The autumn months are just a few weeks away, where we will start to enjoy cooler temperatures and milder weather. We will also start to see the leaves starting to turn colors, creating a stunning autumn backdrop. So what are the best things to do in Park City in the fall?
Because the fall colors create gorgeous scenery, there’s nothing better than taking a hike through the many area trails. One favorite is the Mid-Mountain Trail that will take you to an elevation of 8,000 feet and will let you enjoy a hike between the Canyons Resort and Deer Valley. There are also another 400 miles of hiking and biking trails in the area to enjoy.
Take a scenic drive to enjoy the weather and the views. The scenic Mirror Lake Drive in the Uinta Mountains is just a few minutes away, as are many other great drives throughout the area including the Alpine Loop at nearby Sundance Resort.
Don’t Miss the Fall Harvest
The weekly Farmer’s Market held each Wednesday boasts a bountiful harvest each week. Here you’ll find all sorts of great fresh, local produce including tomatoes, corn, and much more. It’s a great way to get a true flavor of tasty local produce. You can also find other great offerings such as bread, jams, jellies, honey and so much more. It’s a great place to get all the fixings for a delicious fall barbeque.
Take a Sunrise Balloon Ride
As the temperatures start to fall, the skies start to fill with colorful hot air balloons. Stop just waking up and seeing the balloons in the sky — go out and enjoy Park City from above. You’ll get to soar high above, enjoying the scenery resplendent in autumnal colors, as well as the cool, crisp air.
Take a Stroll Through Nature
There’s nothing better than taking a nature tour during the fall months. There are all sorts of options available including lift-served hiking, tours of the Swaner Nature Preserve, gondola rides and more.
