Fall in Utah is simply breathtaking. There are so many fun things to do in the fall, with the color changes and the chill in the air, you will want to experience all the wonder mother nature has in store, as well as take in a few fun fall inspired events this time of year.
Here are few or our favorites:
Take a drive:
Alpine Loop- is own of the most picturesque drives in Utah. The loop connects American Fork Canyon and Provo Canyon and will provide you with an abundance of color.
Big Cottonwood Canyon- Another scenic byway that will take you a journey of fall color changes.
Sundance- take a left after the tunnel as you drive from Provo to Heber. There are signs along the way.
Please check links for difficulty levels.
Bell Canyon Reservoir– pick this hike up right in Sandy and don’t stop until you get to the lake. The colors are amazing in the fall.
Stair Gulch– In Big Cottonwood Canyon, the colors line the trail as you climb up the gulch.
Trail to Desolation Lake – behold the honey gold aspens and the pretty lake just up yonder. The hike is not a short one, so it is also a great workout.
For the kids
Gardner Village Witches– Few things say fall like the Witch display at Gardner Village. This event really is fun for all ages but younger kids really get a kick out of seeing all the creative witch displays around the village. And it is free to roam around.
Boo Lights– Hogle Zoo does an amazing job of creating Halloween themed light displays throughout the zoo. From a graveyard to the land of spiders, kids will enjoy all the sights…and sounds.
The Crazy Corn Maze- Just like the name implies, be prepared to enter a corn maze of fun with many twists and turns over 8 acres of corn.
