Welcome to the first week of Spring in Utah Valley! The flowers are starting to come up and it's going to be in the high 50s all weekend. It's the perfect time to get out and explore the mountains, lakes and canyons. Not all the trails are open, but there are some really good ones just waiting for you to find them. Start with Y Mountain trail. It is 1.2 miles long and climbs 980 feet with 13 switchbacks. Its a good hike, but not to hard for the whole family. If you are looking for something a little slower try the Provo River trail by Bridal Veil Falls. They are amazing in all seasons!
If you are looking for something inside, try one of these great plays this weekend.
