Come autumn, many of America's national parks are at their most visually stunning. It's not only the fall foliage that amplifies their beauty, but also the waning light casting the landscape in an almost magical iridescence. And after the heat of summer, the crisp air offers a welcome reprieve. Whether you prefer to drive through or hike through, these parks will prove unforgettable. Check out our picks for the ten must-visit national parks in the fall, with tips on what makes these places so special this time of year, from wildlife activity to fewer crowds.

I can't believe that you didn't include Glacier Natl. Park in Montana! We spend the week-end at Many Glacier Lodge in Glacier Natl. Park this week-end and it was absolutely gorgeous! Some lodges are closing for the season but there are still some open and the Park itself is always open. Just a drive over "Going to the Sun" road is a once in a lifetime experience.
