    Bike trip mid september

    Hello. We are planning a trip to Oregon in mid september, we are going to ride for 6 days, we have our minds in the black rock trails because we love jumps, we are not full on downhillers, we have 6" to 7" bikes that can be pedal up.
    Our plan is to spend 3 days at black rock but we are not sure what to do with the other 3 days, we are considering the hood river area and the trails around there but I have also run into some posts saying Oakridge is another area to consider. it would be ok for us to shuttle but we dont have problems pedaling up, we are not looking for full on XC trails, at least some jumps and drops.
    we want to be in the 2 hours range from portland because is our arrive/depart airport.

    Post Canyon in Hood River may be worth considering. Lots of shorter trails with stunts/jumps/giant-curving-wood-things-that-are-high-off-the-ground that terrify old dudes like me who ride hardtails. You can even take a paid shuttle to the top if that's how you roll. 60 minutes from Portland.

    you may like jumps but you should consider one of the excellent x country with some tech trails, dog river and 15 mile creek in the mt hood area come to mind, post canyon is a step down from black rock and I think for North Shore style riding you'll be disappionted.
