Smoky Mountain Colors
The peak this season is almost always the third weekend in October, but sometimes the colors turn sooner or will last into early November. For those who like a lot of green in their color scheme the first and second weekends of October are the best time to visit the mountains and  for those who enjoy lots of reds, oranges, yellows and browns from the third weekend in October till the first weekend in November.
