Its Apple Picking Time!
When the heat of summer subsides and opens the path for cool and crisp fall days in the foothills, the desire to head up the hill to experience the fall harvest at Apple Hill overcomes me! It’s a seasonal tradition that should be seldom ignored.
Apple Hill is a collection of over 50 orchards, farms, vineyards, gardens and pumpkin patches approximately 45 miles from downtown Sacramento along Highway 50, and just outside of historic Placerville. While the area sees thousands of visitors each year between Labor Day and Thanksgiving, one can still experience this rural wonderland without being overtaken by tourists. You just need to know where to go and what to see that is off the beaten path.
