With the days getting shorter and cooler weather setting in, there is less yard work to be done. Why not hit the road and check out Mother Nature’s beauty? Here are a few amazing places to see the changing leaves and experience fall at its finest.
Plan a day trip up to Park City and be dazzled with the beautiful colors of fall. Red, yellow and orange will delight you as you walk around the outlet mall or along main street. Grab a bite to eat or see the colors while you zip down the Alpine slide.
The Alpine Loop is another favorite spot for looking at the leaves. This 27-mile drive runs through American Fork Canyon and offers beautiful views of Mt. Timpanogos, Sundance and Cascade Springs. Golden Aspen trees mingle with the evergreens in a spectacular seasonal display.
If you want to see autumn’s splendor on foot, head up to one of the local canyons in Salt Lake County, such as Millcreek, City Creek, and Big or Little Cottonwood canyons. Easily accessible by car, you will find plenty of places to hike, bike, picnic, or fish. From easy family-oriented hikes to trails for more experienced hikers, there is something for everyone.
Utah has so much to offer during any season but it’s hard to ignore the bursts of color on the mountains during autumn. Pack up your friends or family, jump in the car and go find your favorite canyon. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a place that isn’t beautiful to look at!
