Trail El Dorado
Very hard climb for beginners but if your more experienced should be a little bit more easier.Downhill is SO FUN worth the climb.

Trail El Dorado
May 9th the upper section of El Dorado will be closed for safety reasons during active forestry operations. This should last from the 9th to the 19th. Check with Hood River County or local shops.

You can link El Dorado to the 140 with the 1101 connector.

Pretty overgrown. Watch out for berry bush vines hanging over the trail. I trimmed a few at speed using my arm so you dont need to worry about those anymore

Trail is a bit on the dusty side right now, but most definitely flowy and fast!

Trail El Dorado
Awesome way up to the top of 3 Blind Mice/2 Chair climb is super easy and steady up hill the entire way through. Good shade for about 70% of the climb, this may change as logging activity picks up in Post Canyon. Mike did a great job designing and developing this trail. HRATS team are among the best!

Trail El Dorado
Rode today trail was fantastic, kudos to HRATS. A bit more work than I expected but full disclosure I was on my trek 850 hard tail - hard fork bike circa 1989. Looking forward to a re-ride when my new bike shows up in 2 weeks. New bike every 30 years :-)
