That is a hard question to answer, cause it changes. I would think the last two weeks of October would be a could a time to see the leaves.

For the last 3 years we have been there during the end of Oct -1st week in Nov and peak didn't hit until a week later and it didn't last for long. Peak color depends on the amount of rain fall and cool fall nights. See this web site that I watch each year with pictures of the progression in the Smokies. Once on the web site click on the seasonal link at the top. You can see pictures from the past years. They usually start posting pictures in Sept for the current year. It is much fun to watch especially if you have a trip coming up about that time.

I agree with previous poster; last week of October and the first two weeks of November have been the pattern the last three or four years.

We are having another drought year and unless we get some good rain in September (like tropical storm rains), we won't be seeing much color this fall. It also has to cool off quite a bit with the humidity leaving early.

Here is the TN fall color hotline number...


It has not been updated yet for this year... But when they do it will be helpful.
