North Shore Fall Colors Report

Fall colors in Duluth and the North Shore of Minnesota area are starting to pop. In most cases along the North Shore the Fall colors will peak sooner as you get away from Lake Superior a few miles. Great spots to check out away from the lake would be to drive up the Sawbill Trail near Tofte, Caribou Trail near Lutsen or the Temperance River Road near Schroeder. We have found some of the best maple patches with a lot of fiery red colors if you explore further up the North Shore north of Grand Marais.
