Even though summer is over the weather remains fantastic and the roads still beckon… So let’s drive some back roads in search of some sweet apple pie. It’s time for our annual drive down to Gizdich Ranch in Watsonville, CA! One of our most popular destinations for some delicious apple pie or other fruit pies. You’ll want to eat a slice there and take a whole pie home with you. Maybe get some ice cream and apple juice too.
Saturday, October 31 (Yes it’s Halloween! but costumes are optional) @ 12PM noon.
We’ll meet up in San Jose at Almaden Plaza. Meet up point: Chevy’s Mexican, Almaden Plaza Shopping Center, 5305 Almaden Expy, San Jose, CA 95118
From there we’ll take some backroads down to Gizdich Ranch. The plan is to roll out at about 12:30PM.
Final destination is Gizdich Ranch, 55 Peckham Rd, Watsonville, CA 95076. If you just want to meet us there we’ll be there probably around 1:30-2:00PM.

Our group last visited Gizdich Ranch about a year ago, and I fondly remembered the delicious Dutch Apple pie that they offer up. If you are into some of the berries they grow locally like ollalieberry or raspberry they have those types of pie too, but for me, the apple pie is the one to have. A few of us chipped in on a whole pie and a pint of ice cream to enjoy the fresh pie a-la-mode right there on the spot. The pies did not disappoint!
There is also another drive early Saturday morning that fellow 86DRIVER Clipdat is organizing, starting from Alameda. If you want to join them for that and then hook up with us down in South Bay for the pie run you will have a full day of driving fun! To get all the info on that drive, consult our Events Calendar to see where and when that will be.
