Amazing place. There is sunset series on Thursdays. One can enjoy amazing view from top of the mountain with live music and freshly baked apple cider donuts. Their peach ice-cream is delicious. During fall you can go for apple picking. Parking is free. Enjoy with your family and friends!
Beautiful spot to sip on-tap hard cider and enjoy the spectacular view. Unlike a lot of orchards, there’s plenty to see without paying to go pick fruit, though you can do that as well. If you don’t feel like waiting for the tractor ride to get out to the orchard, you can also just buy the fruit from the orchard at their farm stand. My absolute favorite part was the Bold Rock hard cider sampler; worth the drive just for that! Do keep in mind that the drive to get up there is very very steep and curvy; use caution!
