Finally, it’s Fall in Tennessee. Every year we look forward to our beautiful Fall foliage. Every Wednesday, we'll share an update on Tennessee’s fall colors. Click See More for this week's report.
Our leaves in West Tennessee have yet to really start changing from late summer green. In Middle Tennessee, dogwoods are beginning to move to a rust color before changing to brilliant red in a few weeks. A few glimmers of change can be seen in the maples and other hardwoods around Nashville and the surrounding areas.
Around the Upper Cumberland – in and around Fall Creek Falls and Big South Fork – there is a hint of color across the vistas, announcing that there is a lot more to come. The colors should be at full peak in mid to late October here as well as in East Tennessee.
Our most famous Fall scenes can be found in the Great Smoky Mountains. Scattered color is starting to appear, especially at the higher elevations. The entire area will be a dazzling array of colors in a couple of weeks.
