Fall Color Tour

Fall Color TourChanging leaves herald the coming of autumn to Mackinaw City as early as mid-September. That's when forest roads and trails begin to hum with the crowds of nature lovers who come to enjoy the display in the Mackinaw City countryside. The Mackinaw City area encompasses such a broad range of habitats that it's possible to stretch this most colorful of seasons into more than a month of celebration within its boundaries. The gold rush begins on the higher slopes Mackinac Island and the Tunnel of Trees just south of Mackinaw City as leaves change to amber while summer is still in the air. From there the transformation gradually migrates to crimson and then to fuchsia maples around the hills of Mackinaw City. The climax of this parade of color generally occurs around the first week of October, but remnants of reds, oranges and golds linger as late as mid-November in French Farm near Mackinaw City. The Northwestern Michigan fall color tour includes hilly, forested countryside, charming resort towns nestled along the sparkling blue waters of Lake Michigan, breathtaking views, fresh air and colorful wildlife. Fall sweeps across Michigan and the Mackinaw City area in broad strokes of color. Discover perfect places to relax, renew and reconnect. Fall is the best time to savor quiet pleasures from beaches to fine restaurants, farm markets and art galleries of Mackinaw City. Beginning mid-September and stretching through the end of October, the colors of autumn peak at varying times in the Mackinaw City area.
