Leaves, Laughter, and Love:  Fall in Flagstaff

autumn fun

lockett meadow


Flagstaff, Arizona, is a fantastic destination for experiencing the beauty of fall. The city is known for its elevation, which allows for vibrant fall foliage and cooler temperatures. Here are some of the best places to enjoy fall in Flagstaff...

Lockett Meadow: This is arguably the most famous spot for fall foliage in Flagstaff. The aspen trees turn brilliant shades of gold and orange, creating a stunning display. You can take hikes in the area or simply enjoy a picnic while surrounded by the colorful trees.


Explore the volcanic landscapes, lava flows, and surrounding forests at Sunset Crater. The contrast between the black volcanic rock and the fall foliage is striking.



This scenic area takes you through a dreamy place filled with aspen groves. The road leads to the Arizona Snowbowl and offers numerous places to stop and take in the fall colors.

 If you're in Flagstaff in late September or early October, consider attending the Flagstaff Oktoberfest. This annual event features live music, German food, craft beer, and traditional Oktoberfest activities. It's a fun way to celebrate the season with a bit of Bavarian flair.

Remember that fall in Flagstaff can bring cooler temperatures, so dress accordingly and be prepared for potential weather changes, especially if you plan to explore the outdoors or visit higher elevations. Enjoy the beautiful autumn season in this picturesque Arizona city!




There are several farms and pumpkin patches near Flagstaff, such as Mortimer Family Farms and Rockin' Star Ranch. These places often offer pumpkin picking, corn mazes, hayrides, and other fall-themed activities that are perfect for families and those seeking a taste of rural fall fun.
