When is the best time to hike Larch Valley? In the fall, when the leaves are flaming yellow. Everyone knows this so go during the week, or early on the weekends. I left home at 630 and was rewarded with a fiery mountain meadow. Here’s some pictures, and 8 other hikes to avoid the crowds during larch season in the Rockies.
