Fall Leaf Colors in the Smoky Mountains

Fall Leaf Colors in the Great Smoky Mountains

Each autumn the Smoky Mountains come to life more than any other season of the year.  With over a million visitors in the season to see the fall colors.  In the Smoky Mountain area of Pigeon Forge, the change from the greenery of the mountainside to bright vivid fall colors is often gradual and the fall foliage season may last for more than a month in autumn because of the greater diversity of plant species found in the forest there. With a wide variety of trees and plant life that are native in the Smoky Mountains all color change and flow takes place as three primary waves from the mixed hardwoods.  It is an amazing display of how Mother Nature uses a natural benefit in the plant’s leaf life cycle to simultaneously create another form of beauty for our benefit as well as the plants.
