Fall Foliage Friday: Weekly Update

Fall color is starting to show up in and around the Great Smoky Mountains! We are starting to spot warm golden hues in some of the area's trees.

According to the Fall Color Report from Appalachian State University, the yellow colors we see are coming from the area's buckeye trees. Apparently, these trees are among the first to bud out with leaves in the spring and are also usually the first to show color change in the fall.

We're also seeing subtle changes at some of the higher-altitude areas within the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Our dogwoods and burning bushes are starting to show colors, and if you look up to the hills you'll likely see some sugar maples displaying orange and red hues.


Looking for more color? We're sharing our photos of local autumn leaves with fans on Facebook and Instagram using tags #FallFoliageFriday and #FFF! Click over each week to see the season's change! Or, follow Pigeon Forge on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for frequent updates!

Our stay was just what we needed. As always Pigeon Forge was perfect, with all the outdoor activities like hiking and biking to spending our nights watching the great shows! We always feel like it's home away from home. Wish we could have stayed longer!
