DENVER — Colorado’s mountains are full of fall color now that it’s mid-September.
To help plan your fall colors drive, we’ve put together a map of when colors are expected to peak.
The colors will first start to change in the northern mountains – including places like Steamboat Springs and Rabbit Ears Pass. The colors are expected to peak around Sept. 15.
Then the colors will start to move to the central and southern mountains. Places like Aspen, Telluride, Kenosha Pass, and Wolf Creek Pass will see colors start to peak in mid to late September.
Finally, the fall colors will make their way to Denver and the Front Range in early October.
