“Do this drive when the leaves are changing color”

Guardsman Pass Scenic Backway
Ranked #2 of 98 things to do in Park City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 March 2014

When I was there, the colorful leaves rivaled the leaf-peeping in Vermont! Really worth it if you are in Utah in the fall!

Make sure you go that route to the cute town of Midway. Spectacular views the entire way. Used to be gravel, now paved with huge homes and hotel near the top.

A must see if you are in the Park City or Heber areas during the fall. Beautiful aspens and majestic views. Bring a camera and a sweater.

This is a do not miss drive especially when the fall colors are in full glory. Pack a lunch and picnic along the way. You end up in Big Cottonwood by Brighton and Solitude resorts.

Son & his wife took us twice over this pass for adventures. Enjoyed both days. One to Heber and then through a Wasatch State Park and the other to Park City area. Both this pass and the other areas have fantastic views.
