This trail has treated me well from the first time I've ridden it. No matter how many times I go there it never gets old. whether I go with friends or family it always turns out to be a great time.

I'm from the east where soil roots and rocks are always rough and slick so my review of post canyon is probably a little colored by the sheer joy of western smooth dryness. The levels of difficulty vary across the board as do the available types of biking. I ride Super D style stuff and I loved this place! Plenty of freeride from super easy to big hucking. Some technical descents. Long XC stuff going up the valley. Terrain features for those who want them (skinnies and drops galore!)
For me Post Canyon was the best place I've ever ridden. No slippery shale. The roots are dry and smooth. There is easy shuttling access if you want. I encourage anyone visiting the area to swing by. Either of the big bike shops in town rents and or demos. They are good shops so it should be easy to get something you like to ride.
The only thing I could say that Post Canyon doesn't have is really technical terrain. It is super smooth so if you are looking for rough stuff go somewhere else like the east coast.

Customer Service

Go according to your riding style. Two days of exploring left me with miles of trails yet to explore.
Your route will largely determine the difficulty technically and aerobically.

Post Canyon is pretty sick. It took a couple years for me and my friends to hit everything, (we still haven't hit some of the skinnies) but it isn't huge. If you are a really good rider there are some nice drops, a sick fmx freestyle section, and there used to be a huge gap, (i don't know if they took it out or if they're rebuilding it but I know some people got hurt off of it) Anyway take a look at the videos on youtube and see for yourself.

Frankenstein is the most advanced, Chorus x through egg hunt has the most air, and family man through seven streams is the easiest. I try to ride all of them.

My favorite place to ride. Trails flow really nice. Go with someone who knows the trails or get a map,you will get lost. Stunts and landings built very well. Extremely dry in the summer.

Customer Service

Either park at the bottom of post canyon road or drive up riordan hill road. you can park at a staging area and the is a beginner freeride course on the right of the road. this is a good place to park for freeriders. Climb up the road to a trail called 8-track,its on the left and marked now. Great beginner to intermediate freeride trail, one stunt after another. when done with that hit dropout,near family man(the practice area). Bring body armour and have fun. peace

THis trail is AWESOME great freeride and north shore type stuff, alos some nice downhills. A lot of the stuff here is above my skill level. but it is still very fun. there are more then one trail in this place they all peal off the road and very in length.

Customer Service

before you do anything, go to the local bike shop Discover bikes. and buy a map of the place. When you get there, eather park at the bottom and ride up the gravil road, or shuttle up to the top. but dont ride up the trails, trust me, its hard. when you get to the top ride what ever trail fits your skill level. But be carefull not to get lost on any of the dirt bike trails.

These trails are pretty sweet. You can also ride a bunch of North Shore style obsticles that some highly motivated folks have built. Some of them are pretty sick. Some nice single-track and some short climbs. Watch out for motorcycles in the area to. Have fun and be safe.

Customer Service

I mainly ride the main loop through Post Canyon that is discribed in John Zilly's Kissing the Trail guide book for Northwest and Central Oregon which I highly recommend. I believe it's about 8 or 9 miles. Check with Discovery Bicycles in Hood River for the book or info.

Hood rivers version of the North Shore done up with that special flare for the scary. Try Frankenstein. Bring your body armor.

Customer Service

From the parking area at the end of Post Canyon Rd. head strait up the gravel road, way up. The road will make a sharp left turn and top out within a quarter mile. Pull over in the wide spot and look for a trail on the left side of the road. bomb down this trail and keep an eye out for a small side trail on your left. This is the start of Frankenstein, the most advanced trail in the system. Obsticals range from 5-15 foot drops to very narrow landings on the steep face of a washout.

Post Canyon has some great trails that a good range of riders can use. I see families on the trails below and huckers on the upper trails. Some nice stunt work, lots of time goes into it so ya better respect it. There is a nice road gap (about 7 ft high and 15 feet wide) that lets you launch over a truck if you want to. There was until recently a 16 foot drop off a sweet long bridge that got nearly 20 feet off the ground. This place is like our little north shore playground. Ride hard!
