Peak Autumn Fall Colors

by swdke

About when are the fall colors at their peak?

Re: Peak Autumn Fall Colors

by dawgcentral

It's difficult to say. Usually the peak is in the third week of October, I'd say between the 20th and the end of the month. But the area has suffered a pretty extreme drought this year, and under these conditions, the leaves will dry up quickly when the weather turns and fall off.

here is the latest update from the national park service:

October 5, 2007 update - The park has had a very dry summer which may affect the timing, duration, and intensity of fall leaf season. During droughts leaves are not retained on trees as long as during years with normal rainfall. Sometimes leaves will dry up and fall off before any significant color change can occur. Although it's too early to tell how this season will turn out, some leaves in the park have already browned and dropped.

Yellow colors are developing at high elevation (above 4,500 feet) in the park and this area will probably peak within the next week. At middle and lower elevations species such as sourwood, dogwood, maples, sumac, and Virginia creeper are showing good red now, but this is still scattered. Fall wildflowers such as goldenrod and asters are colorful throughout the park. Please check back for another update next week.

I hope this helps. The Park is quite beautiful in any season, and I'm confident you will enjoy your visit under any conditions. Just be patient with the crowds :-)

Thanks for the information. I understand Gatlinburg and the Park will be packed. Fortunately, I am very patient, but do you have any advise for viewing the Park and minimizing taffic congestions?

The leaves are starting to change colors now! It seems to have snuck up on us, starting at the end of last week.

Travel Tips for Gatlinburg

We always eat at The Log Cabin...

by palmas57

We always eat at The Log Cabin Pancake House. It is a must for me. It is even better if it is snowing and you want a nice warm place to eat a great breakfast. I have been going to Gatlinburg since I was a little girl so it is hard to pick just one memory. We live in Florida and it is beautiful here. However, my heart is in Gatlinburg, Tn. I love the mountains and I think the best part is just spending time with my loved ones over the years in a beautiful mountain town.

This picture is from Ober Gatlinburg. We have never been sking but it looks like fun.

Trek up to the Chimney Tops

by abi_maha

The hike to the summit of the Chimney Tops is accomplished in just a few miles, measuring in at just 2.0 miles one way, but it still presents quite a challenge. The first mile up is relatively easy, but the last mile, particularly the last section on the Chimneys themselves, can be taxing for some hikers—especially those with a fear of heights. We climbed it easily enuf, it was the getting down part that was quite daunting.
In order to find the Chimney Tops Trailhead, look for the Chimney Tops parking lot, which is off Newfound Gap Road, if you are driving in from Gatlinburg it is the parking lot after you cross the first tunnel—from the parking lot, the trail leaves the road, crosses a stream, and begins to climb. For the most part, the trail consists of loose rocks, which makes it easy to twist an ankle or fall, so in order to help eliminate these possibilities it is important to wear proper shoes and mind your footing. The trail climbs up through the forest, following and crossing a cascading mountain stream via several bridges. As mentioned before, the trail to the summit is 2 miles long, 4 miles roundtrip, and it climbs 1335 feet—it is considered a strenuous hike that requires caution and strength, so pace yourself. But if you are hike enthusiasts don't miss it for sure!
For us it was a misty day so we didn't quite get the magnificient views, however the climb down in zero visibility was a thrill indeed!

Biltmore Estate: River Bend Farm

by monica71

River Bend Farm is another fun stop while visiting the grounds. Here you will learn how life and work was on the estate in the 1890s.

There is a tiny ice cream shop here that sells home made ice cream. It is really good and you should try it.
In fact, all the ingredients used to cook all the meals they serve here are produced on the grounds.

Mmm Mmm Good Prime Rib

by BurrGump about Blaines Grill and Bar

I've visited Blaine’s on a few visits to Gatlinburg. It had a different name about 7 or eight years ago, named after a Country Music star. The food and atmosphere was great then so when visiting The Smoky Mountains in September of 2003 I decided to find this place again. I couldn’t remember the name from my earlier visit about 7 or 8 years earlier but did not forget the balconies that you could sit out on and enjoy the mountain views. After going inside the gentleman at the door confirmed that I was in the same place but the name had changed to Blaine’s. I had dinner there twice on my 2003 trip and had the prime rim each time. The prime rib was one of the best I have ever had! Don’t miss this place! Mmm Mmm Good Prime Rib!
