    Where to ride along Columbia gorge with kids?

    We are travelling from Sacramento to Whistler over the next few days and decided it would be more fun to wing it instead of making plans. Spent today in bend and lo and behold they have an awesome pump track and trail at the Phil's trails network. My wife was quite impressed by my stumbling across this bike mecca.

    Since we are going to Portland by way of the Columbia gorge, I'd like to keep the good times rolling. What would you recomend for kid friendly singletrack along the gorge? Both kids have been riding single track since scootbikes and are up for some adventure.

    Thank you for the advice

    I bet the kids would have fun at Family Man, which is located in the Post Canyon network in Hood River. Follow Riordin Hill Rd. out of Hood River. A short time after the road turns to dirt you will hit the parking lot. Pump tracks, plus lots of kid friendly features. Single track loops leave out of there too.

    Dropped is right. Family Man also has a teeter, skinnies, jump lines. Fun stuff.
