This autumn, see the brightly colored leaves by taking the scenic route through one of the valley’s winding canyons. In fact, why not make it a day? Pack a warm sweater, sip apple cider and enjoy the crisp weather. The changing leaves fall quickly, so don’t miss the chance to experience all of fall.
This 32-mile byway really shows off Utah’s diverse landscape. Don’t miss the views of the Devil’s Kitchen, the 11,877-foot peak of Mt. Nebo and the glistening Payson lakes. You can also stretch your legs on one of the Nebo Loop trailheads.
The 24-mile long Alpine Scenic Loop is home to some of Utah’s best-known landmarks. You can see the fall colors while hiking all (or some) of the 11,752 feet of Mt. Timpanogos or take a picnic and relax in the cool breeze at Tibble Fork Reservoir or Cascade Springs.
Provo Canyon has several easy-access parks that are perfect viewpoints for watching the leaves change from green to red — try Nunn’s Park, Vivian Park or Bridal Veil Fall Park. Or skip the “parking” all together and watch the scenery while riding the Heber Valley Railroad.
