One way to enjoy the colors of an NC Mountains in the fall is by taking a scenic drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway which runs through Alleghany County NC, Ashe County NC, and Watauga County NC.
For most of its 469-mile route, the Blue Ridge Parkway alternates between grand panoramas and up-close looks at lush forests and meadows. That’s no surprise considering that it runs atop the Appalachian Mountains between Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park and the Great Smoky Mountains of far western North Carolina. The parkway is a leisurely cruise rather than a roller coaster, with one exception—its most breathtaking section, the Linn Cove Viaduct, which skims the treetops as it winds around the parkway’s highest peak.
Be sure to visit Grandfather Mountain. Rising high above Linn Cove, this 5,837-foot peak offers great views and the famous “Mile High Swinging Bridge.”
Try to make it up to the NC Mountains this fall and take a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Furthermore, if you would like to stop in and check on the local
