A Year-Round Commune with Nature
Each season beckons you to explore nature’s gifts. Treat your senses to the color and fragrance of alpine flowers and trees. Spring is heralded by a profusion of wildflowers painting the countryside in pastels. Summer is an ideal time to splash under cool waterfalls and swim or tube in the rapids of the South Yuba. Fall gilds the forest’s trees with vibrant shades of yellow and orange. Winter blows in its blanket of snow, and a soothing whoosh of wind through the canopy of tall pines. At Harmony Ridge Lodge, we invite you to enjoy our year-round, surroundings in Nature.
