It is going to be a beautiful Fall weekend. The leaves have changed in the canyon and the sun is still shining. Now is a perfect time to get outside and enjoy what makes Utah Valley special. Start with the Alpine Loop Scenic Backway on SR-92. You can enter the loop from American Fork Canyon or Provo Canyon past Sundance Resort. You can enjoy vistas of Mt. Timpanogos and impressive aspen groves. There are campgrounds and picnic area available. Once you get out of the car enjoy a great hike into the Lone Peak Wilderness area.
Another great option for Fall colors is the Nebo Loop Scenic Byway. To get there take I-15 to Payson Utah. The Byway winds between the cities of Payson and Nephi. The road climbs 9,000 feet, taking you to stunning views of Utah Valley from the south end and Mt. Nebo, the highest peak in the rugged and beautiful Wasatch Range.
