It's difficult to predict when exactly the leaves will turn in any given location. The best strategy is select travel dates in advance, but not destinations. Then go wherever the color is. Here are a few road-tripping routes, sorted by region, that have become fall-color pilgrimages for aspen lovers, according to Colorado Come to Life, a great resource for visitor information, things to do in Colorado, and special tourism offers:
