    Default Day hike sections in the Fall

    Going to be around Lake Blue Ridge this fall. What sections have the best scenery for day hikes?

    I have only done the DyerGap area.

    I did Springer to Ocoee back in March. If your up for a little drive south, I enjoyed the Springer Mtn to Skeenah gap rd sections a lot. I got to see some of the AT (was kind of a circus that day) and then left the crowd as the BMT took off on it's own. Enjoyed the Three forks area, crossing the bridge and some nice views. I hit it before the leaves came out though so I had some unobstructed views. Closer to Blue Ridge lake, Falls Branch is worth a look. It attracts some weekend crowds but not bad. You said you've done the Dyer Gap area, that was a favorite too. Further North, Big Frog was another favorite. You'd probably get a nice view up there no matter the leaf cover.

    The section between Hwy 60 and Hwy 60 (Skeenah Gap Road north and south) is pretty unremarkable but I haven't done the Brawley Mtn piece. Springer to Hwy 60 (first crossing of it) is really good.
