Chattahoochee-Oconee Nat. Forest Fall Color Peaking 10/27/14

Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest  has a new fall color report for October 27, 2014

Mild weather early this week will contribute to color development with a chance of showers on Wednesday as a cold front moves through north Georgia. Once the weather clears, highs are forecast to be in the 60s with lows dipping into the 30s, making for an authentic feeling fall color watching experience. Now is the time to see fall color in the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Continue to monitor the weather so you’ll know when to make that drive into the mountains. Remember to check the Brasstown Bald webcams so see just what the conditions are in this part of the forest. Lately it’s become obvious the color is moving into the mid and lower elevations. Depending on the weather, we could still have a week or two of nice fall color. Come and get it while you can!The main observation deck gives you the full 360 degree view from Georgia’s highest mountain.

Here are some suggestions for driving tours through the mountains this fall.

  • Russell-Brasstown National Scenic Byway
  • U.S. Highway 76 between Blairsville and Clayton
  • State Highway 197 between Clarksville and U.S. Highway 76. Very pastoral and scenic.

Other good drives will be along Georgia Highway 52 anywhere between Chatsworth and Dahlonega.
