Grotto Falls Along the Nebo Loop, Utah

Grotto Falls is a surprising little gem along the Nebo Loop road in Payson Canyon. I had never heard of it before, and simply took the short trail on a whim one day. It's quite popular with the locals, and this panorama shows a shallow dam made by some previous visitors. The autumn colors in Payson Canyon can be spectacular, and hiking and camping opportunities abound. The Nebo Loop Road passes below its namesake, Mt. Nebo, the tallest peak in the Wasatch Range at 11,929 ft. (3,636m).- Martin van Hemert
