COVID-19 RELATED UPDATE: The State of Utah’s phased approach to lifting stay-at-home restrictions allows businesses to resume operations under state, county and municipal health guidelines while allowing each business to determine their own timeline and policies. Please refer to the State and County guidelines at http://www.webermorganhealth.org/coronavirus/ for a complete list of recommendations and requirements.

We’ve mapped out the ultimate fall road trip around the Ogden area that takes in some of the best autumn leaf viewing possible. For an even richer experience, park the car at any of the dozens of trailheads along the way and hike or bike your way to a little one-on-one time with Mother Nature. Historically, the leaves hit their peak around Ogden on Sept. 24, but any time over the next 3-4 weeks is the perfect time to enjoy the changing of the seasons.

  • Turn East on 3100 North
