Mono County Fall Colors



Visit one of America's Best Fall Foliage Forests!
Mono County and the surrounding Eastern Sierra provide the best show of glowing golden-orange-crimson fall colors in the western United States. Our natural landscape in the Eastern Sierra, where rugged granite canyons are carved by rushing streams and framed by an azure sky, offers a spellbinding contrast of colors during autumn. Travel to Rock Creek, Mammoth Lakes, the June Lake Loop, Yosemite (Tioga Pass), Lundy Canyon, Bridgeport, Sonora Pass and beyond to see fall colors at their finest.

BEST MONO COUNTY FALL COLOR VIEWING SPOTS:
Particularly good hot spots are the Lee Vining and Lundy Canyon area near Mono Lake and Yosemite, Rock Creek south of Mammoth Lakes, McGee Creek, Convict Lake, and the June Lake Loop.  Around Bridgeport, you won't want to miss Virginia Lakes, Twin Lakes and the Conway Summit.  The West Walker River, Sonora Pass and Antelope Valley are also lined with gold.

Fall Colors by Foot: Day hikes in Lundy Canyon, McGee Creek, Rock Creek Canyon or Green Creek are sure to impress. Stop by one of the region's Visitor Centers to get directions and maps.

Fall Colors by Car: Tioga Pass (Route 120) climbs through dramatic and rugged Lee Vining Canyon, connecting the Great Basin landscapes with the high alpine meadows of Yosemite. The June Lake Loop (Hwy. 158) is a gorgeous aspen-lined drive which links numerous lakes.  Rock Creek Road is also a colorful drive (road will be under construction Summer 2015, may be short delays) -- be sure to stop by Rock Creek Lakes Resort for home-made pie (closes mid October)!

CURRENT FALL COLOR REPORTCheck here for fall color updates, week by week. We try and describe by percentages how close the fall color hot spots are to "peak" and full color.  So 0 - 15% is still mostly green, lime green with some yellow.  Of course, 80-100% will be at peak with colors ranging from bright yellow, golds, oranges and reds. 

Last updated: COMING SOON! Fall Colors start changing mid September and run through the month of October. When the colors start to change this fall, we will start updating this page. Stay tuned and check this page, our Facebook page, and www.californiafallcolors.com for up-to-date information.
