Scenic Drives for Fall Colors


Fall is definitely my favorite season. When I moved to Utah Valley six years ago, I was mesmerized by sweater weather, pumpkin patches, and the changing of the colors. Utah Valley is full of incredible sceneries during the months of September and October.

Take advantage of this beautiful time of year with a scenic drive through Utah Valley’s mountains and canyons. Here are a few of my favorites:

Alpine Loop

One of Utah Valley’s most popular attractions, the Alpine Loop is absolutely breathtaking. This 20-mile scenic byway weaves through American Fork Canyon. To see even more gorgeous sights, stop for a lift ride at Sundance Mountain Resort. The Alpine Loop costs $6 for a three-day pass.

Nebo Loop

The Nebo Loop is the Alpine Loop’s lesser known sister but to the locals, Nebo Loop is the best drive around. The Nebo Loop has several fun stops such as Payson Lakes, the Devil’s Kitchen, and the Grotto Trail.

Hobble Creek Canyon

Beyond Springville is Hobble Creek Canyon, another wonderful place to see the beautiful views that fall has to offer. The road runs through the right fork of Hobble Creek Canyon up to Strawberry Reservoir.
