    Michigan fall colors tours

    Usually fall colors begin in mid-September and run through the end of October, peaking at varying times throughout the state depending on frost conditions. Except for the far western quarter of the Michigan Upper Peninsula which peaks from mid-September to early October, all other areas in the U.P. peak from late-September to mid-October. The expected peak color for the Lower Peninsula is from late September to late October. Of course, this is an "expected" time-frame. The actual timing is up to Mother Nature! We'll open this page for posting around the 2nd week of September each year. Enjoy the show!

    2011 Color Report

    Updated October 18, 2011

    Scroll down the page for more current viewer reports. User reports are updated daily. The summary report is updated weekly.
    Add your report below.
    Upper Peninsula.

    The U.P. is peaking this week and into early next week. This coming weekend (22/23) will be the last chance to see peak color, but even on the downturn, a drive through the area up to a week to 10 days after peak is still beautiful. Areas in the lower part of the U.P. will peak a little later and areas in the western part are mostly peaking right now.

    Report colors in your area using the form below.

    Northern Lower Peninsula.

    Most areas are between 50% and 75%, with more color, as usual, along the lakeshores and rivers. Reports from Grayling are that their colors are peaking now. Gaylord is between 40-50%. Areas more towards the south, even along the lakeshore, are 35-40%. Peak colors in most areas are still within the next week depending on the weather and still maybe 2 weeks away in the more southern portions.

    Visit our Michigan Fall Color Tours page for a drive route. See user reports below.Report colors in your area using the form below.

    Southern Lower Peninsula

    Color still varies between 25-40% in the middle of the state to 20-30% in most areas. Travel along the lakeshores and rivers for best color. In fact, along the south shore, colors are moving along up to 40-60%, so a trip along the western shoreline would be nice even if the colors have not peaked. Look for peak colors in about 7 to 10 days.

    See viewer reports below and plan your trip using our Michigan Fall Color Tours page for a drive route. Report colors in your area using the form below. Reports are based on our viewers and AAA field reports.
