Traverse City Fall Color Update – October 19, 2020

October 19, 2020 Update:

Fall color is generally at PEAK in the Traverse City area right now. Look for color to be a little past peak along interior routes in the Traverse City area this upcoming weekend. Along routes near the shoreline the fall color this upcoming weekend will likely be around peak. (Peak color along routes closer to Lake Michigan are generally a week or more behind interior routes.) There should be good fall color in the region for the next two weeks.

Fall Color Report: Oct. 19 via TRAVERSE CITY TOURISM – There’s still time to enjoy peak color in northern Michigan! Our forests have reached 100% of their autumn glory, so this week is the time to hop in the car and savor the beauty of the season.

To catch the leaves before they fall, plan routes around the lakes and bays that help stretch the color out a little bit longer. Explore M-37 on Old Mission Peninsula, US-31 running north toward Elk Rapids, and M-22 on Leelanau Peninsula for beautiful views of trees and waterways. >>> READ MORE >>>

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.
