family hike to cascade springs

Cascade Springs is a series of terraced springs and small waterfalls surrounded by boardwalks and an easy, half mile interpretive trail. It's spectacular late spring through fall, and kids enjoy seeing trout in the crystal-clear water. Cascade Springs is one of the most beautiful features of the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway, which can be accessed via Heber Valley, Provo Canyon or American Fork Canyon and is open approximately late May through late October. Note: There is a $6 per vehicle fee to enter American Fork Canyon. I will bring my two young kids, so we'll go slow. http://geology.utah.gov/surveynotes/geosights/cascadesprings.htm http://trails360.com/hikes/view/cascade_springs
