Destination: Big Springs
Location: South Fork Provo Canyon
Time: 1:30 pm
Temp: 46 degrees

To Get Here: Take Hwy 189 (Provo Canyon Road) headed north.  Drive approx 4 miles until Vivian Park, turn Right.  Drive approximately 5 miles, almost to the end of the road.  Park is on the Right, look for the above sign.
Big Springs Hike is fairly easy with little elevation gain.  What I like about it is that you walk along a river which provides no end of entertainment for my now three year old Big E.  The weather was so warm when we went I was tempted to not put him in snow pants but I’m glad I did.  The sun was melting everything so bare spots became mud and the trail was still icy.  The full hike is 1.8 miles to the Big Spring, the source of the flowing river you walk by.  We just stayed on the bottom part of the trail since it stuck by the water.   Big E loved throwing rocks into the water and trying to break the ice.  Little g loved sleeping in the moby wrap.  I loved being outside.
