Manistee County Inland Fall Color Tour Route

Manistee County is home to diverse fall color. With the seasonal temperatures, Lake Michigan and inland terrain variations, we have “two” fall color seasons that are usually about a week or so apart with the inland terrain peaking prior to the coastline peaking.  This is great for tourists and locals alike, as they get a little more enjoyment of our regions spectacular fall foliage.

Inland Fall Color Route Status
Updated September 17, 2019


Fall Color along the inland route is showing signs of some early color.  Tops of trees are finding themselves in color, however the bulk of the mature hardwoods in the region are still showing their olive green colors.  A spike in warmer weather has halted the forecasted color a little bit, but with cooler nights in the forecast, they will be arriving soon. Start planning!
