There’s numerous riding options, anything from big gaps to flowing downhill and twisty cross-country. You can link it together in countless ways. The vast majority of the trails are on the Hood River County Tree Farm which brings in about 30% of Hood River County’s budget. These trails are a secondary use of the forest and are run by the Hood River County Forestry Dept.”
