Fall Colors Peaking in Parts of MN

UNDATED — As warm sunny days give way to cooler nights, we’re starting to see Minnesota’s leaves reveal those brilliant autumn colors. Here’s where to look this weekend and how to track the peak colors.

You’re first place to look for Minnesota fall color reports is the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website. The DNR updates its fall color reports daily. It offers you a map of the state with a color-coded system to make finding peak fall colors easy. The DNR also gives you the “hot picks”, statewide events and even a fall color “mobile app” to help you enjoy the best fall color experience possible.

If you’re heading out this weekend, and want to look close to home try the Little Falls area which is 75-100% at peak.

If you are heading farther north, peak conditions are arriving from Bemidji eastward through Grand Rapids and over to Duluth. The North Shore from Silver Bay up to Grand Portage also has peak conditions right now.

For folks heading southwest, check out the Marshall area for prime fall colors.

Other parts of the state have yet to reach peak fall color stage and the colors aren’t past their peak anywhere in Minnesota.

Here a quick-click to access the DNR’s fall color report.
