Traverse City Fall Color Update – October 24, 2019

October 24, 2019 Update:

In Northern Lower Michigan fall color is past peak now along all interior routes. Routes along the Lake Michigan shore – such as M-22 in Benzie and Leelanau County – should still have some good color.

Crystal Mountain Fall Chairlift rides are October 11, 12 & 13 – October 18, 19 & 20 – and October 25 & 26.

Crystal Mountain Peaktoberfest is October 18 – 20, 2019

We took a road trip around Benzie County and stopped at Crystal Mountain to check out the fall color. We found some great fall color with some areas getting close to peaking. There should be vivid, generally peak color this weekend for your color tour and conditions should start being past peak sometime next week.

The 2015 fall color season is a little behind this year in Northern Lower Michigan, however, we are now seeing pockets of vivid early color along the interior routes of Northern Lower Michigan. There should be good early season color along these routes this weekend and we’d expect the colors to peak along the interior routes next week and into next weekend – October 10 & 11, 2015.
