Leaf Season on the Parkway

Cooler temps and ample rain in late September should mean Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge Parkway will soon be ablaze with amazing fall foliage. We get a lot of questions as to when the leaf season will peak, but at this point, it is too soon to tell. Since the southeast had unusually hot weather in early to mid September, it is unlikely that the leaves will peak early. However, early October has brought lows in the 30's to western North Carolina, meaning leaf season could be short and sweet.

Look for mid to late October to be the perfect time for a cruise on the Blue Ridge Parkway or a few days of camping on the Art Loeb. A few leaves have begun changing in areas like Black Balsam as the end of the blueberry crop vanishes and fall flowers bloom. Enjoy!
