Coconino National Forest Fall Color 9/30/17

Coconino National Forest reports

Color is just beginning to dust the north side of the San Francisco Peaks. Typically around Flagstaff and the Mogollon Rim, the first strong color shows up in late September, and colors peak the first two weeks of October. West Fork and Oak Creek Canyon typically peak around the third week of October. Sedona and the Verde Valley don’t typically turn until the end of October and into November. This page will be filled out and updated regularly as we get information and the season progresses.

The season is just getting started! This report is in the process of being redesigned. Pardon our dust! In addition to regular status updates, we’ll be adding more sites and recommendations, and making things prettier. Check back often!

Best Bets

The following recreation opportunities are the best bets for fall color for the weekend of September 30, 2017.
