Utah is glorious in the fall! The leaves change to crimson, gold, orange, and more in the most stunning display! The timing of peak colors varies a bit each year, but it usually falls in the last few weeks of September through mid-October. The highest elevations usually start before the valley.
There are endless scenic drives and hikes to see fall leaves, but some outshine the rest. Here is a list of amazing places to see fall leaves, starting with the areas that begin changing first (usually maples):
Early Fall Color Areas
Some areas change earlier that the rest. This is usually about two weeks before the color spreads to the other areas.
Another early color change spot is Green Pond Trail east of Ogden.
