28. Darby, MT
Why go: Seventy-five miles from Missoula, Darby sits at the edge of the Bitterroot National Forest. What better time to explore this 1.6 million-acre forest, half of which is dedicated to the largest expanse of continuous pristine wilderness in the lower 48 states, than when fall foliage peaks late September through early October?
Where to stay: Triple Creek Ranch offers 27,000 acres on which you can go horseback riding, fly-fishing, stargazing, hiking, and more while taking in the autumn colors. There are 25 private cabins complete with a wood-burning fireplace. Most have private hot tubs for you to enjoy during chilly fall nights.
