Prime Time For Fall Colors

Today is the first official day of fall. Trees and brush in northern Utah are responding right on schedule, putting on their multi-hued coats as they start tumbling to the ground.

People enjoy driving Utah's canyons at this time of year, taking in the awe-inspiring displays of color and light. The next few weeks will be prime time to enjoy this stunning annual extravaganza.

Colors in northern Utah will probably peak during the first or second weeks of October. The display will move south and reach lower elevations as fall progresses. Zion Park area vegetation will wear fall colors in late October and early November.

See our Fall Color Tours page for information about scenic drives.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this new article recommending fall drives, hikes and bike rides, mostly in northern Utah.
