Fall has long been the favorite season of many Jackson Hole locals.
It’s quieter than the busy buzz of summer, but you can still get outside and enjoy the same outdoor activities. While the days get shorter and the weather is less predictable, you can still find dry and crisp days to hike, bike, float, and rock climb while also enjoying many of the indoor activities Jackson has to offer, such as museums and discounted dinners. And because November is one of the two least-visited months of the year, it’s possible to get last-minute dinner and lodging reservations.
Fall is the quintessential quiet time of year when you can wake up to a fresh dusting of snow tickling the mountains, listen to the sounds of elk bugling, watch in admiration as animals migrate in preparation for the incoming winter, and cozy up by an indoor or outdoor fireplace in relaxation.
With the tacky dirt surface that trail riders dream of, fall is the perfect time to hit the trails.
