Janine Brandt | 09.28.21

There’s no doubt that soothing strolls and scenic drives are a great way to find fantastic fall foliage. But if you prefer chasing thrills over colorful trees, you may be looking to soak up some autumn adventure this season – and Southern Utah is a great place to do it. As a mecca of outdoor adventure, the area offers plenty of ways to explore new places, learn new skills, and make new memories. During the fall, vibrant landscapes and comfortable temperatures are just an added bonus!

  1. Catch a canyoneering tour. If you’re an experienced adventurer, canyoneering is a challenging activity that’s likely to catch – and keep – your interest. Depending on your location, a single canyoneering excursion can test your skills in climbing, rappelling, swimming, hiking, problem solving, and more. There are a variety of local guides that offer guided canyoneering tours of Zion National Park, allowing you to safely explore its stunning array of colorful slot canyons. 
  2. Jump on a Bryce Canyon Jeep Tour. If you prefer to adventure off the beaten path, a Bryce Canyon Jeep Tour is one of your best bets. Expert guides will take you through the beautiful Bryce Canyon backcountry, where you can revel in remote autumn landscapes most visitors will only see in pictures. 
  3. Elevate your sightseeing experience on Brian Head Resort’s Ridge Runner Zipline. Taking in the view doesn’t have to be boring! Experience the mountain’s beautiful fall foliage as you fly swiftly down the slopes in a secure safety harness. 
  4. Mountain biking is a fun and fast way to explore our stunning fall landscapes. You can visit Brian Head Bike Park to ride modern trails of all technicalities or strike out on your own to pedal popular paths like Lower Ponds Loop or Dark Hollow Trail
  5. Cast a line in Panguitch Lake. Don’t underestimate the thrill of catching your own trophy-sized trout! Autumn is great for anglers as fish are on the move preparing for winter’s frozen waters. You can rent a kayak to find your own fishing hole or drop a line from the deck of your Panguitch Lake cabin. 
  6. Rock Climbing. Scale the near-vertical routes of Zion National Park as the autumn sun bounces off the colorful sandstone cliffs. Lower temps and weaker sunlight make fall a spectacular time for rock climbing in Southern Utah. 
  7. Explore right near your rental. In a cabin like The Finch Nest, you’ll have easy access to miles of hiking and ATV trails to create your own autumn adventure. Grab a map or blaze a new path – just be sure to watch for wildlife and share the space with fellow adventurers!
