Aspen leaves

My husband and I will be staying in Manitou Springs over Labor Day for an extra long weekend. He heard that some of the aspen leaves may be changing colors in some areas. Would any of those areas be somewhat nearby to Colorado Springs/Manitou Springs area?

Thank you!

It actually feels like fall in the early morning. But no color change as of yet. Enjoy your time in the Springs.

If you want a nice little hike where there's lots of aspen trees, Rampart Reservoir in nearby Woodland Park is beautiful.

No turning of the leaves yet. We're actually in Aspen now, I would guess only 5% have actually changed. Don't know about higher elevations. St. Elmo seems to turn quicker than most.It's around 10,000 in elevation. 2 1/2 to 3 be drive. It's a very pretty drive.
