Fall Colors Are Coming On In Utah's High Country

Leaves have started to turn red on trees on Utah's northern mountains. It is still early - the fall colors are just getting started. During the next several weeks the colors will become more intense and varied, as more trees and shrubs join the festivities. Burgundy, gold and auburn hues will soon cover the mountainsides.

It is hard to predict timing, but I'll go out on a limb and say the colors will peak in northern Utah during the final days of September.

The show starts at higher elevations and gradually moves down into the valleys. It also moves south over time. It will probably be late October before colors are prime in southern Utah valleys.

Several Utah byways provide excellent opportunities to view fall colors. Good fall drives can be found in both northern and southern Utah, along high-elevation roads that wind through steep mountain canyons but also along less demanding routes at lower elevations.

This page suggests some of our better fall driving tours.
