The first day of fall is next week and the leaves are already turning.

Many people are wondering where to go to see the best colors, so 7NEWS Chief Meteorologist Mike Nelson has created a fall colors calendar for Colorado.

Here's a list of 7NEWS' favorite places to see the golden colors in Colorado:

  • Kenosha Pass, on Colorado 285

  • Guanella Pass, between Georgetown and Grant

  • Maroon Bells, near Aspen

  • Kebler Pass, on Gunnison County Road 12

  • Cottonwood Pass, on Colorado 306

  • Independence Pass, on Colorado 82

  • McClure Pass, on Colorado 133


From September 15-25, Nelson recommends visiting Northern Colorado including Poudre Canyon and Steamboat Springs.

For the best colors in the upper elevations of Boulder County and into Summit County and Eagle County, the best times should be September 20 to 30.

For areas south of I-70, in Leadville, Buena Vista and Aspen, the peak time for turning leaves will likely be September 22 and October 3.
