Cherokee National Forest Fall Color Report

Yesterday the Cherokee National Forest published their latest Fall Color Report. Here's a synopsis from the report:

Fall colors continue to appear on the hillsides and mountain tops. Approximately 25-30% of the leaves have changed color at elevations above 3,500’. Colors at lower elevations are at about 15% overall.

These percentages may vary from area to area.

Popular, dogwood, black gum and sassafras are showing color in many lower elevation areas.

Recent wind and rain have caused some leaves to fall early throughout the Forest. This is not uncommon and there are still plenty of color viewing opportunities in the days to come.
