DETROIT LAKES (KDLM) - This weekend will be the final weekend before winter to enjoy the scenic lift rides at Detroit Mountain.
For a small fee, you can ride the ski lift to view the fall colors which are expected to peak within the next 10 days.
The lift is open from 9:30am-4pm
Typical peak color for the far northern reaches of the state around the Boundary Waters Canoe Area is mid to late September. The northern third of the state peaks in mid-September to late October. Central and western Minnesota hits peak color from late September to early October. Southeastern Minnesota hits peak color in early to mid-October.
The Minnesota DNR recently launched their fall color finder, the guide is updated daily with the leaf color percentages throughout the state. The color finder is available here.
