Hittin' the Trails 4 You: Finding Fall colors on Mount Lemmon

Posted: Updated:

SUMMERHAVEN – Leaf peeping is reaching its peak atop Mount Lemmon.

If you’re looking to go “Hittin’ the Trails” in Autumn’s beauty this weekend, here’s three Fall color hot spots that are a 45 minute drive from Tucson.

The road near Bear Wallow Campground is shimmering in gold and red. Mid to late afternoon features filtered sunshine through the aspens and maples. Pack the long sleeves, as it will be seasonably cool.

Further up the mountain, foliage at Ski Valley is at max colors. The Aspen Draw Trail descends down into a sea of gold and red. This is a great family hike, netting 2 miles round trip near the ski slopes.

Finally, Marshall Gulch is worthy of a mention. Not as much color is found here, but still enough to satisfy. There’s an easy out-and-back portion of the trail, or you can take the longer Aspen Loop. The latter’s a 3.5 mile hike, tailor made for more experienced hikers.
