What's Fall Really Like in Chattanooga?

Autumn in Chattanooga

It’s Magical.

Roads covered in leaves + waterfalls and mountains filled with color — it must be autumn in the Scenic City.

It’s the first of October and you’re starting to see fall everywhere: in pumpkin spice flavored anything, in your favorite shows and movies, in your Instagram & Facebook feeds, maybe even in your dreams! But where can you truly experience fall? We would urge you to consider Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Here’s why:

Waterfalls, Waterfalls, Waterfalls

Views, Views, Views

Take to the endless hiking trails surrounding Chattanooga and you’ll get to enjoy some of the best autumn scenery in the United States, if not the world. The Cumberland Plateau is home to a great variety of trees, which means a great variety of color. You can go for a hike in one part of the state today and another part of the state tomorrow and see completely different colors! Not to mention that with autumn comes the perfect hiking weather.

Swinging Bridges, Fairytale Roads, Leafy Trails

It’s not all about the waterfalls and mountain views. We gotta show some love to the scenery along the way too! Many hiking trails near Chattanooga feature swinging bridges. And with many scenic mountain roads, sometimes the best part of the adventure is the road trip that leads to the hiking trail! Lastly, who doesn’t love that crunch beneath your feet as you pass through the peaceful autumn woods?
