Fall is a special season in the Smoky Mountains as temperatures drop, and trees change in to their fall splendor of colors.  Each year, people always ask when the leaves will change color in the Smoky Mountains in hopes of planning a visit at just the right time to see the colors at their peak (when they are the brightest).  Understanding what makes leaves change color in the fall will give you an idea of how to know when the colors will peak. There’s a long, detailed, scientific explanation available at the USDA Forest Service website
Foliage Forecast #1: July 27, 2016 – The Smoky Mountains have had a very wet and warm summer, which means the trees are extremely green & plush with leaves. This has created an enormously full canvas for what we expect to be an incredibly vibrant, beautiful, and hopefully long-lasting fall foliage season! The biggest variable in predicting when the colors will change is the temperature. Everything will kick into gear when we have cool (but not freezing) nights starting in September as the daylight becomes shorter. Currently, the National Weather Service is predicting above-average temps for August, so hopefully that will change as September rolls in.

As of right now, our first prediction at the Gatlinburg Tenn Guide for the 2016 Fall Color Forecast for the Smoky Mountains is October 15 – November 15.  As always, the colors will begin to change in the highest elevations first and then trickle down into the valley (Pigeon Forge) over the following weeks. As temperature and weather patterns change over the next couple of months, we will update this forecast accordingly if necessary.
