Looking to head to the mountains this autumn and see the leaves? The Smokey Mountains website has a prediction map so you can plan your trip to see them at their peak:
The 2018 Fall Foliage Map is the ultimate visual planning guide to the annual progressive changing of the leaves. While no tool can be 100% accurate, this tool is meant to help travelers better time their trips to have the best opportunity of catching peak color each year.
According to the map, the North Carolina mountains will hit its peak around October 29th.
