Blue Ridge Parkway Fall Color 10/15/2017

Asheville NC Fall Foliage Color 2017 reports

Color continues to spread to the lower elevations. Best color now is roughly the 3,500-5,000 foot elevation zone. Unfortunately, our record heat for the last few weeks have taken a toll in many areas (combined with winds from two tropical systems). So it’s definitely not our best year for a brilliant color show. But it’s still gorgeous. Many higher areas above 5,000 feet elevation are brown or bare. On the Blue Ridge Parkway, find best color in the Mt Pisgah and Linville Falls areas. Watch for more updates on our Facebook page.
Weather Outlook: Finally, fall weather arrives this week with seasonable temperatures. So bring a jacket since it will be chilly especially in the higher mountains.
