If you’re looking for the perfect Columbia River Gorge day trip from Portland that includes stops at Hood River and Timberline Lodge, put the ‘Fruit Loop Tour’ on your list now.
I didn’t hear the words “Fruit Loop Tour” until a good few months into my time in Portland. My boyfriend heard a few locals at his work talking about it and he suggested it would be a great day away from the city – I mean who doesn’t love a good ol’ Columbia River Gorge day trip?
When he told me all that it involved – Portland to Hood River and Mt Hood, in addition to the Columbia River Gorge, I was so in. It sounded like the most quintessential day trip from Portland I could think of.
Fruit Loop challenge accepted!
