    Where to ride around Hood River?

    I am heading to Hood River for vacation and hoping for some recommendations of good rides around the area. I hear Post Canyon is closest to town but what else?

    I haven't been, but based on reputation alone:

    Post Canyon for sure. 44 Trails around the east side of Mt. Hood. Syncline across the river. Not all of these are good or rideable at the same time, so you'll want to watch conditions reports as your trip approaches.

    Farther afield there's Sandy Ridge, Cold Creek, Mt. St. Helens, Bend...

    Go ride Dog River. It's up highway 35 about 20 mins. Post canyon will be dry but fun. Don't go to Syncline this time of year, it's over grown with poison oak. Most of the 44 trails will be riding great. Stop in at Mountain View Cycles, they are very helpful and will get you dialed in. Or, hire a shuttle to do the full Post Canyon from Kingsley resivor. You'll have fun.

    ^^^ Gotta agree with Lp, and I'm pretty sure Mountain View is doing shuttles to Kingsely twice a day.

    The best routes from there are NOT all downhill. You'll earn some turns, and see some great trails!

    Then, of course, Double Mountain beer and pizza is kind of required post-ride stuff.
    Whining is not a strategy.
