E.At the beginning of November I like to visit the Hickory Nut Gorge. It sits on the eastern slope of the watershed, a good thousand feet deeper than most of the valleys in western North Carolina. As such, the area is one of the last to experience glorious fall colors. You can rest assured that the summit is somewhere between the 1st and the 14th.
I did two trips this year (2020), the first on November 4th and the second on November 9th. On the 4th everything was lively and pretty, but there was still a lot of green left. So I gave it a few more days and was rewarded with quite a change in appearance. It’s pretty amazing how quickly things change.
If you are visiting many sights as usual, you will see in the galleries below that I can access Morse Park, the Inn and Spa Beach, Flowering Bridge, Hickory Nut Falls, Rocky Broad River, and Rumbling Bald Trail Access Stopped. These photos are limited to the southern part of the gorge.
I divided the pictures into two galleries every day I visited. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like it!
