Food always great! Great Pies and other apple treats. (Hamburgers, etc.) Lots of fresh and local produce. Many crafters in the fall. Fishing for the kids to do and more. Or you can always bring a picnic lunch and sit by the lake and watch the fun. Many unique gifts for holiday giving available. Great views, bring your camera for... More

quite large - lots of vendors - skip the apple pie - they don't believe in sugar apparently. there is a pond where for major $$, your child can reel in a 1 pound trout. wagon rides can be obtained through the orchard. oh hum. fudge factory or whatever they call it is ordinary.

The High hill Ranch is located in the heart of Apple Hill Country, but if you have even tried to tour Apple Hill you will know it is a lot of different roads spread out over a large area - so it is easy to miss most of it. Most people have a destination, and then maybe find something along... More

I have been going to High Hill Ranch for over 34 years, back when you could walk down the underground tunnel to the wine cellar. This is the place to go in all of Apple Hill. All my boys have caught their first fish here. The fishing is on the pricey side, but I always figured the memories were worth... More

This place has it all. It's right together with the Fudge place so you get a two for one stop here. It has beautiful grounds, very pet friendly which we appreciate, and plenty of apple offerings. I tried an apple cider milk shake - good but very sweet, glad I god a small. They also had mimosa's with champagne and... More

If you're a city dweller nice getaway. It's very touristy but fun. Go early in fall or early winter. Try and find the backroads. Real food a tad scarce. Eat in placerville.

While visiting Placerville, CA we spent an afternoon at High Hill Ranch. Just off Hwy. 50, turn onto Carson Rd., then follow the signs. It is a beautiful setting among the evergreen trees, with many craft booths to browse. You can watch the apple cider being made, as well as the apple pies. Every imaginable product made from apples can... More

I have been going to High Hill Ranch every fall since I was little. Their food is delicious (Dutch Apple Pie w/ice cream is my favorite) and the little shops are so fun to look in. It's always bustling so make sure if you are driving up on the weekend to go EARLY or else you will be parking way... More

We make a point of visiting High Hill Ranch every time we come to Apple Hill--mostly because of the fishing pond (and Al, the dear soul who oversees the fishing there!). The Apple Shakes and any food that has chicken that they make are excellent and a great deal for the price, too! We've gone both in low and high... More

This place is a must visit while at Apple Hill, huge grounds and just a beautiful place. I liked how they made the parking lot between the trees rather than cutting them down. As you make your way through the 'parking lot' you'll pass a lot of vendors and you can easily spend an hour going from stall to stall.... More
