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 Donkey Boy
This probably should be a one way trail (towards Kleeway).

I was hoping to use this to duck out to Cardiac Bypass but some locals set us straight that just riding down Kleeway would be safer, more fun, and not much further than going down Donkey Boy as a shortcut.

Trail 101 Kleeway
I appreciate that it’s there, but Kleeway is just too damn flat to actually serve it’s intended purpose as a jump trail, even with no braking and hard p dealing between hits, it’s very, very hard to clear these jumps

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.

Trail 101 Kleeway
101 Kleeway IS the absolute golden trail for the average enthusiast and rider to zip down! Forget the trails above it that are maybe above your head, this IS the trail to go lap over and over again to build your skill and confidence!

Low enough to ride up too after work for most riders and avoid any shuttling, this trail is a gem of building sized berms and perfectly sized jumps for the normal human being crowd!

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!
