Built by Sam Pinner and Mike Estes in 2010-11 for its opening on Earth Day 2011. It was intended to get bikers off Riorden Hill Road who where upset with the changes made to 8-track. (8-track originally went straight down and had many TTF's that were built by the pioneers of free riding in Post Canyon before Hood River County took management of the trails) DH/FR bikers didn't want to do extra pedaling after 8-track was re-routed. To prevent a collision with a car, Sam and Mike quickly flagged this line and built 90% of it by hand. Jason Wells of IMBA arrived one day and connected the lower trail to the last creek crossing with his expertise. Matt Klee (RIP) would attend work parties and helped us organize the Hood River Area Trail Stewards. Our sincerest joy is seeing people discover this trails undulations, the flow, the berms, its heart and soul that was put forth to this particular trail should make Post Canyon very memorable from top to bottom. We saw a need to get bikers off the road. This trail allows all DH/FR bikes alongside XC/AllMtn bikes. Enjoy

Access Info
