Fall Captured in the Blue Ridge Mountains - HomeInBrevard

Each fall, the Asheville and Western NC area attracts visitors from around the U.S. to take in the colorful landscape this region offers.  Given the 5,000 feet of elevation change within 50 miles of Asheville, the Blue Ridge Mountains offer one of the longest-running leaf color shows in the United States.  

Colors begin to change early October at the highest elevation areas in Western North Carolina and work their way down to the lower elevations by the end of October and into the first weeks of November. Both elevation and weather patterns have the biggest factor in Mother Nature’s Color Show…an early frost speeds up the leaves turning colors and warmer fall weather allows the leaves to stay on the trees and in full color for an extended period of time.

October 4-12:  Highest elevations are located north of Asheville which offer 5,000 feet and higher – this is in the Grandfather Mountain and High Country area of Western North Carolina.  

October 10-19:  Leaf colors increase in elevations above 4,000 feet in the Highlands, Cashiers and Lake Toxaway areas, southwest of Asheville.  Here, not only can you see fall color but you’ll see beautiful waterfalls as well.  

October 15-24:  Mountains surrounding Asheville in the 3,000 and 4,000 foot elevation range in places like Waynesville and Sylva which are 30 minutes west of Asheville.  Waynesville is home to a quaint downtown area, filled with one of a kind shopping and restaurants and throughout the year, local entertainment. Similarly, Black Mountain which is a quick 18 minutes east of Asheville offers a downtown of yesterday.  Birthplace of Roberta Flack and home to Billy Graham’s estate, Black Mountain is a quaint town, ideal for year round living.  North of Asheville, by 30 minutes is the town of Burnsville which has been a dry county for years, therefore merchant shopping and dining isn’t near as plentiful as areas such as Waynesville and Black Mountain.

October 20-30:  Asheville, which is situated at about 2,000 feet in elevation lights up with color about this time.  If you have ever wanted to visit the Biltmore Estate, this is the 10 day period where leaves are usually at their peak.  Retirement-popular town Hendersonville is also a place to mark as one to visit as it offers small town charm in a welcoming environment.

October 24-November 5:  Last but not least is the Lake Lure area, which is 30 minutes south of Asheville and known as the ‘Thermal Belt” area.  This scenic lake is home to movies such as “Dirty Dancing” and “Last of the

Mohicans”.  Lake Lure is home to Chimney Rock State Park.

When you hike through the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you are hiking through North Carolina’s section of the Appalachian Trail. Grazing the spine of the Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina’s 88-mile section of the trail is some of the most scenic along its 2,180 miles from Georgia to Maine. One of the longest footpaths on Earth, the Appalachian Trail celebrated its 75th birthday this past August.

There’s another 200 miles of the North Carolina Appalachian Trail along the Tennessee border. Some of the highest peaks this side of the Mississippi reside here, as well as vast areas of wilderness. You’ll find miles and miles of trails to hike through Pisgah National Forest, Nantahala National Forest and DuPont State Forest. You’ll find gorgeous waterfalls, take in Whiteside Mountain and Looking Glass Rock.

Western North Carolina, affectionately known to the locals as the WNC, is also home to Asheville, where the North Carolina Nature Center serves all 27 WNC counties and the Appalachian Trail cuts through the eastern edge of the city. Fall is a great time to hike. The weather is mild, the autumn trees are just beginning to turn color and the many small towns dotting the landscape are as hospitable as they come.

Southeast Discovery asked Dale Hamlin, long time developer and creator of Carriage Park, a master-planned community located in Hendersonville, if he would share with our readers of Southern Way of Life, what he sees as the major attributes of this Western North Carolina town…and why he chose Hendersonville as the location for his North Carolina development project, over a decade ago. 

Southern Way of Life in Western North Carolina - HomeInBrevard

Below are Dale Hamlin's comments about Hendersonville and Western North Carolina…

First and foremost, is the mild four season climate. It is a short sleeves and shorts spring, summer and autumn with few bugs on the alert. The air is clean and fresh and because of the elevation – 2100 ft to 3500 ft – the air movement is brisk, not stagnant and most of the breezes blow north to south.

Secondly, is the remarkably friendly yet sophisticated townspeople. Major services are excellent and close by. This small town boasts a full 72 piece symphony, the smallest town in the USA to do so. State Theatre has a playhouse in Flat Rock, a neighboring town just 3 miles away which boasts a year round venue. 

Outdoor recreation opportunities rival those available in any city, with the exception of an ice skating facility. Many golf courses, and country clubs are also available. The 500,000-acre Pisgah National Forest surrounds this magnificent location. City parks, open-air concerts throughout the summer months, two darling parades each year – pour mounting evidence on the absolute peace and fulfillment the families of the area enjoy. The hidden charmer is the size of the town, it could really be called an upgraded and sophisticated Mayberry. And – with the Blue Ridge Community College and Wingate University in Hendersonville, the town is ever so vibrant.

