Fall Leaf Report - Week 1

The Blue Ridge is spectacular year-round, however, leaf color forecasts predict a stellar season. A few colors have developed on Poplars, and other tree varieties, along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Today, green remains the dominant color.

“If the weather patterns hold and we don’t see any dramatic shifts, we should have a great color season this year,” said Robert Bardon, a professor of forestry and environmental resources and associate dean for extension at the College of Natural Resources. “The fall weather pattern makes a vast difference in what we’re going to see for fall colors.”  Sourced from author Emma Goslavez at North Carolina State University.

 Hiking and waterfall trails like Crabtree Falls, Linville Falls, and the trails at the Orchard at Altapass are showing a few colorful areas.  We're here to help with planning and answer your questions, give us a call.  828-668-4282
