Blue Ridge Parkway Fall Color 11/7/17

Asheville NC Fall Foliage Color 2017 reports

November 7, 2017 Update: This year’s color show concludes this week in elevations under 2,500 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. 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. Best color spots now include South Mountains & Lake James State Parks. Watch for more updates on our Facebook page.
