Visitor Center

Every year, visitors flock to the Western North Carolina mountain region to take in one of Nature's most awe-inspiring phenomenons -- the annual changing of the leaves. The prime season for "leafers" is the last of September and first two weeks or so of October, when the deciduous trees have given up on the green and sided with the rich golds, brilliant reds, and deep purples of autumn. And as we trade short sleeves for warmer attire to battle off the brisk winds, the leaves hold on tight.

When to Come

When's the best time to see the leaves change? This map from Appalachian State University's Department of Biology, conceived and constructed by Howard Neufeld and Michael Denslow, shows the progression of color change according to time and geography. In short, this map will help ensure you're at the right place at the right time to witness the leaves in their most colorful glory. 

The communities of Cashiers, Glenville, Sapphire and Lake Toxaway are positively buzzing during this time period, making it both a fun natural history and social experience. The annual Leaf Festival and other events that celebrate the changing seasons bring people from far and wide for fantastic sightseeing, friendly events on the Village Green, and a whole lot of fun. 

Want to know more? Keep an eye on our NEWS section for a complete coverage of the events.
