Reds are coming on!

 

 
The red colors in the Valley are finally coming on!  Still in patchwork fashion, but pretty nonetheless!  We took a hike on the Skyline Trail from Pineview Reservoir on Friday. Glorious!
 
Follow Powder Mountain and Snowbasin on Instagram or Facebook for color changes at the higher elevations.  On weekends, ride the gondola at Snowbasin to get up high fast!
 
Scenic Drive 1:  Ogden Canyon (Monte Cristo) (Utah State Route 39).  
Along this drive, you will see a few beautiful waterfalls. To get up Ogden Canyon, in Ogden take 12th Street and head Eastbound towards the mountains. It will take you right up the Canyon. You will reach Pineview Reservoir, Eden, and also a Monastary with gift shop east of Huntsville. From here you can head to Logan.
 
Scenic Drive 2:  Trapper’s Loop. 
This scenic backway runs between Huntsville and Mountain Green along the eastern side of the Wasatch range. Like the Ogden River Scenic Byway, this route is also wonderful as the leaves change colors. This scenic routes can be combined with others on the map into a partial loop by traveling I-84 through the Weber Canyon, which is itself a very attractive route.
 
 
HOTLINE
