Tucked away near the Sawtooth Mountain Range is the beautiful destination of Sun Valley. An easy shuttle ride from Boise, you can experience the wonder of the region in the unique colored foliage. Here are the five best things about Fall in Sun Valley.
1. Peace and Quiet
If you’re looking to travel to Sun Valley away from peak seasons, Fall is the best time to go. The Wood River Valley boasts a modest population of 21,000 people and is best viewed in autumn when an ideal peacefulness settles in. Don’t be fooled though; there are still plenty of adventures to be had throughout Sun Valley and into the Sawtooth Mountains.
2. Fall Foliage and Hiking
Sun Valley provides pristine views and heart rate boosting hikes any time of the year, but if you’re a sucker for leaves changing colors, then you need to visit in the Fall. Your other bonus of Fall hiking is the solidarity you will experience. There are plenty of hikes; the only problem will be choosing one.
3. Sawtooth Brewery Oktoberfest
If you couldn’t make it to Germany for Oktoberfest, all you need to do is travel to Sun Valley. Sawtooth Brewery, a local brewery based in Ketchum, Idaho, hosts Oktoberfest complete with a beer garden and bratwurst. The event this year will be September 15th through the 16th.
4. Trailing of the Sheep
The Trailing of the Sheep Festival is a highly praised and culture filled event. It was created to celebrate the history of sheep ranching in the region even as the area began to develop and bring in more residents. This year the festival will take place October 4th through the 8th.
5. Hit the Mountain
