Fall in Sundance, Utah

Our local news and weather station put together a list of the top 5 places to see the fall colors. We were happy to see our favorite hike to Stewart Falls in Sundance, UT made it on the list. To read their article click here KSL article. There is nothing more breathtaking than the fire red maples, golden aspens, tall deep green pines all against the rugged terrain/backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. There are many great car rides you will read about to take in all the colors but there is no replacement for a nice hike in the fall amongst all the colors with a waterfall as your destination.

Our favorite direction to send you for great colors, a beautiful drive or your route back to SLC to fly back home is the Alpine Loop on Highway :

Alpine Loop – You can start this drive either at the mouth of American Fork Canyon or Provo Canyon on U.S. 189. From Provo Canyon turn up U.S. 89 towards the Sundance Resort and continue on past the Ranger Station. The windy roads bring you to the summit where you can veer off towards Cascade Springs where you can park and walk around the natural springs looking out towards Cascade Peak to the southwest. Unless you have 4-wheel drive and feeling adventurous, we recommend turning around and heading back up to the summit where you can venture down the back side of the loop towards American Fork Canyon.                                                                  

The Alpine Loop is open from approximately late May to late October. Snow closes part of the road the rest of the year. Not recommended for vehicles more than 30 feet long. Entirely paved.
