Asheville NC Fall Foliage Color 2016 reports
October 27, 2016, Report: Wow! 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 weekend will feel more like spring. The colors have changed quickly during the last week. Peak colors are in elevations of 2,000-4,000 feet elevation. Best color for the next week will be in the lower valleys and the Chimney Rock and Lake Lure areas. The highest elevations above 4,500 feet are past peak – but their views into the valley have plenty of color. See more recent photos at our fall photo reports!
