Blue Ridge Parkway Fall Color 10/30/2017

Asheville NC Fall Foliage Color 2017 reports

October 30, 2017 Update: After our winter visit with snow yesterday (see video & pic), the color show continues this week elevations under 3,000 feet (most valleys and foothills area). Unfortunately, our record heat in September and early October took 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 so far. I agree with Dr. Howard Neufeld (fall color expert at App State) that on a scale of 1 to 10, this year is a 3. Top scenic drive will be the US 74A from Asheville To Chimney Rock and Highway 9 from Black Mountain to Bat Cave. Peak color this week for South Mountains & Lake James State Parks. Watch for more updates on our Facebook page.
