Blue Ridge Parkway Fall Color 10/3/2017

Asheville NC Fall Foliage Color 2017 reports

Spotty color continues in the highest regions. While color started a little early due to cool weather, the last two weeks of summertime temperatures slowed the transition. Best color now is above 4,500 feet elevation, including NC Highway 215 near the Parkway and Parkway north of Linville Falls. Many areas got the first frost over the weekend, so that will speed up the color change. The Craggy Gardens summits and popular Graveyard Fields (and many peaks above 5,500 feet) are past peak due to Irma’s high winds taking down and way above temps, but valley views are still green. Watch for more updates on our Facebook page.
Weather Outlook: Plenty of sun and near seasonal temps this week. Needed rain possible Sunday and Monday.
