Asheville NC Fall Foliage Color 2016 reports on October 25, 2016,
We got a winter preview last Saturday with Mt. Mitchell covered in ice (see photos) and very chilly temperatures throughout the mountains. But weather this week features perfect fall weather with bright blue skies. The colors have changed quickly during the last week. Peak colors are in elevations above 3,000 feet elevation – which is much of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, including Linville Gorge and much of the Great Smoky Mountains. The highest elevations above 5,000 feet are past peak – but their views into the valley have plenty of color. See more recent photos at our fall photo reports!
