OGDEN -- A wet winter means an extension to the leaf-peeping season along the Wasatch Front, and Visit Ogden is making sure people know exactly where to see the most vibrant colors fall has to offer in the region.

In a press release from Visit Ogden, officials detail some of the best spots to witness the change in colors, including:

  • Bonneville Shoreline Trail.
  • Ogden Canyon Scenic Byway.
  • Wheeler Creek.
  • Old Snowbasin Road.
  • Snowbasin Resort.
  • Causey Reservoir.
  • Powder Mountain.
  • North Fork Park.

In the release, Taylor Hartman, director of marketing and communications for Visit Ogden, said the time is right to visit these spots.

"It's the perfect time to take a trip and see the fall colors and set the mood for October," Hartman said. "Ogden has some of the best fall colors in the state. Our mountains are covered in bright red, yellow and orange leaves, and the aspens are bright yellow up our canyons. This is when fall is most photogenic in our area."

The release adds that the season is stretched out a bit this year thanks to a record winter.

"Historically, the leaves hit their peak in Ogden during the last week of September, but because of the wet winter, they're sticking around later than usual," it reads. "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."
