Fall is a beautiful time in Park City but in the blink of an eye it will be winter so get outside and enjoy the autumn scenery with these scenic drives and hikes! 

Best Scenic Drives

Guardsman Pass

If you are looking for a short drive (just 14 miles) from Park City, you can’t beat Guardsman Pass.

Alpine Scenic Loop

There are not many places more beautiful in the fall than the Alpine Loop Scenic Road in northern Utah.

Mirror Lake Highway

The Mirror Lake Scenic Byway is one of the highest roads in the state of Utah, cresting at 10,687 feet at Bald Mountain Pass.


Best Hikes to take in the foliage

Farm Trail (easy)

Great for the entire family, this easy paved trail takes you through Park City’s historic McPolin Barn off of Highway 224.

Round Valley Trail System (easy-moderate)

Can be accessed from several trail-heads, including Quinn’s Junction and Old Ranch Road.

Silver Lake Trail (more strenuous)

Starting at Deer Valley Resort’s Silver Lake Lodge the trail then winds its way up Bald Mountain climbing 1,300 feet in a two-mile stretch.

Fantasy Ridge (strenuous)

This six-mile trail winds through aspen groves and across a ridge-line to Canyons Resort’s highest peak at 9,900 feet.


Happy Fall, y’all!
