It’s time to soak in the Fresno County Blossom Trail, a resplendent self-guided 60-mile scenic loop east of Fresno.
The views are drop-dead beautiful and inspiring. You can’t help but marvel at nature’s canvas. Just like spring itself, it’s the perfect antidote for the blahs or a case of weekend don’t-know-what-to-do.
Thousands of people drive or bicycle a route lined with meticulously groomed orchards featuring millions of almond and fruit buds.

This weekend’s weather forecast calls for a passing morning sprinkle Saturday followed by sunshine and temperatures in the 60s.
Eastside communities use the blossom season to showcase their restaurants, cafes, and other businesses. In addition, several events provide the option of combining blossom viewing with a favorite activity such as cycling or wine tasting.
