If you are a big fan of fall colors like us, you want to catch them at the right time. This interactive map assure you to visit your favorite forest when its colors are breathtaking.
The most glorious days of fall color – known as "peak color" – occur when the largest number of trees change foliage, from shades of green to a rich autumn palette. The timing of the color peaks varies from one year to the next. One year, this could be the first week of October, but the following year, the peak color might not appear until Halloween week.
So what can you do to make sure you do not miss it? When you try to search for random color predictions online, you usually only find out-of-date information (color prediction for Colorado in 2017 will not help you much). Instead, use the Fall Foliage Forecast Map at SmokyMountains.com. It is not only very easy to use (just move the cursor under the map to the date you plan to travel), but it is based on new data and new forecast models updated every year. This maximizes your chances of catching and enjoying the peaks of color wherever you are.
