Where and When to See Natchez Trace Fall Colors

2018 Fall Color Update

Fall Foliage Alert - November 12

The Tennessee, Alabama and northeast Mississippi sections of the parkway are past peak, but still well worth seeing (some leaves still on trees, including the massive oaks, leaves on the ground and you can see deeper into the woods).

Central Mississippi is at/near peak.

Based on hundreds of photos taken during several fall foliage seasons on the Natchez Trace Parkway we have determined the following "average" dates of at or near peak fall colors.
