Coconino National Forest Fall Colors10/10/12

 Coconino National Forest has the following fall color reports for October 10:

  • Mogollon Rim, Forest Road 321C. Maples are prime right now, however they may not last too long if we get the winds that they are predicting for the next few days. Oaks and aspens should really begin to change when we get this cold front moving in Thursday and Friday. Don’t wait too much longer if you want to see a colorful forest. (Jeannie)
  • The colors are great down on the Mogollon Rim. The Maples are peaking out and the oaks are changing as well. (Ray)
  • Just wanted to let you and any others interested know that “East Bear Canyon” (Park and off trail enter from FR300G / 9737Y) is Prime Autumn at this time. (Hank)
  • Strong colors can be seen along the FR418, the FR151, and at Lockett Meadow. Last Saturday, at lower elevations (FR418 and FR151) colors seemed to be at their peak. Lockett Meadow is showing all shades: yellows, oranges, and some reds. (Rudy)
  • I was out on Road 151 for the construction out there but the northern portion of that road has some good spots for the color. There are also some areas where there are nice views of the colors up on the eastern side of the Peaks. (Sean)
  • I was out at Hart Prairie this weekend…colors were brilliant yellow in the Aspens, but you could see patches in the Aspen stands further up the mountain that are dropping leaves. (Annie)
