Western U.P. Fall Color Update – October 8, 2019

Fall Color Update – October 8, 2019

We have reached PEAK FALL COLOR along interior routes of the Western U.P. The color is now at peak along most interior routes from Ironwood to Marquette. Look for great color along the routes around Lake Gogebic and west of Marquette around Lake Michigamme. Some areas may be a little past peak by this weekend. Fall color should now start peaking along the Lake Superior shoreline in the Western U.P. Look for Lake of the Clouds Overlook to reach peak by this weekend. It’s the last weekend for the Fall Color Chair Lift Rides – Porcupine Mountain Ski Area

Fall Color Photo Tour – Upper Peninsula – October 1 – 4, 2015

The Fall Color Season is off to a slow start for the year 2015. The record warm weather during September has moved the Fall Color Season by 10 to 14 days (that’s two weeks) in the Upper Peninsula. Nevertheless, we toured some of our favorite spots in the U.P. to see the early fall color emerging this year. Here are some photos of our adventure. (Look for some good peak color in the Upper Peninsula next weekend, October 10 & 11, 2015.)

Copper Peak Ski Jump and Adventure Ride – Western U.P.

The Copper Peak Adventure Ride lets visitors rise to the same heights as the athletes who have flown down the hill in years past. After an 800-foot chair lift ride to the crest of the hill — a 360-foot copper-bearing volcanic outcrop — visitors take a thrilling 18-story elevator to the main observation deck. From there, the truly fearless can walk an additional 8 stories to the top starting gate.

Once at the top, visitors can enjoy the highest, most awe-inspiring, unobstructed vista in the Midwest overlooking over 2500 square miles, 3 states and even Canada on a clear day. The Copper Peak Adventure Ride is an opportunity not to be missed!

For the most up-to-date Adventure Ride information and/or weather closures, please visit our Facebook page here.

2019 Adventure Ride

Open Every day (Monday through Sunday): 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. from Memorial Day weekend to mid-October (weather dependent)

  • Adults – $20
  • Students 14 and under – $8
  • Children under 5 – Free
  • Credit cards accepted

Fall Color Chair Lift Rides - Porcupine Mountain Ski Area

Contact the state park at 906-885-5275 for more details.

The roughly 59,000-acre state park managed by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is Michigan’s largest and is situated in Ontonagon and Gogebic counties.

The chairlift rides will be offered over four weekends in the fall. (Schedule may change, call ahead for latest info.)

“A visit to the Porcupine Mountains offers some of the best fall colors anywhere,” said Bob Wild, DNR interpreter at the park. “Take part in the many fall activities being offered and take home some great memories.”

Cost is $7 per person. Children ages 12 and younger ride free.

The ski hill at the park is located a half-mile west of the Union Bay Campground along Ontonagon County Road 107.

“Ride the chairlift to the top of the ski hill and either hike or ride the lift back down for some great scenery overlooking Lake Superior,” Wild said. “Bring a camera.”

Bessemer Pumpkin Festival – September 28 – October 1, 2017


Welcome to the 39th Annual Bessemer Pumpkin Festival.

ALL EVENTS ARE STILL TENTATIVE AND MAY CHANGE

The Bessemer Pumpkinfest Committee is proud to sponsor this year’s event where you’ll find activities for the entire family.

Festivities begin Thursday evening, September 28, with the “Business After 5” social at  the Pit Stop Bar & Grill. This event is co-sponsored by the First National Bank of Bessemer, The Leather & Gift Shop, & Pit Stop Bar & Grill. Also starting Thursday evening are the 50/50 raffle & poker run, and geo-caching.

The Bessemer Historical Society opens its doors from 1 – 4 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday. Stop by and see the many displays depicting Bessemer’s history and heritage

On Friday evening from 6 to 11 p.m., we are offering FREE carnival rides for all ages, food, & games. There’ll be “dancin in the streets,” at least on Sophie Street, from 7 – 10 p.m. with music provided by a local DJ.

