Horsetail falls

Beautiful Horsetail Falls, located 2 miles above Alpine in northern Utah Valley. These photos were all taken during a hike on April 24, 2014.

This nearly 4-mile trail is a spectacular hidden gem that boasts great views of Utah Valley and the granite face of the waterfall that are arguably the most picturesque in the area.

Getting there: From Interstate 15 in Utah County, take U.S. Highway 92 exit for Alpine. At 5300 West, turn north. At the roundabout, stay on Main Street to 200 on 200 East; 200 East turns into Grove Drive. Drive to the end of it for the trailhead.
