The high elevations of the North Carolina mountains are beginning to move past peak now with some trees losing their leaves quickly at the highest spots. Color is starting to work its way down the mountain and places around 3,000 feet are enjoying peak color now. Many of the popular spots along the Blue Ridge Parkway like the Linn Cove Viaduct have seen their best color already.

Areas of the mountains from 2,500 to 3,000 feet are seeing a good amount of color but are not yet at peak. With some warmer weather this week that will likely stall some of the color for a few days before cooler nights come back into play later in the weekend. This should make for good color arriving in the Foothills over the next week or two.


Color is starting to show up nicely, but is still patchy in much of the Piedmont. This includes the Triad cities, as well as Pilot Mountain and Hanging Rock. Though, peak color will likely come to these places over the next week or so.
