Summary:
I'm from the east where soil roots and rocks are always rough and slick so my review of post canyon is probably a little colored by the sheer joy of western smooth dryness. The levels of difficulty vary across the board as do the available types of biking. I ride Super D style stuff and I loved this place! Plenty of freeride from super easy to big hucking. Some technical descents. Long XC stuff going up the valley. Terrain features for those who want them (skinnies and drops galore!)
For me Post Canyon was the best place I've ever ridden. No slippery shale. The roots are dry and smooth. There is easy shuttling access if you want. I encourage anyone visiting the area to swing by. Either of the big bike shops in town rents and or demos. They are good shops so it should be easy to get something you like to ride.
The only thing I could say that Post Canyon doesn't have is really technical terrain. It is super smooth so if you are looking for rough stuff go somewhere else like the east coast.

Recommended Route:
Go according to your riding style. Two days of exploring left me with miles of trails yet to explore.
Your route will largely determine the difficulty technically and aerobically.

I've heard there is stuff further up Mt Hood.

Summary:
THis trail is AWESOME great freeride and north shore type stuff, alos some nice downhills. A lot of the stuff here is above my skill level. but it is still very fun. there are more then one trail in this place they all peal off the road and very in length.

Recommended Route:
before you do anything, go to the local bike shop Discover bikes. and buy a map of the place. When you get there, eather park at the bottom and ride up the gravil road, or shuttle up to the top. but dont ride up the trails, trust me, its hard. when you get to the top ride what ever trail fits your skill level. But be carefull not to get lost on any of the dirt bike trails.

Summary:
These trails are pretty sweet. You can also ride a bunch of North Shore style obsticles that some highly motivated folks have built. Some of them are pretty sick. Some nice single-track and some short climbs. Watch out for motorcycles in the area to. Have fun and be safe.

Recommended Route:
I mainly ride the main loop through Post Canyon that is discribed in John Zilly's Kissing the Trail guide book for Northwest and Central Oregon which I highly recommend. I believe it's about 8 or 9 miles. Check with Discovery Bicycles in Hood River for the book or info.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Syncline, Buck Creek (WA side) Knebal Springs and 8 Mile south of Hood River.
