The 2021 Fall Foliage Prediction Map is out to help you plan trips to see autumn in all its splendor in Georgia and other U.S. states.
The autumnal equinox is still about a month away on the calendar, but it’s not too early to start planning a fall leaf peering tour in Sandy Springs using the 2021 Fall Foliage Prediction Map.
In Sandy Springs, the week of Oct. 25 looks good for a fall leaf viewing trip.
No predictive tool is 100 percent accurate, but using the interactive map released Tuesday can give you a pretty good shot at seeing autumn leaves when they turn their most blazing reds, vibrant orange and sunny yellows.
Some top places to see fall leaves in Georgia to consider:
- Lookout Mountain
- “Lookout Mountain is home to three top-rated, separately ticketed, world-famous attractions. Each showcases the natural and historic beauty of the area with breathtaking views of the Tennessee Valley. Discover adventure at the tallest and deepest underground waterfall open to the public in the United States at Ruby Falls. Trek through Rock City‘s wonders and ‘See Seven States’ views. Ride the Incline Railway, one of the world’s steepest passenger railways.”
- Tallulah Gorge State Park
- “One of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern U.S., Tallulah Gorge is two miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep.”
- Red Top Mountain State Park
- “While best known for the 12,000 acre lake, Red Top Mountain is also a hiker’s haven. More than 15 miles of trails wind through the forested park.”
