Post Canyon MTB Trail

Oregon Post Canyon

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. You'll be thirsty and hungry, as the name implies, Thunder Island Brewing is the shot of love that you'll need.

How to Get There

about 1 year ago

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