East Fork Trail #650 Professional Reviews and Guides
"This moderately difficult ride begins with the most demanding terrain. The pedaling gets much easier near Robinhood Campground. Technical challenges include roots, embedded boulders, waterbars, and whoop-dee-doos. This fun, popular route parallels the East Fork Hood River and travels through some nice old-growth forest. This ride beings near Sherwood Campground, approximately 25 miles south of Hood River on OR 35."

"This trail parallels the East Fork of Hood River in the Mount Hood National Forest. River views. Bridge crossings. Sail along the shores of the East Fork of Hood River on this fantastic river run. Cool forest canopy, rushing water, and a rambling trail are all you need for a day of brilliant dirt running. The only obstacles on this route are mountain bikers who may buzz you on the trail."
--Lizann Dunegan, Trail Running Oregon (Falcon Guides).
