Hiking in Utah: Big Springs Trail

You can get to Big Springs trail by driving up Provo Canyon turn right into Vivian park and continuing up the canyon road until until you reach the turn off for Big Springs Park. At the very top of the park there’s a parking lot. There are several paths to take, a dirt road, a trail going east and a trail going west. You’ll want to take the trail to the west. To make sure you’re on the correct trail, you walk over a little stream which starts you on the correct hike. says this is a 4.2 mile out and back hike. You can turn around at any point. We didn’t ever go 2.1 miles in.

Chase and I hiked this trail a few weeks after finding out we were pregnant. Chase was worried that I would miscarry if I did any type of cardio aside from walking. That’s what they tell you during IVF – no high impact workouts.

So instead of running, I convinced him to go on a hike with me.

This is a fun, easy, family friendly hike.

There are lots of little side trails to view the stream, and you walk over several bridges the first mile.

Took our oldest on his first hike. The same hike we hiked when we found out we were pregnant with him.

There comes a point where you reach a fork in the trail. One leads to the Equestrian parking and the other leads to Big Springs Cascade Saddle.

Overall Big Springs trail is a really pretty hike, and a hike perfect for all seasons.
