We are only open early August to late November/early December each season. If you see hours listed here on TripAdvisor on dates outside this range, they are incorrect. Always check our website for the most up-to-date information. We are a Pick-your-own apple orchard offering family-fun activities including apple and cider tastings, hayrides and a nature walk through a "bamboo" forest. Our season typically runs from the first week of August to the last week of November or first week of December depending on weather and other factors.

Despite the less-than-perfect weather, our kiddos had a lovely time riding in the wagon, picking a few apples (I guess it was a little late in the season because our pickings were slim), and seeing all the different types of apples and choosing some to...More

We use to go to Skytop when our children were younger and we always loved it! Great memories! We would pack a picnic, eat the yummy doughnuts, take a hayride, ect. It's been several years since we went there and now our girls are teens,...More

This was the largest of the apple orchards we'd visited in mid-September this year. I think our biggest mistake was attempting our visit on a Saturday morning during the peak of apple season. It was a total mobscene. There must've been easily 4,000 people on...More

We have been coming here for the last few years for apples and this year was quite a disappointment. Apparently there was hail damage to the apple trees and it was very difficult to find even a bucketful even after searching for an hour. On...More

I'll keep this review positive (because we can't control mother nature) but we went really excited to be able to pick, and were told they had had a rough year, and everything was on the other side of the orchard. That's not what you want...More

Yes its $2 per person. It is a very bumpy ride, but if you enjoy the beautiful mountains, it takes you around back of the orchard and its beautiful. It takes to places you might not know was there otherwise. Otherwise... More
