Winding through the heart of Washington County’s vineyard country, this tour route beckons you to enjoy the agricultural and viticultural bounties of the Tualatin Valley, among bucolic rural scenery.
Embarking from the city of Sherwood, the Vineyard & Valley Tour Route passes alongside the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, an oasis of wetland and upland habitats within the city’s urban boundary, which is home to nearly 200 species of birds, 50 species of mammals and several endangered species of fish. You’ll soon begin passing a number of farm stands offering fresh produce; depending on the time of year, offerings include blueberries, apples, peaches, plums, hazelnuts, walnuts, raspberries, strawberries and marionberries. Many farm stands let you pick your own—it’s a great way to stretch your legs and immediately reap the rewards of your efforts!
