Fall Leaves In Utah: Our Suggestions

Fall is in full force here in Utah, and we have some of the most beautiful canyons and mountains for viewing the Fall leaves. Below are places that we recommend. The directions on the map are directions from our shop in Kearns.

Butterfield Canyon and Middle Canyon
Mark and Paul highly recommend Butterfield Canyon. Take SR 111 (Bacchus Highway) southbound until you reach where the road turn eastbound. This is where you will turn Right to go up Butterfield Canyon. Zoom out on the map below, and you can also see that this canyon goes over the top of the mountain, into Middle Canyon, and out to Tooele, which is also a favorite spot that Mark recommends.
