The fertile Hood River Valley is home to numerous small, family-run fruit orchards, delighting visitors to samplings of luscious apples, pears, cherries, peaches, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Hood River Valley is the largest pear-growing area in the United States. Wasco County is the number one producer of sweet cherries in Oregon, with the Goldendale area in Washington recognized for its delicious peaches.

One of the best ways to experience the fresh fruit paradise is to take the 35 mile scenic drive along the Hood River Valley Fruit Loop. Not only can you buy fruit or pick your own, you can also sample homemade pies and preserves, taste local wine, or take home a bouquet of fresh lavender.

Do yourself a favor and plan a day to experience the fresh fruit paradise in the Columbia River Gorge. You’ll be glad you did!
