Best Fall Leaf Colors in Flagstaff

Flagstaff is one of the best places in Arizona to experience brilliant fall leaf colors. The cool, crisp, mountain air, sunny skies, forested meadows and aspen groves make fall leaf-peeping a favorite seasonal activity for visitors and locals alike. Because there are limited places in Arizona for people to experience this magical time of the year than many other parts of the country, many of the best places to see fall leaves in Flagstaff can get quite busy. We’re going to provide as many up to date resources here so you can keep track of when then leaves change color so you can make the most out of your fall leaf experience and your day. A rule of thumb is to remember to bring a warm jacket and a camera! Get ready to explore and discover enchanting fall leaves like a local!

Where to Find Fall Leaves

Flagstaff typically starts seeing leaves change color at the end of September and throughout October. The peak leaf-peeping time varies depending on elevation, temperature and moisture received throughout the year. You’ll still be able to catch fall leaves in November the more south you travel, such as in Oak Creek Canyon on the way to Sedona from Flagstaff.


Lockett Meadow

Access to Lockett Meadow Campground is closed to motor vehicles due to the Pipeline Fire Closure. Access to this area now includes a 6-mile round-trip hike.

Lockett Meadow may be the busiest and most popular place to experience fall leaves changing color, and for good reason. Lockett Meadow is a beautiful aspen grove located at the Inner Basin of the San Francisco Peaks. Cozy campsites, well-maintained roads, and a gradual switchback trail up and through the rustling aspens make this place nothing short of magical. The downside is that during the fall, the road up to Lockett Meadow becomes a bumper-to-bumper traffic jam and parking becomes nearly impossible to come by. To ensure a more enjoyable experience, make your way up the mountain in the early morning. Park rangers begin monitoring mountain traffic between 8 AM and 4 PM during peak season. Only 100 cars will be able to access the parking lot at a time. So for the weekend warriors, the early bird gets the worm! If you have the ability to visit Lockett Meadow mid-week, you’ll have a much less crowded experience.

Fall colors at Aspen Corner on Snowbowl Rd

Aspen Corner on Snowbowl Road

Aspen Corner is a beautiful sight you don’t want to pass up! On the way up Snowbowl Rd, you’ll reach an unmistakable stretch on the road that is draped by golden aspens on both sides of the road. Many people like to just find a safe parking spot off the road and start wandering around from there, but there are many beautiful trails off Aspen Corner that are well worth your time. Make sure to park completely off the road, be considerate of through traffic, and watch for cars as you cross. Many people get distracted by all the colorful leaves and forget common courtesy. Keep the peace and embrace your golden state of mind.

Recommended hiking trail from Aspen Corner: Arizona Trail Passage 34

From the Aspen Corner parking area, follow the trail 4 miles to Bismarck Lake for a whirlwind of aspens on a breezy, winding trail. Elevation range is 8,780 to 9,000 feet.

Hwy 89A Between Flagstaff and Sedona

Driving from Flagstaff to Sedona on 89A is arguably one of the most stunning scenic drives in the Southwest. 89A takes you through Oak Creek Canyon, a sandstone and basalt canyon with a seemingly enclosed canopy of brilliant gold, orange, yellow and red leaves lining the road. Beyond the leaves, you’ll find streams flowing over boulders and into colorful pools of cool, clear water. Along 89A are also shaded campsites and a couple of small markets and coffee shops making this one of the most convenient yet rewarding places to experience the colors of fall. Crank up the tunes and enjoy Flagstaff’s favorite fall leaf commute.
