Late September is one of the best times to see the beauty of fall color around Utah. The gorgeous leaves are at peak fall foliage and have not left the trees barren just yet. Like most in Utah, we at Innovation Simple love to seek out the inspiration, relaxation and satisfaction that comes from getting out in the beautiful Utah landscape. What better time to enjoy the views than when the hillsides are bursting with an array of exquisite golds, oranges, browns and yellows. Whether its a peaceful drive, a pleasant bike ride or a quiet walk, here are some of the top places in Utah to enjoy the magnificent autumn colors as we come to the end of fall.
