Where and When to See Natchez Trace Fall Colors

Based on hundreds of photos taken during four fall foliage seasons (2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014) on the Natchez Trace Parkway we have determined the following "average" dates of at or near peak fall colors. 

Tennessee is typically at or near peak foliage colors from October 20 thru November 9.

northwest Alabama and northeast Mississippi are typically at or near peak foliage colors from October 23 thru November 10.

central Mississippi is typically at or near peak foliage colors from November 1 thru November 20.

The national park service website for the Natchez Trace Parkway has some great info about where and when to view fall colors on the Trace, including weekly reports from this year with dates and locations, see: www.nps.gov/natr/planyourvisit/fall-colors.htm
