Fall Rides Not to Miss

Posted by George Tait | Sep 19, 2018 | 0 Comments

Utah has the most beautiful scenic routes to check out on a motorcycle when the leaves are changing. The leaves are already changing at higher elevations like along Guardsman Pass, but typically the last week of September to mid-October is peak time to see all the colors of Fall. Gear up and get ready to see some stunning fall leaves amid sharp cliffs and majestic waterfalls. Here is a brief list of rides not to miss.

Boulder Mountain

Distance: 64.6 Miles

This ride covers a lot of ground and takes you to high elevation where it is cold even in the summertime. This is the ultimate ride passing through National and State parks and small towns. There are a lot of opportunities to get off your bike, look around, listen, and appreciate the beauty of nature.

Alpine Loop

Distance: 26.5 Miles

There are a few local attractions you will pass on this ride, Timpanogos Cave, Sundance, Cascade Springs, to name a few. With all the attractions it makes the road crowded making the ride more sight-seeing and leisurely making your way rather than riding. The scenery is breathtaking though, so that makes this ride worth it.

Wolfcreek Pass – UT-35

Distance: 68.3 Miles

This route was not all paved a few years ago, so sometimes it doesn't show up on GPS. It's a higher elevation ride up to about 10,000 ft., which also means it's not always open due to snow. The leaves will change sooner on this ride than others in lower elevations, and a lot of sweeping turns make this ride exciting.

Nebo Loop

Distance: 42.7 Miles

This ride climbs to about 9,000 ft. bringing you to view the tallest peak of the Wasatch Mountains, North Peak.  Recognized as one of the few National Scenic Byways this ride is a must see. This area is popular for equestrian camping and grazed by cattle, so you might come across herds of cattle.

La Sal Loop

Distance: 36 Miles

This ride is just east of Moab between Hwy 198 and Hwy 128, taking you away from the stunning red rock scenery to a mountain landscape. The foliage along this route ranges from dry brush with pinyons and juniper trees to gamble oak, aspens and conifer trees. The ride is all two-lane highway with no shoulders and a few sharp turns.
