Fall colors – Route 14

The fall colors don’t come to the Zion Park area until the second part of September, and they start in the northern parts of the area first. Not as much because of the higher latitude, but mainly because of the higher altitude of the northern parts.

If you are in the Zion area between September 20 – October 10 (the exact period varies a bit each year), and you are surprised to see no fall colors in the park itself, then take a half day off your usual schedule and drive through Route 14, between Cedar City and its junction with Highway 89.
