This demanding outing climbs through Post Canyon and over some adjacent hills. The trip is a grab bag of conditions and difficulties. It is composed of two loop and two out-and-backs. The trip involves 4.3 miles of gravel and dirt roads and 3.7 miles of single-track. The roads are in fair conditions with some areas of large loose rocks making climbing difficult. Frequent dips and climbs require excellent bike-handling skills. While this ride is not ridden for its scenery, on bright days, Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams are within view. Post Canyon is just west of the city of Hood River.

I ride this trail about once a week, more in the summer. In the winter, it's best to stay up high, where it's dry. Try to find the new stunts/drops up near the Riordan intersection. If your just gonna sesh and you don't want to ride all the way (lazy), then drive up Riordan, keep going when it turns to gravel, and look for parking spots/trailheads. Let 'er rip. There is a plethora of trails in this area, and if you're not prone to getting disoriented, go nuts and ride everything you can find, you wont be dissapointed. Bring water for long rides, bandaids for seshes. Watch out for the backwoods hillbillies, I've seen strange stuff up there through the mist.
