In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

This is a dense network of trails with many technical sections. Hard climbing (or shuttling) is rewarded with long steep descents and occasional views. Several trails have man-made stunts built into or next to them.

Trailhead: From Hood River, drive or ride west on Oak St./Cascade Ave. for two miles to Country Club Road on the left. Head up Country Club Road for 1.5 miles to Post Canyon Drive on the right. Follow Post Canyon Drive for approximately 1/2 mile to the end of the pavement and park there.

Seasons: All

Note: This is the local after-work spot. Local riders have spent countless hours building stunts and trails throughout the area; keep your eyes peeled, as the stunts are often camouflaged by the dense forest. The trail network is constantly changing, so new trails may not appear on maps. Out of courtesy to mountain bikers, most motorcycles stick to the upper portions of this area, but keep your eyes and ears open for them.
