Best Time to View Fall Colors in Colorado
The changing of the leaves is one of the absolute best times to visit the Colorado Rockies. The white bark of the aspen trees contrasts beautifully against the golden, orange and red palettes of the changing leaves, creating a stunning color combination that will permanently etch itself in your mind for years to come.
Generally, the change of seasons in Colorado occurs in mid-September, and peak fall leaf viewing occurs in late September through mid-October. There are several different locations to enjoy the stunning scenery, with Vail, Aspen and Colorado Springs being among our favorite.
