“A smile-inducing singletrack that is embedded with rocks.
— Eric Ashley
The Post Canyon Recreation Area is a multi-use trail network formed of Hood River County property and a patchwork of State Park, USDA Forest Service, and private land. The area is also an ongoing tree farm operation, so be aware of potential closures. Expect traffic in both directions and yield to hikers and equestrian riders.
Ken A (also sometimes referred to as a part of Dirt Surfer
) provides a narrow ribbon of singletrack littered with embedded rocks. The more than 1.5 mile descent is at a surprisingly good grade and little pedaling is required to keep a fun pace.
Along the way, you'll make a crossing over Road 2400
, ride/jump over an angled log that sneaks up on you, and, at the finish, climb your way out of a steep gully. The rest of the time on this trail is spent finding flow and picking lines, and of course, smiling.
