They are supposed to start in mid-October and peak near the end of the month:

Has anyone been up to the Smokies in the past few days? I'm hoping to make a trip to Cades Cove from Nashville to see the fall colors, but things still look pretty green on the online webcams. Perhaps the weekend of 11/10 will be ideal? Thank you in advance!!

Fall colors on the eastern side of the state are all about elevation. The high elevations change mid October and are likely past peak. Typically the valley changes the tail end of October and the first week of November. Probably the same as it is in Nashville. I’ve noticed the leaves really picking up some color the last few days

I was in the smokies yesterday and saw some amazing colors between 2,500 and 4,500 feet. I couldn't see higher because of my particular vantage point. Much better colors than even 3 days earlier. But I'm sitting in Knoxville now looking at the wind blowing leaves off the trees.

OP if you can arrange your trip for one week earlier that would be good - if not I've seen gorgeous red oaks in Cades Cove in mid November. Cades cove is scenic throughout the year.

Thank you all for the feedback! The trees in Nashville are looking really great this week, especially walking the trails at Percy Warner. I'm going to try pushing my mountain adventure to this weekend so I don't miss out on prime viewing.
