See the Changing Colors of the Leaves
Park City is located in beautiful Utah and we are surrounded by tall trees in every direction. You can enjoy a little color in your life by going leaf peeping otherwise known as looking out for the different colors of the changing leaves. You can easily just step outside in town and take a look at the many trees in the area. Another great way to see the leaves is by taking a scenic drive around the area. Some of the favorites in the area include Mirror Lake Scenic Byway, Wolf Creek Highway Pass, Provo Canyon, and Alpine Loop. These paved roads are perfect for an afternoon drive as you take in the nature around you. Round trip drives can take you anywhere from 15 minutes up to an hour depending on how far you want to go.
Go Hiking or Mountain Biking
Another great way to take in the scenery surrounding Park City is with a relaxing hike in the area. The best time to hike to see the changing colors is around late September through October. Iron Mountain Trail is a popular out and back trail that has a decently steep incline. However, the trek upward will award you with panoramic views of the area.
