Marie & Reed's guide to Provo's outdoors

Close to the apartment
Nearby and beautiful paved flat trail for walking, running, biking. Extends 16 miles from Vivian Park in Provo Canyon to Utah Lake State Park, with access all along the way. We love to park at the trailhead at 345 N 2050 W (5 minute drive from the apartment) and head west on the trail toward the lake, or when we want to get into the canyon we park the car at Mt. Timpanogos Park (15 minute drive).

Provo's hidden gem. Enjoy tons of greenspace, the Provo River, the duck pond, the nature trail, and the playground for the kids. Right next to the Provo River Trail.

The Mountains are Calling
Skiing, hiking, dining, ziplining, mountain biking, outdoor theatre productions...and it's where we had our first date and later got engaged when we were BYU students! If you’re here for a summer or fall full moon, don’t miss the full moon chairlift rides—we go every October. Make Sundance an entire day, a stop while you drive the Alpine Loop, or a dinner destination.

The iconic Provo hike. Short but really steep. Great view of the valley. bit.ly/hiketheY

Gorgeous drive around Mt. Timpanogos. You'll pass Bridal Veil Falls, Sundance, the Stewart Falls trailhead, Timpooneke Trailhead (most popular route up Timpanogos) Tibble Fork, and Timpanogos Cave National Monument while taking in some of the best mountain views anywhere. Take a picnic lunch, pull off the road, and enjoy the mountains. Closed November through mid-May due to snow.

One of our favorite family hikes near Provo. The last little bit is steep, and we carry our twin toddlers on our backs. Amazing view of the valley. bit.ly/buffalopeak

One of the most popular hikes around Provo. Walk a well-used, relatively flat 3.2 mile round-trip path to Stewart Falls. bit.ly/stewartfalls You can also hike to the summit of Mt. Timpanogos from the same trailhead. Plan an entire day for that. bit.ly/hiketimp

Provo's most accessible waterfall—just pull off the road in Provo Canyon. You can stay in the parking lot, or cross the bridge over the Provo River to get right up to the falls.
