question about Pisgah National Forest in North CarolinaHi all,
on a rather long trip this fall, we'll be getting to Asheville, Brevard, Pisgah forest in late October. Probably south of Brevard the last couple days of October. Are there any leaves on the trees still? During an average year, I mean; I realize no one knows what MOther nature will bring in 2013.

1Two sites to look at:
USDA: fall colors in western NC
Looks borderline, but very close (on the average). And, as you say, no one can say yet (there are numbers you can phone later in the year). The area is our favorite in NC. Lots of nice walks and hikes. Brevard itself is lovely, with lots of excellent restaurants (e.g., Square Root, a very nice restaurant in an alley, just across from a gourmet chocolate store). Where will you be south of Brevard? Visiting folks in Connestee Falls, perhaps? We seriously considered buying a house for retirement there. Enjoy your trip. Maybe you'll see one of Brevard's famous white squirrels (we didn't see a one). We did enjoy Asheville, but enjoyed Brevard more.

No, not visiting anyone except maybe a couple of couch surfers. I traveled through the area a couple years back and will take my wife this time. Thanks for the restaurant tip :)
I'd LOVE to retire in that area but my wife insists on staying in Nebraska (friends/family). sigh.

4Keep in mind the higher elevations in the Smokeys/Appalachians can be pretty cold at night, and by that time of year, late Oct, most the leaves are off the trees.
Trip Advisor is far superior for info on a specific areas and the forum there is far more active.
