Yosemite National Park

Although Yosemite National Park, located in central California, is best known for its enormous cascading waterfalls, great granite cliffs and groves of giant Sequoias, this is one park that shouldn't be overlooked by leaf-peeping enthusiasts.

Fall foliage in Yosemite approaches its peak in late October and continues to linger on into November. It's difficult to ignore the rich, saturated colors of the maples, dogwoods, quaking aspens and oaks.
