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.

  • I visited Grandfather Mountain with my 3 daughters. We had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly. The young man who was providing enrichment for the animals was especially knowledgeable and patient as my children asked lots of questions. My daughter asked to adopt "Jane" as a result of our visit and the information she received. Grandfather is a beautiful place and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
