Erickson-Apple-OrchardErickson is located just 2 miles/ 3 km east of Creston on Hwy 3, and is considered a bedroom community to its close neighbor. With over a dozen fruit stands, hothouses and private orchards, the Erickson area exhibits ideal growing conditions for producing bumper crops of cherries, peaches, apples, pears and other fresh produce.

There are some excellent cycling routes through this orchard region. Pick up a cycling map at the Creston Visitor Center. Also in the area is access into the Mt. Thompson area where excellent views of the Creston Valley, the Selkirk and Purcell Mountains can be reached with a 4×4 vehicle.

Erickson is part of the International Selkirk Loop’s super side trip Orchards Galore.
