Bridal Veil Falls | Provo Canyon

Ghost Falls Hike

Ghost Falls is a nice little hike. The first time we visited Ghost Falls, the leaves were changing and the weather was nice and cool. Unfortunately, we had a bad experience with it. First, the directions we got from the Internet were very bad. They led us to two different places-- both…
