Utah Waterfalls are just one aspect of a variety of scenery in the state’s vast and rugged expanse of desert wilderness. Just by pursuing waterfalls in the Beehive state, we’ve managed to find slot canyons, natural arches, desert oases, and even canyons with vertical sandstone cliffs. Yet when I look back at some of the places where we found such waterfalls, I’m amazed by how they can exist in such desert climates.
Like the Grand Canyon in Northern Arizona, many of the waterfalls found in this unforgiving landscape result from springs while others are of the ephemeral variety. Still, there are those waterfalls that pose as not only scenic assets but obstacles during slot canyon adventures. Further to the north, there are mountain ranges that supply its waterfalls with melting snow. In fact, snow was abundant enough in these areas that Salt Lake City hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 2002.
Indeed, ever since I first saw the alluring beauty of Utah in 2001, I have been sucked in ever since and have made a few repeated trips to the Nature within the state. Obviously, we will continue to return to Utah in pursuit of its waterfalls, but in the mean time, have a look at our survey of waterfalls in Utah so far.
As you can see from the waterfall map above, we’ve seen quite a few Utah Waterfalls throughout the state. We even have enough of a sampling to have a legitimate list of Top 10 Best Utah Waterfalls. And as customary to all the waterfalls we share on this website, we provide detailed trail descriptions, driving directions, maps, telling photographs, nearby attractions, etc. so that you can use our experiences as a resource for your own trip planning purposes.
