Where is the “Fruit Loop”?
A wonderful day trip from Whispering Woods, the Fruit Loop is a 56 mile scenic drive along Hwy 35 that meanders through the communities, orchards, vineyards, farmlands, and forests of Hood River County. Hood River itself is along your path and you arrive at the Columbia Gorge and the mighty Columbia River.
The closest farm on the Fruit Loop to Whispering Woods Resort, right along Hwy 35 is member #16:Aubert Fruit Company, 6955 Hwy. 35, Mt. Hood.This location is a 40 mile drive from the resort heading north on Hess Road.
If you are visiting the town of Hood River, the official Fruit Loop starting point is member #1, Cherry Karma’s “Purple Pit Stop”, located at, 1120 Eastside Road, in Hood River.
Plan on taking a whole day touring the Fruit Loop and its irresistible offerings of: baked goods, fresh fruit, nuts, jams and jellies, berries, award winning wines; and say hello to a few friendly Alpaca while you’re at it.
Maps of the Fruit Loop are available at our resort and the Hood River Visitor’s center off of exit 63 on I-84 and at all Fruit Loop locations. You can also pick up a map at the Hood River Country Store, on the south end of the Hood River Valley, on Hwy 35.
