Discover almost 800 miles of scenic hiking paths that wind through auburn-tinged forests. Hear the birds sing and watch wildlife busily prepare for the winter ahead. Fall getaways at Wuksachi Lodge start at just $155 in October and $115 in November, making fall truly a perfect time to recharge the senses.

The arrival of the season also heralds the beginning of the delectable harvest season. The expert chefs at the Peaks Restaurant blend the flavors and colors of fall into signature cuisine. Sustainable and local fresh fall flavors will include a signature Sierra dinner of tender ruby-red trout seared in a savory sage brown butter sauce, and creative dishes for quick picnic lunches to-go. The culinary surprises in store are certain to suit individual tastes as well as hearty post-hike appetites.

For those looking for a quick, invigorating mountain escape with minimal planning and maximum enjoyment, Wuksachi’s Fall Foliage Package is just right. Starting at just $235 in October and $189 in November, visitors will receive two nights stay at Wuksachi Lodge, picnic box lunches for two, a field guide card, and a keepsake, copper-dipped Sequoia pinecone.

Fall’s crisp evening air and early sunsets provide the perfect excuse to get outdoors and explore by moonlight. The park invites all night owls to join the fun fall activities and events in Sequoia, ranging from stargazing to spookier adventures. Sequoia Octobers traditionally beckon visitors to take part in guided lantern tours, quests to learn about creatures of the night, pumpkin carvings, and other fun Halloween traditions; along with nighttime tours of Crystal Cave for those seeking more chills and thrills.

Who says astronauts are the only ones who have the chance to get acquainted with Outer Space? Visitors have the chance to greet the shining moon and constellations atop Moro Rock’s 6,725-foot granite summit.
