When Will The Leaves Change In Columbus?

Originally published 9/7/2017. Updated 9/17/2018.

Have you noticed any leaves in your neighborhood beginning to change? It’s officially that time of year, and Ohio will reach its peak fall foliage in the coming weeks, although it’s nearly a month later than last year.

Thanks to Smoky Mountains National Park, there is a great resource for those who are hoping to snap the perfect photos of Ohio’s fall colors. This interactive map shows when the continental United States will be most likely to experience fall changes.

By Monday, October 1, Ohio will begin to see leaves changing. The changes will be minimal.

October 8 brings big changes. Trees will become patchy, with oranges, yellows, and reds working their way into the green foliage.

On October 15, the leaves will be partially changed, and Northeast Ohio will be approaching its peak.

Nearing the end of October, the Northeastern part of the state, along with Michigan and parts of Pennsylvania will reach their peak. Central Ohio will still be moving towards the maximum changes.

The last week to view fall foliage with intensity and vibrancy will be October 29th. After that, the leaves will fall quickly.