“Second move in retirement” is an adage about what to do when the upkeep of a single residence in retirement may be more than one wishes to take care of in an advancing age. It is very important to understand this possibility, and the value of not having to plan to leave town. Hendersonville is blessed with a wide variety of such senior accommodations, meaning that social, religious, and entertainment options do not have to be forgone if a senior needs assisted-living at some point. Residents may need to move only a couple of miles away into the more caring environments of adult villages, thereby continuing their lifestyle of enjoying Hendersonville and all they have become accustomed to here. This is important to note because moving into assisted-living is a big step for a retiree to do at some point in their lives. Being able to reside in the same town, in this case Hendersonville, provides folks the ability to keep many attributes of their life the same.  Attributes of daily life they have come to love and enjoy. In other words, a move to Hendersonville can and should be a permanent move with no reason to ever again need to relocate, which can be increasingly difficult as people age. 

Two major population centers are within an hours drive. Greenville/Spartanburg, SC has a population of 1.2 million and is 45 minutes away. Asheville, NC has a population of 450,000 and is only 20 minutes from Hendersonville. Asheville's Regional Airport offers 45 daily flights and is just 15 minutes from Hendersonville.  Greenville/Spartanburg's International Airport is also relatively close by, at 45 minutes distance. 

I-26 a major US Interstate, is directed right through Hendersonville and its easy access allows a resident of Hendersonville to easily connect with other interstates (such as I-40 or I-85), thereby providing automobile access to anywhere in the United States.

Churches, synagogues, restaurants, hospitals, other intensive medical facilities, such as a modern oncology facility are readily convenient… Grocery stores including sumptuous high end specialized gourmet markets, and open-air farmers markets offering the freshest of fruits and vegetables are convenient to all residents of Hendersonville.  And yes, Hendersonville does have its very own Mast General Store.

There is no problem with services living in Hendersonville as the town is large enough to offer a wide selection, small enough to provide customer care and a friendly shoulder to lean on.

Regional professional baseball is available in Asheville. There is a charter trolley to take residents and pick them up at the Asheville Field. High school sports in town provide wonderful and refreshing outlets for sports-minded folks and a sense of community. The Hendersonville library has consistently ranked as the #1 library in North Carolina for its size and is crawling with bright energetic folks enjoying the offerings.

Should a physical trauma occur, Memorial Mission Hospital in Asheville is connected with Duke University and is one of the South's top 7 hospitals. It has a helicopter available 24/7 to respond. Pardee Hospital has installed a new landing pad at its facility.

The adjacency to the Pisgah National Forest, part of the Great Smokies, is a coveted benefit. The Blue Ridge Parkway is about 8 miles from Hendersonville and this provides access to what is the nation’s most well-regarded and frequented national park. The year round majesty of the forest is breathtaking. The waterfalls, tunnels, hundreds of miles of well-marked trails, access to Mt Mitchell (the Eastern half of the United State's highest peak) which is about 40 minutes away – all contribute to non-stop accolades.

The Biltmore Estate is 15 miles from Hendersonville and visible from Carriage Park. America's largest home, perched on a knoll, is on the northwestern side of Hendersonville. Sierra Nevada Brewery, this nation's largest and most successful microbrewery for boutique ales, has just purchased a site in Henderson County to be the new East Coast Headquarters. They are currently located in Chico, California and have conducted a nationwide search for their second location. They chose Hendersonville due to the quality of water they will have access to, the highway system and the genuine beauty of this area. Sierra Nevada Brewery is destined to become a major attraction as the company will feature a restaurant as well as facility tours. 

Retirees are really interesting folks. Those who choose to relocate at retirement are fascinating, as many who relocate at this stage of life have adventurous minds to try new things.  Many have been too busy working and raising their families. We find many choose to relocate to Hendersonville and Western North Carolina as they are attracted to all this area has to offer – an enormous range of vibrant activities, many which involve enjoying the 'great outdoors' . They also give back to the community in glorious ways. Our performing arts venues are impressive, our philanthropic activities are full speed ahead and the quality of our community is enhanced each time a new family takes up residence in Hendersonville.

Todd Branham, a partner in Long Cane Trails LLC, of Brevard, North Carolina has designed and built mountain trails in many locations in the USA as well as in Central America during the 12-year history of the company. But he considers the project to plan, design and build nearly eight miles of trails in the Bracken Mountain Forest this year to be one his most exciting and successful accomplishments.

Long Cane Trails Builds A Winner - HomeInBrevard

“It was a real challenge right from the beginning,” Branham says. “There was stiff competition for the project and of course we were delighted when our bid was selected. Another source of satisfaction was the strong support from the entire community, including over 85 volunteers who worked with us during the construction.”

The new trail is a major linkage between Brevard and the Pisgah National Forest. It averages four to five feet in width and is carefully contoured to the land for effective drainage control and to accommodate a combination of mountain bikers, runners, hikers and walkers. The maximum vertical grade is 10%.

Long Cane Trails Builds A Winner - HomeInBrevard

Several special events on the new trail are scheduled for the remainder of the year, including an organized hike, a running event and an organized walk.

Branham owns and operates a related business – Blue Ridge Adventures – formed in 1998. He organizes and promotes mountain bike races such as the five-day Pisgah Stage Race that will take place in the Pisgah National Forest from September 17 to 22.

Branham is a native of South Carolina who earned degrees in marketing and management from the University of South Carolina. He has lived in Transylvania County for the past 12 years. Come see what adventures the mountains of Transylvania County can offer you.
