Arguably the best tech trail at Post, but unfortunately recent trail work made the steep section easier. We need more trails like this in the Gorge.

The drop at the bottom of Hidden is undergoing restoration. Be prepared for changes in June.

Running pretty good. Really dry and a bit dusty. Ruts in the steep tech parts made for a more eventful section but it was overall still good

This was a fun trail if you love steep and technical. if you are riding with a group be sure to leave ample space between riders because it will get very dusty quick.

Family man is closed due to logging. The seasonal freeze thaw is going on right now and I’ll stay clear of the trials until late spring. Ride responsibly all.

Running great after the first rains of the year. Just a series of excellent corners. Truly, one of the funniest sections at Post.
