Aha, another budding backpacker--two of them! That's how I got started, and at 79, although slowing down quite a bit, I'm still going!
Our family first discovered Oak Glen last year. Had a great time picking apples. I didn't get to the preserve. How is it? And are they picking apples now?
The preserve is nice. It's a little dry now obviously, but getting up there in the spring would also be fun (there's a stream that runs through it).
They are picking apples now. I believe Sept 5 was opening weekend.
