Attention Leafers!  The leaves will be changing color soon and we have your guide for West Michigan fall foliage!

Every year the Smokey Mountains' website puts together a Fall Foliage Map that shows when the color change begins and ends for every part of the 48 contiguous states.

Here are the highlights for the lower region of Michigan:

  • The color change will begin around September 24th, but will be minimal/patchy until October 1st. 
  • Once October 1st rolls around, you will begin to see most trees’ leafs starting to change color.
  • The prime time for the color change begins around October 8th and eventually will peak around October 22nd.
