Hood River is a sailboarder’s mecca, and they come from around the world to catch the winds funneled through the Columbia Gorge. When the winds aren’t blowing, many windsurfers head to the hills to mountain bike. Hood River has dozens of singletracks within an hour’s drive that are open to bikes. The section between Hood River and Mosier runs through pine and oak savannas with views of the Columbia River and Cascade peaks. Basalt cliffs line the road and provide perches for raptors. A detour to Panorama Point Park is highly recommended, especially in April and May when the orchards are blooming. Tread: Paved road, closed to motorized vehicles. Hazards: Falling rocks are a hazard near cliffs.

Not really a mountain Bike Trail because the road is nicely paved. However it is totally worth doing and is a great family fun ride!! The views are incredible and the history here is quite cool. Have Fun! PS-Bring a few dollars to pay for parking at the trailhead.
