Autumn at Eagle Creek Ranch
Seasons:    Spring   |  Summer  |  Fall  |  Winter  
As the heat of the summer yields to the more moderate temperatures of autumn, and kids return to school, the Trinity Alps become a haven for hikers, anglers, and solitude-seekers. The bass bite that went deep in the summer months returns to surface-level, empty trails lead hikers to the high country in privacy well into October, and ripe fruit and acorns bring black bear to the ranch for days at a stretch. Around the end of October, the autumn colors bring color to the alps for a final natural hoorah before the onset of winter.
   
   
   
 
The Best of Autumn at the Ranch
Hiking
The cooler fall temperatures make hiking the high country a pleasure in the fall. Most trails remain open until October 15th, when most are closed off by the Forest Service for the winter.
Horseback Treks
Horseback riders also take advantage of the cooler temperatures of fall for some of the best backcountry experiences of the year.
Fishing
Bass and trout fishing on the lake resume surface action after being driven deep by summer sunshine. On the Lower Trinity, steelhead fishing heats up.
Fall Colors
Rivaling a New England landscape in some years, the autumn leaves bring closure to the annual cycle, and provide weeks of nature's beauty for visitors and residents.
