Tucked into the foothills of the Wasatch Range, Summit Creek offers a front-row seat to all four seasons—and fall is undoubtedly among the most magical. From the crisp weather to the golden leaves, autumn is officially in full swing in the Beehive State, and our residents can make the most of it by embarking on a variety of adventures. Below, read up on our favorite ways to soak up this colorful season.
Go on a Nature Hike
There’s no better way to make the most of the cooler weather (and find some beautiful leaves that can be used as a fall centerpiece) than by going on a nature hike. With dozens of trails unfurling in every direction at Summit Creek, it’s easy to soak up autumn’s stunning sights while getting your cardio in.
Experience Fresh Apple Cider and Donuts
Nothing says fall like fresh apple cider from a local orchard. Round up a group of your friends or family members and take a 15-cruz over to Rowley’s Red Barn, where you can enjoy homegrown apple cider donuts, slushies, old fashioned cider, ice cream and more. Remember to buy more than one-dozon donuts. If you don’t, you’ll find yourself driving back for more!
Visit a Pumpkin Patch
Delight kids (and kids at heart) by planning an outing to a pumpkin patch. Located just 15 minutes from Summit Creek, Glen Ray’s Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch is a family-owned operation that offers every autumn activity you could ever want and then some. After picking pumpkins in the patch, you can visit the petting zoo, weave through the corn maze, or ride on the giant 50-foot straw bale slide.
Go on a Mountain Bike Ride
Lace up your shoes, fasten your helmet, and embark on a mountain bike ride set against the backdrop of the Wasatch Range. With hundreds of miles of mountain biking trails at your fingertips, you can opt for a leisurely cruise or go for a strenuous workout. Either way, the gorgeous fall weather will be the perfect companion.
