Don’t forget, fall is one of the best times of the year to visit West Yellowstone. The town sits at an elevation of 6,666 feet, just outside of the West Entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Nestled among majestic mountain peaks, and surrounded by natural scenic wonders, the town is rich in history and activities.

The West Yellowstone area is at its best in the fall for hiking, scenery, fishing and wildlife watching. 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. Temperatures create once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities in and outside of Yellowstone National Park.
