Fall Foliage Prediction Map – This is an interesting map that gives a good overview of when colors change throughout the country. It’s a good macro view, but it is not detailed enough for specific areas.

Colorado Parks & Wildlife - Similar to the Fall Foliage Prediction Map, but focused on Colorado State Parks.

David -
Thanks for all the information and the field reports. I was in Ridgway a couple of years ago (the year the Aspen leaves froze) and plan to go back. This fall I will be in Quebec and Acadia otherwise I would attend the meetup. Do you do this every year?

My pleasure Craig! We are out here every year and try to keep everyone updated on the conditions. This was the second year we had the meetup and we plan to continue the tradition!
