Utah Ranks #12 on Best Places to See Leaves Change
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:
- Acadia National Park, Maine
- Ozark Mountains, Arkansas
- Adirondack and Catskill Mountains, New York
- Traverse City, Michigan
- Black Hills, South Dakota
- Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia and North Carolina
- Kancamagus Highway, White Mountains, New Hampshire
- Pere Marquette State Park, Illinois

- Logan Canyon Scenic Byway, Utah

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!
