Asheville Fall Color Update: What a great fall weather for enjoying the fall color in the North Carolina Mountains! This week, the peak color moves to the lower elevations, including the city of Asheville, Hendersonville and Brevard. This is the perfect time for a waterfall hike in
DuPont State Forest or leisurely walk at the NC Arboretum. This is also the peak leaf color for Biltmore Estate. Much of the lower elevations along the Blue Ridge Parkway will have great color, especially views from overlooks into the valleys.
Next week, the color show concludes in the Chimney Rock area (elevation of 1,300 feet). Ride to the top of Chimney Rock or take a boat tour on Lake Lure. Our top picks for events this weekend include the Weaverville Art Safari, a self-guided tour of 40+ studios north of Asheville. Also, the Halloweenfest in downtown Brevard is fun for all ages.
