Fall Colors Alive and Well in November

What a beautiful state we live in! The fall colors are hanging around even into mid-November.

Eugene’s Ridgeline Trail is glorious right now, pure eye-candy for hikers, runners and bikers.

The McKenzie River doesn’t disappoint with its fall foliage.

Our jaws dropped when we drove into Benton-Lane Winery over the weekend. Because it’s lower in elevation, it’s one of the few wineries where the leaves are still on the vines. The yellows, oranges and reds make the hillside come alive.

We’ll keep posting updates until the leaves are gone, so keep the photos coming. Post them to the Oregon Fall Foliage Facebook page. Tweet them to @ORFallFoliage, or e-mail them to fall@eugenecascadescoast.org.

Check back tomorrow for more photos and an update from around the state.

  1. The lower elevation areas are the most vivid right now. The Willamette Valley and Southern Oregon are stunning, including the lower portions of the McKenzie River. Many trees on Oregon university campuses are still at or just past peak.

  2. I am new to this area, can you tell me specifically where in Southern Oregon should i go?

  3. The folks at the McKenzie Ranger Station tell me Koosah and Sahalie peaked about a week ago. They haven’t had much wind lately, so the leaves are still on the trees and hanging on tight. Highway 126 around Blue River and Finn Rock is still a great place to see colors.
