15th Annual Celebration/Opening of the Fresno County Fruit Trail

Molly Marquez, a lifelong Clovis resident, recently heard about all that the Fresno County Fruit Trail has to offer and was intrigued. She and her family made a delightful and delicious day trip, and enjoyed every tasty moment. “All this time, the Fruit Trial has been right in our backyard! We had the best time following the self-guided route and discovered many treasures along the way. We felt like we were on the farm, but we were still so close to home.” It was a two thumbs-up day for the Marquez family and an experience they will continue to enjoy.

Similar to a wine tasting trail, the Fresno County Fruit Trail meanders around and through Eastern Fresno County farmland. Take your time and drive along the rural roads for a true small town feel. There are plenty of stops, each offering their own special tastes from area farms.

The trail is a cooperative partnership between the County of Fresno, cities, farmers and other partners. Current trail information can be found online at www.gofruittrail.com. Fruit Trail maps can also be found online, and at member stands/stores.
