Favorite Trails: Noble Canyon, Post Canyon
Post Canyon is located in Hood River, OR, about an hour and a half east of Portland. When I lived in San Diego, I hated driving more than 20 minutes to ride, but it's hard to complain now when the bulk of the drive is through the Columbia River Gorge.

The destination isn't that bad either. There is something for everyone here. Nice climbs for the goaters, fast and flowy singletrack for XC riders, jumps and stunts for DH/freeriders, and even a skills area.

Luckily, I met a local at the trailhead who let me tag along, but, as a consequence, not many pictures were taken. Here are a few that I got.

Here's a small portion of the skills area. In addition to several skinnies, there is a pump track, log rolls, and small jumps.

There are a lot of trail options that are marked well, but they aren't really marked well (I, of course, took the XC trail).Image

Jumps were a common theme of the FR trails.

If I had any skills, my TR would have looked more like this.

Post is probably in the top 5 funnest places I've ever ridden. Stopped here last year on the way home from Canada and it was the funnest stop on our trip. Met a local who gave us a full tour and was one of the nicest kids I've ever met. Rode a blue Ellsworth moment shortend to 5" of travel. It was actually his first ride on the bike.

Here are some pics

Barn Door drop. Looks small but it's about 10 out and 6 down. At the end of the ladder you're probably 10-12 feet off the ground and it's narrow.

The rhythm jumps
