Top 5 Things to Do in Park City in the Fall
1. Fly Fishing
There’s nothing more relaxing than a quiet day on the water surrounded by beautiful fall colors. Luckily, our area has two blue–ribbon fisheries and the Jordanelle Reservoir for excellent fly fishing in Park City, Utah! The Provo and Weber Rivers are great spots for independent anglers to cast a line and wait for a bite.
2. Park City Ghost Tours
Fall is the spookiest time of the year. If you’re a Halloween fanatic, consider an excursion with Park City Ghost Tours. During this 75-minute walking tour, you’ll hear tales of local hauntings and learn about the haunted buildings in historic Park City. Tours are available starting at 8:00 p.m. every night with a reservation.
3. Park City Mountain Resort
Park City Mountain Resort is one of the best places to take in beautiful fall foliage. Hit the mountain bike trails to take a ride among the golden aspen trees! Or, opt for a scenic ski lift ride for panoramic views of Park City fall foliage. The winter ski season begins in late November, so visit later in the season to shred the slopes!
4. Horseback Rides at Deer Valley Resort
Trot through the forest with a horseback ride at Boulder Mountain Ranch at Deer Valley Resort. This company features two horseback rides for guests to choose from.
