The Smoky Mountains experience, on average, quite a few weeks of fall color during the autumn leaf season. The colors travel down the mountains from higher elevations to the lower. The timing of this color change is almost impossible to predict with 100% accuracy as it is dependant on so many factors. One of these factors that is constant is elevation. At the higher elevations colors can start to change as soon as the middle of September with the changing colors of the yellow birch, American beech, mountain maple, hobblebush, and pin cherry. Fall colors will start to develop above 4,000 feet around early October. These colors can best be seen on drives such as Clingmans Dome Road and the Foothills Parkway. The peak of the fall colors on mid and lower elevations begin in mid-October and early November. This is the most spectacular display of fall foliage in the park with the turning of such trees as the sugar maple, scarlet oak, sweetgum, red maple, and the hickories.
The yearly display of colors brings visitors to the smokies in mass amounts, especially during the final three weeks of the fall display, making autumn both a beautiful and busy time in the Great Smoky Mountains.
