Southern Californians who want a taste of winter love to take a drive to the Backcountry when the snow starts to fall. Julian welcomes visitors all year long, but if you are coming to experience the winter wonderland, there are some things to consider before heading up the hill.
Fall is the time to pick your own apples and pears from Julian-area orchards. Many orchards are planning to be open for public “U-pick” opportunities this year. Check websites or call ahead to check dates, rules and restrictions or to inquire about reservations and confirm that fruit is still available.
