Fall color usually starts to reveal itself in mid-September and can last into November on the coast. Take a walk around William B. Umstead State Park in Raleigh, N.C. (shown): http://vstnc.co/SQznB

There are 20 miles of marked trails throughout 5,500 acres to explore. The park is open from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m in September and October, and 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. in November. The main park gates are closed and locked promptly at closing.
