Fall Color Update - October 26, 2015

We are now past peak in the Upper Peninsula. Although the last of the leaves are falling, it is still a good time to take a hike and enjoy the grandeur of the forests and mountain vistas of the Upper Peninsula. Snow will be falling soon, so get ready to enjoy the U.P. when it is covered in a blanket of white. Check out Ski Michigan for opportunities to ski in the U.P.


There is still peak color in some parts of Northern Lower Michigan with chances to catch a late fall color show in the Traverse City area - best color will be on the Old Mission Peninsula and along the coastal routes of the Leelanau Peninsula and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. You can also catch some late season peak color in the Petoskey and Harbor Springs area and catch the last of the color along the Tunnel of Trees, north of Harbor Springs. Also this week, Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island is having their first-ever Halloween Weekend at the Grand. Enjoy a weekend of Halloween activities and wear your spookiest, silliest, or craziest costume to the Halloween Ball and Costume Party on Saturday night.
