Drive Butterfield Canyon


Added by Annelise G

A gorgeous canyon drive on the other side of Utah Valley.

Butterfield Canyon is a little-known canyon on the west side of Utah Valley. Beautiful any time of the year, it is especially beautiful in the fallā€”all the leaves changing colors!

When you reach the marked location, turn onto Butterfield Canyon Road. Drive until you reach the end of the road (it eventually turns into Middle Canyon Road), or stop and turn around once you've had your fill of the beautiful views. There is plenty of space along the side of the road to pull over, get out, and breathe in the fresh canyon air.

This canyon is perfect for photography, especially family photoshoots!

Very few people know that this canyon even exists! However, itā€™s a great place for fall drives especially as well as photoshoots (guilty)!
