One thing’s for sure, Oregon in the fall is something everyone should experience at least once, especially a little further east in Treasure Valley. Oregon may not get as cold as a few places, but the drop in temps and change in sunlight still sends the area’s greenery into a kaleidoscope of vibrant color.
Plus, corn mazes pop up out of nowhere, festivals and fall-themed celebrations come to life, and everything feels a little happier and more laid-back in lieu of the incoming colder weather. Fall activities in Oregon are never hard to track down, but just in case you need a few pointers, check out our compilations of things to do in Oregon and Treasure Valley in the fall.
Things to Do in Treasure Valley in Fall
1. Visit the best spots to sesh in Treasure Valley
There are some pretty awesome “sesh” spots in and around Treasure Valley. While scoping out the area murals and street art, before checking out the area eateries, along the banks of the Snake River, to name a few. But the thing is, when fall settles in, the temps get a little cooler, and the leaves change. These perfect sesh spots become even more enchanting to experience while … erm … seshing. Be sure to check out this video of Treasure Valley Cannabis folks traveling around the valley to track down all the best sesh spots in town.
2. Take a trip to the Boise River Greenbelt
The Boise River Greenbelt lies on the eastern side of Treasure Valley, and it is well worth the drive to visit in the fall. The Greenbelt is a 25-mile recreational pathway for bikers and hikers that leads you through a dense collection of trees that run along the Boise River. During the fall, this area evolves into a spectacular show of color, and you’ll no doubt catch a glimpse of the area’s wildlife. Whether you take the path on foot or bike, you’re in for a memorable nature experience. If you’re already this far east, be sure to drive the few extra miles to see the Bogus Basin amid all the fall glory. This outdoor ravine has a little bit of everything, so visiting the basin happens to be one of the best things to do in Treasure Valley.
3. Go spirit chasing at Malheur Butte
With the spooky season in the air, plenty of people come to Treasure Valley in search of haunted places, and one such place just happens to be Malheur Butte to the west. Malheur Butte is a dead volcano pretty much in the middle of nowhere, and it is open to the public. The thing is, legend says that a lot of witchery went down at the butte back in the day, and you never know when a shadowy creature may show up to remind visitors they don’t belong. So, if you’re up for a spooky sesh in lieu of Halloween or just because, you may want to grab your favorite vape cart—and spirit-hunting gear, and get to work.
4. Head to Montgomery Farms for some family fun
If you’re into corn mazes and other fall festivities, Montgomery Farms is always a good spot to stop in Treasure Valley in the fall. Every year, the owners set up an awesome corn maze and have a whole bounty of fun activities for both kids and adults. The paintball course is open throughout the fall as well, and always takes on a new personality when the area foliage changes colors. At the end of the season in November, Montgomery’s hosts a full-on firework show to mark the end of the season.
5. Spend some time at the Ontario State Recreation Site
The Ontario State Recreation Site lies along the western banks of the Snake River. The area’s cottonwood trees, junipers, and sumac burst into new colors in the autumn, and the colors dance along the rippling water. This makes this an awesome spot to kick back and ponder life for a while. So be sure to grab some lunch, drive to the area, and pick a spot.
