Provo River Falls

On the way down the canyon from our hike to Diamond and Star Lakes we had a few extra minutes, so we stopped at the Provo River Falls.   I usually skip the falls because they're so popular, and this time was no exception to the crowds.  The parking lot was full and a few people had parked on the road. 
The falls are really pretty, but even better is that there are 3 different sets of the falls.  The top one is the most popular, with the number of visitors declining as you go downstream.  I really liked the middle falls too. 
We had the lowest falls to ourselves. Overall, this is a fun stop for looking, with some pools for playing in the water.  The one downside is the crowds.

Nearest City: Kamas, UT
Location: N° W°
Time Needed: 10+ minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Kid Friendly: Yes
Additional Info:  The signs along the Mirror Lake Highway for the Provo River Falls were missing, so this one would have been easy to miss.
