Petoskey Area is adored by many to experience the leaves on the trees change from their summer greens to yellow, orange, or deep red. The fall weather is seen typically from the end of September through early November – with peak fall foliage estimated in the second or third weeks of October (weather dependent). The famous Tunnel of Trees route, north of Harbor Springs, will see its “peak” fall color – all the leaves have changed color – later than the rest of the region. Petoskey Area is a special place to view the fall colors with the countless scenic drives – like the infamous Tunnel of Trees where you have beautiful leaves and views of Lake Michigan from picturesque bluffs. The air becomes crisp and not yet frigid, making it a special time to visit local farms for hot apple cider, attend an area Harvest Festival, go wine tasting in the Petoskey Wine Region, or take a scenic chairlift ride!
