What is usually the peak time for fall color up north? I am planning to take the in-laws to see our property, about 40 min. south of Hayward. My husband and I were there around Columbus Day last year and the ride up was breathtaking, but it did snow while we were there and I think that may have had an effect to how long the color lasted.
Any thoughts? Thanks.

Peak varies from year to year. I would say most years it will be anytime from the last weekend in Sep up until about Oct 10. I go up north almost every year the first weekend in Oct, and hit the peak about half the time. Here's another site you can check:

The Foliage Network

but in most cases these sites are only accurate to within about a week or two, which is no better than what you might guess on your own.

Rain keeps up colors may change earlier than expected. Some swamps have colors on maples already.
Jill, Rusk county has the Leaf it to Rusk celebration around color change. Tour Blue hills during that time since cabin so close.

Oh, absolutely! Great suggestion! I hear that Christi Mountain has lift rides up to the hills!

Jill,
I would have to agree when the other members say last week of September to Mid October. I was in Minocqua in October 2008 and the color was prime!

Look around see fall leaf tours and HWY 70 is part of it.Get closer will see many updates.

Last year had it Sept. 25-28 so that is close to usual time of year. Every weekend could drop south a bit and see more.
