Blue Ridge Parkway Fall Color 9/26/17

Asheville NC Fall Foliage Color 2017 reports

September 26, 2017 Update: Spotty color is appearing in the highest regions. While color started a little early due to cool weather, the last week of summertime temperatures have slowed the transition. More warm weather coming this week, so color change will be slow. Best color now along the Blue Ridge Parkway is found in the Grandfather Mountain area. The Craggy Gardens summits and popular Graveyard Fields are past peak due to Irma’s high winds taking down so many leaves, but valley views are green. Watch for more updates on our Facebook page.
Weather Outlook: Summertime temps this week through Thursday (highs in 80s in valleys and 70s in most of mountains). Much cooler this weekend, but plenty of sun. Bring a jacket for higher elevations.
