Asheville’s Fall Leaf Color  – Hiking the Hills of WNC

The Blue Ridge Mountain range has one of the longest-running fall leaf seasons in the the country. Western North Carolina’s autumn color display is determined by the weather and the elevation of the trees that are changing.

Studies have shown that the leaves begin to change their color on the trees that grow on the highest mountain ridges then works their way down to the lower mountain hollows and valleys.

So while driving the Blue Ridge Parkway is a super way to see the leave changes, still to see the best views and take the best photos, you have to get out of your car and walk – hike or bike to the quiet places!
