The Fall colors typically peak in this region around the end of September, but colors to the north of us are already well on their way. A good resource for the color report is the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison Nation Forest (GMUG) Office website. They offer weekly updates, as well as suggestions for the best scenic drives and regional hikes. Some great local options can also be found at telluride.com. Don't forget your camera!
