Fall in the Smokies: The perfect season to go on a Smoky Mountain Backpacking Vacation

Fall is the perfect season to get outdoors and see the beauty of the Smokies.

The biological diversity of the Great Smoky Mountains and the plethora of biomes translates into changing leaves for a month straight. A rainbow of color variations carpet the mountains during this season. The Smoky Mountains fall foliage transforms from deep green to reds, yellows, and oranges.

As the season progresses the temperatures begin to drop, ending in crisp evening sunsets where you can hear the wind in the trembling leaves while you enjoy a cup of hot chocolate on one of our Smoky Mountain hiking tours.

We offer 2 to 5 day backpacking trips in the Smokies as well as multiple options for Smoky Mountains day hikes. Book your trip now to reserve your spots in the most beautiful natural fall destination in North America.
