“When should I go?” is the most common question we receive.
“Go Now!” is our response. Don’t put off visiting an area if it is Near Peak or, certainly, at Peak. As, when a location is peaking it only has two weeks – at most – of peak color to be seen at that elevation.
Each photo posted on this site, identifies when and where it was taken. We try to post photos not older than a week. What you see in a photo will be different by the time you get there.
Above, Josh Wray captured yellow and lime aspen leaves on his hike up Laurel Canyon, near Mammoth, this week. Today, many of those green leaves have turned to lime, the lime leaves to yellow, and some of the yellow leaves have fallen.
If you want to see a specific area at peak, go to “Categories” on the left side of this site and click on the region you plan to visit. Then, scroll back in time to see where it was peaking and when in the past.
If you can only travel on a given date, click on “Archives” on the left side of this site and scroll back in time to see what was peaking. Then, go there.
If you want to see reports for specific locations (e.g., Laurel Canyon), enter the location in the Search bar above the map.
