A Trip To This Utah Ranch Is The Perfect Way To Spend An Autumn Day
Now that there’s a little chill in the air, it’s time to start thinking about fun fall activities for the family. Take a trip to this Utah ranch for the perfect autumn day.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Cross E Ranch is a family-owned ranch in the Salt Lake Valley. It welcomes the public for special events throughout the year. You'll find the ranch at 3500 N. 2200 W.
Salt Lake City, UT 84116.
This year's Fall Festival takes place from September 21st through October 29th, and there's something here for everyone in the family.
Get lost in the 14-acre corn maze. This year's design celebrates the 50th anniversary of the ranch. What a legacy!
If you travel through all three mazes, you'll walk a total of seven miles. Wear your hiking boots.
Younger kids can easily navigate the mini maze. This hay bale maze is just a half-acre, so it's perfect for even the littlest adventurer.
Hop in the hay wagon and go for a tour of the ranch, where you'll get to meet resident horses and cows, and learn all about the long-standing history of this family ranch.
Kids will love the mini train ride. Make sure to visit during daylight hours to ride.
Take a break with some playtime in the corn pit. It's like a sandbox, but better!
You'll work up an appetite with all these fun fall activities, so grab an apple cider donut or two.
As the sun sets, you'll want to cozy up to a fire pit. Bring the makings for s'mores, or grab a cup of cocoa from the concessions stand. There's nothing like a sunset at the ranch.
For admission prices, hours, and directions to the ranch, visit its
website, and keep up on the latest news by following Cross E Ranch’s Facebook page.