If you’re looking for some adventure, take the short drive to Copper Peak and enjoy their Adventure Ride. They will be open from 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. all weekend. Also, helicopter rides will be taking off from the field east of Steiger’s Home Center from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The Poker Run begins on Friday with drawings at midnight on Friday & Saturday at the Pit Stop Bar & Grill.

On Saturday, September 30, begin your day with a hearty Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast at the St. Sebastian School (regular pancakes are available too). The St. Sebastian Knights of Columbus fire up the griddle from 7 – 11 a.m.

After breakfast, the entire family can spend the day downtown with special activities for kids (and adults who want to act like kids). Vendor and food booths will be all along Sophie Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with entertainment throughout the day.

Sophie Street activities include a costume kiddies parade, carnival, ventriloquist Dave Parker and Skippy performances, balloon characters and face painting by Happy Dayz the Clown & Twinklz, pumpkin bowling, pony rides and petting zoo, and a number of contests. Please see the Contests page for more information.

Pumpkinfest T-shirts can be purchased at our information booth and BP gas station.

Lake of the Clouds in Porcupine Mountains State Park one of the most beautiful places on earth. God surely danced with a paint brush here. It is a beautiful place .

Last years photo?? It is a stark contrast to the one you show of the Porkies looking the other direction. Maybe you should date the photos so people know exactly what state the colors are?? Just a thought. If I saw the picture of the ski ramp first I would not schedule a trip for next week end as it would be past peak. Thank goodness I saw the real picture of the Porkies.

This is a good map of the current state (October 3, 2019) of the fall color in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.... #westernup #marquette #munising #newberrymichiganFall colors are near peak over sections of western Upper Michigan as October begins.

The warm weather in late September and possibly the excessive wet weather has slowed the progress of fall colors across Upper Michigan this season. Gogebic, Ontonagon, Iron and portions of Baraga Counties are reaching peak over the next few days, while the Copper Country and Marquette Counties are showing up to 70 percent color away from Lake Superior.

Farther south and east, peak is still a good week away with reports showing up to 50 percent color in the Iron Mountain/Escanaba areas. The same holds true farther east over the eastern half of Upper Michigan.

The Fall Color Show for 2019 is getting underway along the interior routes of the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This weekend - October 5 & 6 - leaf peepers should be able to find plenty of vibrant peak color along routes around Lake Gogebic and other areas in the Western U.P. There should be emerging peak color in the Porcupine Mountains with colors reaching peak at the Lake of the Clouds sometime next week and into the weekend of October 12 & 13. Here are some maples about to reach peak color behind the Regal Country Inn/B&B in Wakefield. (Photo taken October 2, 2019) #fallcolorphotos #wakefield #westernup ... See MoreSee Less

It looks like the 2019 Fall Color Show is kicking off along the interior routes of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We found vibrant color getting pretty close to peak along M-28 west of Marquette all the way through the Western Upper Peninsula. It should be a good peak weekend for interior routes there. Fall color is a bit behind in the U.P. east of Marquette. You should be able to find some good stretches of early peak color around Munising and Newberry, but there will still likely be a lot of green. Peak in the Eastern U.P. will probably be sometime next week. #fallcolorphotos #westernup #marquette #munising ... See MoreSee Less

Bond Falls is one of those “best kept secret” spots on the Western Upper Peninsula that you want to make sure you do not miss.

This beautiful water fall is located on the middle branch of the Ontonagon River near Paulding.

Although it does not get the “press” of more famous U.P. water falls, Bond Falls has a large following of admirers and had even been part of a calendar as one of the most scenic natural places in the world!

Superior Falls – Western U.P.


Superior Falls – Extremely beautiful gorge. Access is moderately easy. Directions: From Hwy US 2 in Ironwood. Go North on Lake Rd. This is approximately 25 mile drive. You will see a marker on the road that says Superior Falls. Turn north (right) on that gravel road. Continue down the small hill to the parking lot. Walk down the road to the River Mouth and Lake Superior. Then walk upstream 1/3 mile to Superior Falls. Superior Dam Falls is a little further upstream. If you have time, stop at Little Girls Point Park for a picnic. You will see this park on Lake Road on your way to the Falls.
