(CNN) - This weekend, Autumn is officially upon us, and a trip to see brilliant fall foliage will be on the agenda for many Americans over the next few weeks. Here are some smartphone apps to help map your road trip.

 As Summer fades, Fall bursts and for those looking to hit the road for a glimpse of those colors, a few apps can point you in the right direction.  
 

The 'Leaf Peepr' app for iPhone and Android maps which regions are turning, moderate, peak or past prime. Users can also upload photos and add their own reports.

You know they're pretty, but what are you really looking at? The 'Tree ID' app for iPhone can help with identifying characteristics of leaves, bark and fruit, and where they're found.


'Leaf Snap' for iPhone and iPad, lets leaf hunters snap photos of their findings and match it with the right species.  

If hiking is in your plans, the 'All Trails' app for Apple and Android, searches more than 40,000 paths to find one near you with reviews from those who've blazed the trail before.

And if fall football is really what you're looking for, try an app like the Sports Bar finder for Android and iPhone, or the 'Fan Finder.' They locate the closest watering holes with your game on tap.
