Fabulous Fall Foliage Drives


It’s official — today is the first day of fall, and it’s time to head to the high country to view the brilliant colors of a Colorado autumn.  The Colorado Tourism Office and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) have some recommendations on the best drives for fall foliage viewing.  CDOT has put together a list of exceptional fall viewing along Colorado’s scenic and historic byways.  See Viewing the Fall Colors the Byway Way for suggested byways along with dates of upcoming events to take in while you’re traveling.  The Colorado Tourism Office’s list offers20 recommended fall foliage drives divided by region.  Finally, Colorado Parks & Wildlife has compiled their own list, 7 Ways to Enjoy Fall Colors, which includes not only suggestions for drives, but bike or horseback rides as well.
