A hallmark sign of fall is the changing of color in the tree leaves from their lush green of summer to their rich red, orange, and yellow fall colors. It is a beauty that must be seen, and one of our favorite things to do in Pigeon Forge during the fall season. Pigeon Forge showcases a fall season that is a must-see year after year. The area is immersed with this beauty from late September into early November. Be sure to bring along your cameras because you will find some beautiful backdrops for family photos!
What to look for:
If you know your trees, the American Beech, Yellow Birch, Hobblebush, Pin Cherry, and Mountain Maple trees will be the first to start changing colors. Later in the season, you will notice the Sugar Maple, Sweetgum, Red Maple, Scarlet Oak and the Hickory trees revealing their fall beauty.
Best viewing times:
When the leaves actually start to turn depends on weather and many other factors; however, changes typically begin in early October. You will see changes in the higher elevations first. Peak season usually occurs in mid to late October when mid to lower elevations are seeing the changes as well.
