The Tanawha Trail runs 13.5 miles from Julian Price Park to Beacon Heights and parallels the Blue Ridge Parkway through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the region.  The light of sunrise amplified the spectacular autumn colors that can be found along the trail near Rough Ridge.  (Photo by Skip Sickler)

This week and weekend will be a great time to enjoy fall color in the N.C. High Country. Autumn hues are reaching peak above 4,000 feet. Maples, sourwoods, ash, yellow birch, witch hazel and oaks are all beautiful at Grandfather Mountain right now.

  • What a rush! Just getting up the mountain was an experience. The view from the top was great. Coming down we stopped at the zoo and had a great time. People were so friendly. We met a family from Africa-and I thought I drove a long way! Would love to come back some day.
