During the summer months, the Trinity is a sought-after spot for some serious river fun in the mountain sun, but fall is a very special time of year here as well.

And from time to time guests staying at the home might even have the potential possibility of taking part in the harvest, depending on what the farm has going on during their stay.

Plus, you won’t want to miss out on the photo-worthy colorful foliage!
From Green to Yellow
Spring and summer bring a vibrancy of lush, greenery to the Northern California coast. Whether it’s deep in the forest, high above the canopy, or along the walls of Fern Canyon, autumn makes the bright chartreuse and gorgeous viridescent shift to a stunning kaleidoscope of wonderful warm browns, rich purples, and vivacious reds, oranges, and yellows. One of the best times of year to experience this immaculate change is during the harvest season. With California having one of the longest and most diverse fall colors than anywhere else you’ll be surprised to find that at any point during autumn, you can come across a wide array of fall foliage.
While some might assume that the East Coast is where you should be for the fall foliage, truly everywhere along the Northern latitude has the chance to make a memorable impression. The difference in California is that as the elevation drops the colors begin to turn, which means you’ll be able to experience beautiful colors from September through November. The best part is that if you miss peak season on the east, all you have to do is just drive to a lower elevation for you to experience peak season on the west.
According to California Fall Color, right now, the Northern Coast hasn’t begun the transformation into fall, but that means it’s a perfect time to book your redwood forest vacation to ensure you’re here during that peak foliage time! Keep updated with all the fantastic fall foliage reports of California, here!
