Finding your way around the Syncline/Coyote Wall can be a bit of a struggle. There are unmarked or unofficial trails everywhere. But it’s a great ride. And the views from the heart of the Columbia River Gorge are spectacular. The geological feature known as the Syncline, though in this case a bit of a misnomer, is in the transition zone of Washington. This is where the flora, fauna, and weather begin a dramatic change from the rainy conditions of the west to the arid environs of the east. Because of this, the Syncline is a great place to go riding when things are still wet and cold in Portland.
