How to get there – put in Google Maps
Go on Provo Canyon Road past Bridal Veil Falls and turn off the road a minute or two after Bridal Veil Falls at Olmstead Diversion Dam. It’s a right turn off Canyon Road and then a sharp right turn. Head south for a minute or two and there is a parking lot.
The most unknown of all the parks up Provo Canyon. This park is actually part of the Uinta National Forest. This spot was named for the smaller waterfall you can see up Provo Canyon (past Bridal Veil Falls), and you can see it in the distance from this location. This park would be a good spot to try to catch a last-minute fire pit on a holiday weekend since it is not as well-known. To reach this park you must travel up the little side road past Bridal Veils Park.
Fire Pits: 5 metal rings
Picnic Tables with Grills: Yes
Bathroom: Yes – port-o-potties
Covered Pavilions: No
Water Access (next to the river, creek or pond): Yes
Provo Parkway Access: No (you have to backtrack down to Bridal Veils to access the parkway)
Trailheads: Upper Falls Trail is located directly across this park (next to the Provo Parkway). However, the bridge to access this trailhead is closed. If you want to hike this trail you have to backtrack down to Bridal Veils Park and walk up the parkway. We tried this trail a few months ago and to be honest, it wasn’t much to look at up close. There is lots of graffiti and litter along this trail and the falls are marred by a concrete slab. I prefer the view of Upper Falls from the Upper Falls Park.
