Came here for the winter and stayed for the rest of the year is a common saying here in Park City, but what about the other three seasons? As fall falls upon us, we have a few reasons we happen to love fall almost as much, if not more than some of the other well-known season.
Did you know that Park City has many fabulous fall features to fall in love with? Do you know the weather in the fall is brisk and cool, which is perfect for mountain biking? Did you also know that trails which are closed in the spring due to snowmelt, are often the best trails to hike and bike in the fall? Dogs love fall too, with many pooches enjoying hikes with their owners in cooler fall temperatures. Did you know that fall has as many, and sometimes more events, than summer?
Enjoy refreshing, crisp temperatures, mountain fresh fall air, and an unrivaled fall color palette in Park City from September to November! Look around at the Aspens showing off their golden new color. Find trees changing their hues to reds, oranges, and purples. Find a fall event to please your soul from mild to wild!
