Fall Color Touring
Brilliant maple reds, golden aspen yellows, and the rust shades of tamarack provide a fall color palette unique to the Lutsen area. Our fall season starts toward the end of September and lasts until October. We like to think of it as two separate seasons; the maple change first and about a week and a half later, the birch and aspen change. Check conditions at the Forest Service's Fall Color tracker.
Local forest service roads provide access to the interior of Superior National Forest and a well marked fall color tour is available for those looking to venture out by car. As the forests thin out, watch for moose in the swampy areas, and take in the abundance of fall color.
