Fall Color Report:

Color is everywhere. In our area color changes at varying times in different locations, for the most part we’re at or very near Peak in Gogebic County.  This past week the colors have really popped.  This year we have more reds and oranges, along with the golden iridescent.  Some of our trees are still green.  Right now the color is 80 to 60%.  Colors are gorgeous!!!!

The area closer to the lake shore is always about a week behind inland.  So if you can’t make it up this weekend, next week you will still see color closer to the lake.

Talking about color, don’t forget about Copper Peak Adventure Ride.  You won’t see these views of color anywhere else like at Copper Peak.  Hours are 10:00 – 4:30 daily through mid-October.


In the fall, enjoy a panoramic view of glorious fall foliage and clear blue water. Fall is the perfect time to explore back roads on a bike, paddle a quiet lake, hike a densely forested trail, climb a rugged mountain or just plain change your perspective on what the world has to offer.

Fall is all about our natural surroundings! The Western Upper Peninsula at its untamed best, raw and rugged. With a Lake that thinks it is an ocean and abundant rivers flowing through ancient forests summer is the perfect time for paddling, fishing, rock hounding, hiking, or just quietly taking in blue skies and beautiful beaches.
