Hood River, OR. Rides out the backdoor

This is my start at posting some of the rides we do right out of our garage. No truck or trailer, just get on the bikes and ride! Why I have waited to try this on what looks to be the last nice fall day before six days of rain and snow down to 3000' is beyond me. And then again it might be just the reason, I wanted to find a route from one canyon to the next one to the south. With rain in the forcast this might be the last time before snow on the ridges and mud everywhere to the west of Hood River.

This is looking East from the top end of Green Point Canyon


Ottertail Lake and some great fall colors.

Mt Hood to the south

Mt Adams to the North in Washington


Found a very well hidden ridgeline trail (on a very old road) that was lots of fun!

Which ended up on some very beautiful old pine needle covered road. Just a note to go along with this photo, when I find road like this anymore I like to practice to the best of my ability "No trace biking" so that it looks like this for the next rider!

After about a 2000' descent, back to good old USFS single lane road one canyon to the south and a new route with more to come!
