Fall is a beautiful time of year; some might say the most beautiful time of year. With crisp air, changing leaves, and the holiday momentum building up for the closing months of the year. It’s no wonder so many love fall. We created a bucket list to gear up for the fall season to put to the test from corn mazes and apple picking to college football!
Explore corn mazes
Fall isn’t quite fall without corn mazes, hayrides and pumpkin patches. Opening day for most Corn Mazes are September 23rd
McCoards- They also have zombie paintball, monster mystery game, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, and a Halloween zip line!
Cornbelly’s- Thanksgiving Point’s corn maze and fall adventures, it has sooo much stuff, you’ll just have to go to see it all for yourself! They have tons of family activities during the day and plenty of haunting events at night for college students and adults alike!
HeeHaw Farms- Opens September 30th, they have pumpkins, hayrides, petting farms, pony rides, corn maze-of course, and a haunted hayride ooOOOooo, and much more!
UVU’s Electric Maze- This isn’t a corn maze but deserves an honorable mention. This maze has lights, music, art and runs September 15th-24th!
Take a drive
Nebo Loop- great if you are more South Utah County and want to take a leisurely drive through beautiful fall foliage
Alpine Loop- Great if you are more Northern Utah County but don't want to go all the way to Salt Lake
Catch a Football game
Bleed blue at a BYU football game! Be sure to grab a Cougar Tail!
Go Apple Picking
Allred Orchards- Honeycrisp, Gala, Blondee and Zester are up for the grabs right now and more varieties to come in late September through early November.
McMullin Orchards- Gala, Ginger Gold, and Honey Crisp apples are ripe for the picking right now at McMullin Orchards if you want to get a head start on fall apple picking!
Crandall’s Fruit Farm- Has a good variety of apples from Red Delicious to Jonathan, Fuji, and more. They also have pumpkins!
Hike or Mountain Bike to see fall colors
Hiking is a great way to see the fall colors and enjoy the grandeur that pictures really don’t do justice to. Here are a few lesser known hikes that will be a little less crowded than the more popular ones like Rock Canyon and Stewart Falls (though they are still beautiful are more crowded).
Payson Canyon, Spanish Fork Canyon, Hobble Creek Canyon, Provo and American Fork Canyons are all great places to mountain bike and hike to really have the full fall color experience.
Head to a local farmer’s market,
Farmer's markets are a great way to get fresh fruits and veggies to feed your family.
Post your autumn pictures on social media and be sure to include #visitutahvalley!
