The fall foliage show in the mountains and foothills surrounding Asheville in western North Carolina brings a kaleidoscope of leaf colors for many weeks. The Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains have one of the longest autumn color seasons in the country, thanks to our many 6,000-foot peaks (highest in eastern USA), deep valleys and varying micro climates.

It's always difficult to tell exactly when the leaves will be at their best as there are many factors. Though it's up to Mother Nature, Romantic Asheville has their best guesses posted here

One of the best locations for views and photo opps is the Blue Ridge Parkway. This also includes much of Pisgah National Forest near Brevard.
