Fall Color Tour
Color is usually best the last two weeks of September and the first week or two of October.
All of the Upper Peninsula is stunning during the fall color season. Any road winding through the U.P. will show you trees ranging from a subtle yellow to brilliant red. The flaming maples, oaks and other hardwoods make a perfect backdrop for the calm waters of the inland lakes. Fall is our tranquil period when the sounds of the forest echo around you as humans and wildlife alike prepare for winter. The peace and quiet of this period are unmatched at any other time of the year. The leaves are touched with frost, the skies are the bluest, the evergreens the greenest, and the lakes are the calmest as they prepare to don their covering of white.
