As we wind our way through Autumn, many people find themselves yearning for sweater weather and crisp changing leaves. But if you live in So Cal, you’re still stuck with warm summer-like days whether you like it or not. Fortunately, Lake Arrowhead is just a quick drive from the valley below. Our beautiful mountain offers a variety of trees, resplendent with orange, gold, green and yellow leaves. Through the crisp air, you can smell fallen pine needles and leaves, all of which combine with chimney smoke wafting from local fireplaces. Together, it’s the definition of a quintessential autumn experience.
This is a beautiful time of year to enjoy one (or more) of our many hiking trails. Don a pair of sturdy shoes with grip, throw on a hat, layer a flannel and woolen scarf, and grab your Hydroflask and head for the hills (literally!). The Lake Arrowhead Chamber of Commerce provides a great free list of local hikes and their difficulty here.
Lake Arrowhead Village boasts more than 50 shops, restaurants, and galleries. Grab a New England Hot Spiced Cider from The Tea Exchange and sip it while you stroll through the village. You may even be able to get an early jump on Christmas shopping. Or just treat yourself to some “must-haves.”
Skypark at Santa’s Village offers a variety of activities to enjoy in the crisp, fall weather. Rent a cycle or bring your own so you can enjoy mountain biking. Or, if you prefer less thrill-ride, more casually-earn-your-fitness points, try rock climbing. Skypark also offers zipline, rides, weekend visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and delicious restaurants. Check out the schedule for special autumn activities like “Pumpkins in the Pines,” which runs through this weekend.
Take in the true autumnal splendor of our beautiful mountain from the decks of the Arrowhead Queen. Changing leaves are in full display, and offer a gorgeous backdrop while the guides relate stories of Lake Arrowhead’s history and points of interest.
If you’re looking for adventure, try exploring on an ATV, which you can rent through Enjoy the Mountain. The scenery offers the perfect environment necessary to immerse yourself in fall foliage.
Few places offer the beauty and romance of Lake Arrowhead in the fall. Book one of our cozy (or grand) vacation rentals, grab your loved one, pour the beverage of your choice, and snuggle up in front of a roaring fireplace or flickering candles.
