Drive up Providence Canyon in Providence, Utah until you come to the giant rock quarry. For info on the very fun road read my Providence Canyon Trek. A normal passenger car can make it all the way with some care. It is a well maintained gravel road. Once at the quarry park on top and its a short walk to each of the three falls. On the southwest side of the quarry is First Waterfall Hollow. It is directly on the dirt road.
On the south side is Second Waterfall Hollow. This one is about a 3 minute walk.
This one is also very pretty in winter.
Then on the northeast side is Box Elder Hollow Waterfall. This one is the hardest to reach. Its about 10-15 minutes hiking or you could ride an ATV or Dirt Bike right to it. I have done both. The hike climbs but is very manageable. This waterfall is very tall. I didn’t realize how tall until I saw it from an ATV trail on the other side of the canyon. From right by the falls you can only see about 40 feet or so.
I always drive up here a couple evenings a summer. It makes for a perfect picnic spot and is perfect for kids and family. If you enjoy seeing waterfalls then this is a very worthwhile drive.
