Waterfalls Trails

Hike

Grotto Falls is a short trail into the Payson Canyon. Visitors will enjoy a quick walk through the woods along the creek, as they cross over several bridges and make their way towards the Grotto. This hike can be enjoyed by all ages and is very popular in the summer time. When hikers reach the waterfall, they will be able to crawl around and explore the little grotto that has been formed by the waterfall. 

Though very popular to hike in the summer, Nebo Loop (the road to take in order to reach the falls) is very well known for its spectacular fall colors. The trail is usually closed in the winter due to high amounts of snow.
