Don't Fear Fall; Autumn Brings Awesome Adventure Opportunities

Tom Malone/Adventure Tribune
Autumn brings plenty of adventure opportunities if you know where to look. So, how can you increase your adventure this fall?


Autumn often receives little attention for its adventure opportunities. Summer is ending and the thrill of being able to play outside has lost its allure when the temperature drops and the rains arrive, which can deter people from focusing on outdoor adventure.

However, autumn possesses some of the best outdoor adventure opportunities of the year. But, why?

When more people elect to stay inside, they open up space on popular hiking trails and outdoor areas for the true adventurers to explore. With less crowds comes more space, which provides peace and quiet to a nature adventure.

Autumn also brings changes in leaves. Now, instead of hiking in brownish-green summer nature, you can seek out hiking trails for their array of autumn leaf colors.

Fly fishing in the fall can be almost better than the summertime as well. With less crowds on the rivers, you'll be able to explore your favorite fly fishing spot with that new rod and you won't have to worry about a crowd messing up your perfect catch.

Late autumn brings the beginning of ski/snowboard season. Depending on the timing of the early mountain snowfall, you can be up in the mountains in the morning, and back down to fly fish in the afternoon.

Then, there are the road trips. Fall offers a few three-day weekends, week-long windows, and endless destinations. Travel to an away football game to support your college alma mater, explore a usually packed National Park (like Arches in Moab, Utah), or take a drive along your state's most pristine physical feature (Oregon's Pacific Coast, anyone?).

Whatever your adventure choice, make sure to capitalize on the adventure potential of the fall season. While others flock indoors to hibernate, don't waste precious adventure time; get out there and explore!
