Keep Track of Fall Color Hotspots in the Ozarks

The Missouri Department of Conservation is just full of awesome resources for residents and non-resident to utilize while in the Ozarks and one of the things I check regularly is the fall color update that’s updated September through November.

The fall color update is a continually updated article in which fall foliage is segregated by region so you can stay up to date on when leaves are changing colors and where.

Last Thursday, the article was updated to reflect the current foliage changes all around Missouri and the Ozark region’s color has barely begun to turn. The Department of Conservation reported that although bright spots of red sumac can be seen along the roadsides, it’s most likely due to herbicides applied by road maintenance to keep the roadsides visible.

I don’t know about you but I will be using this resource throughout the fall so I can pick the perfect time to spend a day in Branson, surrounded by beautiful fall colors.

  1. I love how the Ozarks looks when the leaves change. It’s probably one of the most beautiful times of the year, but only lasts about a week or two. I didn’t know that there was such a great way to be sure you don’t miss it! I’ll definitely be checking that out this year. Thanks!!

  2. I know most people are probably not excited to see the end of summer, but I have always been a huge fan of fall here in North Carolina. I’m more of a cold weather person, and the changing foliage is gorgeous. If you happen to find yourself in NC during the fall, then I recommend looking up DuPont state forest. It has been one of my long-time favorite places to explore during this time of the year.
