around these falls are dangerous in the summer (people have been seriously injured), but in the winter, they're definitely no joke - stay on the ground to witness this frozen beauty.
3. Bridal Veil Falls, Provo Canyon
Bridal Veil Falls is Utah's most photographed waterfall, and it's a real draw for ice climbers. These falls typically freeze in the winter, and are super accessible (there's literally a parking lot at their base), so you should definitely check them out.
4. Provo River Falls, Mirror Lake Scenic Byway
It's hard to see the frozen Provo River Falls, because the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway closes when the snow gets deep. It's a shame, because this waterfall might be Utah's most gorgeous.
5. Frozen Waterfall in John's Canyon
Red rocks and frozen waterfalls? Rare, but true!
6. Stewart Falls, near Sundance
Stewart Falls is near Sundance, so the next time you head for the resort, make sure you take a look at this frozen natural wonder.
7. Adam's Canyon, Layton
Here's another frozen gem you probably won't see this winter - the trail typically closes from December to April. It's a five mile hike (and a strenuous one, at that), but this photographer managed the feat.
8. Bonneville Glen/Miller Park, Salt Lake City
Even tiny waterfalls are magical in the winter! This one is located at Bonneville Glen in Miller Park. Visit this winter at 1500 East 1050 South in Salt Lake City.
9. Donut Falls, Big Cottonwood Canyon
Utah's favorite family hike is great for snowshoeing, too. The payoff is this frosty fall!
10. Upper Emerald Pools, Zion National Park
Zions' Emerald Pools (both upper and lower) are popular during high season, but they're truly magical in the winter. The park is quiet, and the falls are often frozen. Be careful - the path is super icy.
Aren’t these waterfalls amazing in the winter?
