The arrival of fall is always a very bittersweet time here at Mountain Creek. While we love summer… as the temps start to drop and the leaves begin to change, our resort begins to buzz with some classic fall favorites, vibrant foliage and the lingering reminder that winter is approaching!
Kick off your fall the right way with fun for all ages right here in Vernon Valley.
Get outdoors and enjoy the views – the leaves are starting to turn into an array of colors and soon we’ll be enjoying full fall foliage across the rolling hills of Northern NJ. This beautiful spectacle can be enjoyed from many perspectives. Starting here at Mountain Creek, you and your family can enjoy a Scenic Sky Ride to the top of Vernon Peak where you can enjoy views of the tri-state area and the wind in your hair.
One of our favorites ways to move our legs in preparation for winter is by hiking at some of the iconic locations we have within miles of our resort. We’re talking about places like High Point State Park, Stokes State Forest, Wawayanda State Park, The Appalachian Trail (specifically The Boardwalk & Pinwheel Vista) boasting amazing views, great times and these hikes are a wonderful way to get outdoors and moving!
If you’re looking to check out the foliage from a new angle, give TreEscape Aerial Adventure Park a try. This treetop adventure is perfect for ages 4 and up and boasts an amazing experience whether your looking to conquer your fear of heights, try something new with a date or even as a workout. With 10 courses for all ability levels you’re bound to find your sense of adventure here.
Our 35th Annual Oktoberfest is just a few days away and this is a favorite for so many ages here in New Jersey.
