Nov. 1, 2013, view from the Visitor Center

Peak color has arrived this weekend in the South Mountains! Our two scenic vistas of the park require a strenuous hike on Chestnut Knob trail. For those not able or willing to hike, everyone can enjoy the beautiful range of fall color on the drive to the park. Our low elevations mean the leaves leading to the park are at peak color too.

For more information about visiting this location, go to North Carolina State Parks and Discover Burke County.
