4 Scenic Drives To See Fall Foliage in Colorado
September is here along with the changing of the leaves. Aspens are turning bright yellow and the elk are starting their yearly bugling. Fall is one of the best times to visit the Rocky Mountains! The leaves have already started to change, and the beautiful show of color will only last until mid-October at the latest so there isn’t a lot of time to see them so make your plans now. I have compiled a list of some of the most colorful drives in Colorado.
Trail Ridge Road
With a climb of 4000 feet in a matter of minutes Trail Ridge Road drives through Rocky Mountain National Park up and over the tree line offering spectacular views of bright gold aspens and dark green conifers and snow capped mountains. The Elk Rut lasts from the middle of September to mid-October with hundreds of elk gathering together and the sounds of elk bugling from afar, this is an experience you don’t want to miss, but keep in mind there is a fee for entering the park but it’s well worth it for this amazing experience.
Peak to Peak Scenic Byway
This well known 55-mile trip features awe inspiring views of the Continental Divide, passing a few ghost towns and old mines along the way that allow the public to pan for gold in the creek. What an amazing memory for the kids. Just be sure to check the weather before you go.
Independence Pass climbs to 12,095 feet, with stunning views and bright colors. This is the highest paved road in Colorado. Tucked between Leadville and Buena Vista is the small town of Twin Lakes, home of two large lakes and one tiny ghost town. There isn’t much commercialization until you get to Aspen but the amazing vistas are worth the trip!
