Freemont River Falls is located in Capitol Reef National Park. The waterfall is fed by the Fremont River, which approaches the waterfall through a 100 yard sandstone channel that makes the river far more turbulent upstream from the waterfall than it otherwise would be. The fall is not very tall, about 15 ft, but is very beautiful. It is the perfect place for people who want to cool in the fall’s pool after a long journey.
Zion Canyon Waterfalls is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Utah State. The fall is really tall and breathtaking. The falls are located in Zion Canyon and are more typically the ephemeral types that don't last much longer than a few days after heavy rain.

The Archangel Cascades are a series of cascades sheeting their way down the hard sandstone bedrock. These cascades can be found along the Left Fork of North Creek while enroute to the Subway in Zion National Park. These cascades feature stunning nature photography images.
Calf Creek Falls is a major feature of the Calf Creek Recreation Area. The Lower Calf Creek Falls is the most beautiful waterfall in the area.
