October is cold as the average temperatures drop to the range of 43°F (6.1°C) to 55°F (12.8°C). Sunny days are at a premium as the daylight reduces with the onset of the winter. October is the second wettest month with rain to the tune of 3.6" (91.4mm).
A great way to experience fall colors off the roads is by kayaking, canoeing, or tubing the Betsie River or the Upper Platte River. Rentals are available quickly, but it takes an experienced kayaker to navigate the faster currents, tight turns, and low hanging branches in the middle of the heavy October rain. Frankfort Fall Festival and Beer Festival is a great way to keep warm in the cold weather.
