Western U.P. Fall Color Update – September 16, 2019

Fall Color Update – September 16, 2019

September 16, 2019 – Western U.P. Visitors Bureau

Here it is mid-September already and the leaves are showing some nice reds and oranges. Color right now is about 10% with peak color being generally the last week of September and the first week of October. In our area we have about three to four peaks in different areas, first along U. S. 2 to Watersmeet-next south of Wakefield on Chaney Lake Rd. – and then on some of the logging roads in the Ottawa and later along Lake Superior Shore.

You will want to visit Copper Peak for our fall color and take the Adventure Ride to the top of Copper Peak for some of the most spectacular views in the Midwest. The color is breath taking. Come up and enjoy our fall color!!! If you have any questions you can call the office at 906-932-5-4850 or visit our website www.explorewesternup.com/things-to-do/fall-color-tours/

The Copper Peak Ski Jump and Adventure Ride in the Western U.P. is operating 7 days a week now through October 23. Take the ski lift and elevator to the top of the Copper Peak Ski Jump for some of the best (and exhilarating) views of rugged Western U.P. and Lake Superior.

You can also treat yourself to fall chairlift rides starting this weekend at the Porcupine Mountains Ski Area. They will be running the lifts Saturday and Sunday from noon to 7pm. The Fall Color Chair Lift Rides at the Porcupine Mountains Ski Area will be operating through the fall….
