When Will The Leaves Change In Columbus?

Before we know it, the trees will begin to change into the most glorious hues of red, orange, and yellow.

Ohio will reach its peak fall foliage in the coming weeks. 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. The interactive map shows when the continental United States will be most likely to experience fall changes.

By Monday, September 27, Columbus will begin to see leaves changing. The changes will be minimal. The following week, trees will become patchy, with oranges, yellows, and reds working their way into the green foliage.

On October 11, the leaves in Central and Southern Ohio will be partially changed, and Northeast Ohio will be approaching its peak. But the real show kicks off October 18 through October 25, when the leaves here in Central Ohio will begin to reach their peak vibrancy.

Your best bet to experience the most stunning fall foliage is between October 25 and November 1. Click here to see the interactive map for the season.
