Yellowstone Comes Alive in the Fall

Yellowstone takes on a new beauty in autumn. The park takes a collective breath as it settles into a season of changing leaves, sunlit days and wildlife preparing for the winter. We think it’s one of the best times to visit Yellowstone. One visit, and you will too.

With fewer visitors to the park, you can take advantage of incredible fall fishing, wildlife photography, taking a backcountry hike or simply strolling the charming shops in West Yellowstone. The season brings spectacular scenery and the annual elk mating season where huge bull elk battle for their harems with eerie, echoing bugles across wide valleys. And fall temperatures create once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities at Old Faithful and geyser basins with West Yellowstone being the closest entrance to these spectacular park attractions.
