Whether you’re from Petoskey or Indian River, you know that the Northern Michigan fall colors are one of the highlights of the season. And if you want to enjoy the full spectrum of yellow and orange foliage, what do you need to know in order to get the best photo ops possible? Check out our guide to discover the peak fall colors in Michigan.


Fall Colors Timeline

While you can catch gorgeous upper Michigan fall colors throughout the season, the best hues emerge between September to October. Look too early and you’ll only catch the tail end of summer, but act too late and you’ll only see bare trees settling in for winter. So whether you want to take autumnal selfies or just catch a great view in the gorgeous weather, start planning accordingly! 

Northern Michigan Fall Activities

Now you know when to head out, but where should you go? Both Northern Michigan and the nearby Upper Peninsula are packed with prime spots for nature exploration. Check out some of the most impressive places to catch the fall colors of Michigan.

  • Whitefish Point: If you can make it to the northern handle of Michigan, you’ll be handsomely rewarded. Enjoy breathtaking views of the blue waters against the vibrant leaves, and catch other Whitefish Point attractions while you’re there! 
  • Cheboygan State Park: Why not take advantage of the weather with a trip to the great outdoors in Cheboygan State Park? Activities like camping, hiking, fishing, and more are even more memorable while surrounded by the peak fall colors of Michigan.
  • The Grand Traverse: The Traverse City-Northport-Frankfort area is packed with 250 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, and it’s a great place to catch a hot air balloon ride to see the blazing hues from above.
