Southern Utahns are already heading up to Cedar City to catch a glimpse of the beautiful changing of the leaves, but there is another place in the state that holds the best views.  

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, Logan Canyon Scenic Byway is the place to see the leaves change. It’s a drive for southern Utah residents but for those who love all things Fall related, it's worth it. Plus, there are some unique ways to see the reds, yellows, and browns. You can do horseback riding, hiking, biking, and even camping in the area.  

Here is the full list of the best places in the U.S. to see the Fall colors: 

  1. Acadia National Park, Maine 
  2. Ozark Mountains, Arkansas 
  3. Adirondack and Catskill Mountains, New York 
  4. Traverse City, Michigan 
  5. Black Hills, South Dakota 
  6. Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia and North Carolina 
  7. Kancamagus Highway, White Mountains, New Hampshire 
  8. Pere Marquette State Park, Illinois 
  9. Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia 
  10. Jackson, Wyoming 
  11. Connecticut River Valley, S.E. Connecticut 
  12. Logan Canyon Scenic Byway, Utah 
  13. Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio 
  14. Buckhorn Lake State Park, Kentucky 
  15. Vogel State Park and Chattahoochee National Forest, Georgia 
  16. Door County, Wisconsin 
  17. Poconos, Pennsylvania 
  18. Green Mountain Byway, Vermont 
  19. Gatlinburg & Smoky Mountains, Tennessee 
  20. The Berkshires, Massachusetts
  21. Taos, New Mexico

The leaves are actually red, yellow, and brown all year long but due to the green chlorophyll, they present in green most of the time. When there is less sunlight and the weather starts to cool down, tree growth slows and with it the green chlorophyll, the Farmer’s Almanac said.  


Happy Fall Y’all!
