What is Fall Foliage season in North Georgia and Western North Carolina?
Summer in the North Georgia mountains brings shady oaks, maples, dogwoods, sumacs, and evergreens to their emerald colored peak. However, it is in the fall that Mother Nature truly takes her turn to shine.
In the fall, the leafy foliage takes its most spectacular hues and shades. The scarlet reds, firey oranges, bright yellows, and warm browns make the trees like jewels that blanket the flanks of the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains of North Georgia and North Carolina. Thousands of trees and millions of colored leaves become an unforgettable sight and a must-see in the Appalachian mountains.
For the fall colors season, many “leaf lookers” or “leaf peepers” and visitors flock to the North Georgia mountains to experience the spectacular foliage display that only happens for a short few months per year. Through scenic drives, trail walks, and from mountaintop visitors centers, thousands appreciate the brilliant and firey colors on display in the fall.
