Apple Hill Run - Sunday November 6, 2022


Your Hosts For This Event:

Dolores and Rick Sanchez

Join us for a drive to the Sierra Mountain foothills in El Dorado County. We will take back roads through San Joaquin, Amador and El Dorado counties to one of the largest apple growing orchards in California. This run will take you through the farms and dairyland of central/northern California. We will drive through the towns of Ione, Plymouth, Diamond Springs and Placerville. There will be long straightaways and some twisties on Highway 49 after the town of Plymouth. Once we pass through the town of Placerville, we will take a 4-mile scenic drive on Carson Road to High Hill Ranch.

We will begin at the Joshua Cowell Elementary school parking lot near Yosemite Ave and Pestana Ave in Manteca.

We will end our drive at High Hill Ranch, which is one of the 55 ranches that make up Apple Hill. There you can enjoy arts and crafts, Hay Rides, and all kinds of apple related snacks and beverages. There are several eateries for lunch at High Hill Ranch. There is NO planned organized lunch. (You are on your own once we arrive at the High Hill Ranch Parking Lot- handicap parking available as well).

And if you have kids - BRING THEM ALONG as there are lots of things for them to do and see!  Check out the kids activities - see the link below:

Please be sure to gas up and be ready to go upon arrival at the meet up location.
