We didn't expect to see fall colors this late in Nov, but surprisingly Petit Jean is pretty with fall colors. We went on several hikes (Rock House Cave, Bear Cave, and Cedar Creek trail), and the view was magnificent! We stayed at Mather Lodge cabin - it even has a fireplace built by the CCC in the 30s, and the lodge provided a bundle of firewood - really enjoyed the peace and quiet by the fireplace. We ate at the restaurant at Mather Lodge. For breakfast, we had to wait for a long time (close to an hour) for the food after we ordered it. But for dinner, the food came much faster. All in all, this is a great place to get away from your busy, city life.
