;e best local road trip to appreciate the fall colors, according
to Visit Loudon County Executive Director Rachel Baker, is scenic
U.S. Highway 321 from Lenoir City to the Great Smoky Mountains
National Park. “As the Lakeway to the Smokies,” she says, “Loudon
County o;ers postcard-worthy views year-round, but our lake views
with the spectacular fall foliage that East Tennessee is so known for are
truly special. Loudon County’s fall events like the Corvette Expo and
Tennessee Valley Winery’s Pig & Turkey Roast o;er experiences that
guests and locals love.”
Nicole Yates Peels, Director of the Monroe County Department of
Tourism, also has an autumn-colors drive to recommend: “When the
temperatures get a bit cooler, nature takes over and enhances the scenic
beauty here in Monroe County with a beautiful masterpiece of fall
foliage to be seen across the Cherohala National Scenic Byway.”
Along with September dates for the Cherokee Fall Festival and the
National Muscadine & Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, Peels invites everyone
to join in the county’s longest-running tradition in October.
