Asheville Fall Leaf Color Report

Now is the time to head for the hills! Asheville is know to have one of the longest color seasons anywhere in the country. The variety of foliage as well as the medium elevation contribute to the phenomena.

Color is beginning throughout the area and should last for the next 2 to 3 weeks.
The Blue Ridge Parkway has several accesses from the Asheville area and is one of the best ways to enjoy the views of color creeping down the mountains. The parkway is open for driving and hiking, but visitor centers and facilities are closed thanks to the government shut-down. So plan ahead for bathroom breaks and food.
