Mountain Bike Post Canyon

Post Canyon - Search Nearby - Added by Ty Rauber

This is a pretty easy going route, good to warm up and get your feet wet. Distance: 25mi. Elevation gain: 2000 vertical feet. Duration: 3-5hrs.

By many accounts, Post Canyon has some of the most radical freeride action in the northwest. Because it is not on more regulated national forest land, locals were able to build extensive wooden features. The first mile and a half or so are on private land. Then it turns into State Park land and at the upper end it is Hood River County Forest land.

The lower section climbs gradually along a small meandering stream crossing back and forth over it 7 times, (which is how the "Seven Streams" trail got it's name). Up top, there are mind blowing wooden stunts built for experts, and a really fun practice area for learning called "Family Man". After the climbing effort is over, your reward is 4 miles of smooth, twisty, screaming single-track all the way home.

You can ride Post Canyon as an out & back, or connect up several trails to make a super fun loop ride. It rides best clockwise.

Post-ride pizza + beer

If you've got time to kill after your ride, head down to Hood River. Watch the kiteboarders and windsurfers, then grab a bite at Double Mountain Brewery...good pizza! And beer, of course.
