Fall Colors

From the brilliant reds from Maples to the bold yellows of birch to our vivid greens of our pines, Bessemer area has the most pronounced fall colors. Hike amidst the beauty to some of our top rated waterfalls or take a ride up Copper Peak to experience the awe of a colorful valley. You can’t get such bold colors anywhere else. After your color tour, be sure to stop in downtown Bessemer for a fresh baked good or a warm new hat to round off your trip.
