Who it's for


Post Canyon's vast network of trails is kinda like the Phil's of Hood River—so if you enjoy mountain biking, pick your poison, and skill level. The trails also welcome hikers.

Gear


I ride around Bend on a hardtail, but I decided to step up my game and got a full suspension demo from Hood River bike shop, Mountain View Cycles. Owner Rafe Lehner hooked me up with a sweet women's Trek Fuel EX8 with 29-inch wheels.

Every once in a while, vistas of the Columbia River Gorge, Mt. Hood or the area's vast inland orchards peek through the trees. It's tough not to look out—but doing so while moving can land one down a cliff. I know; it nearly happened to me.

Bonus eats: pFriem Family Brewers


Full stop. In addition to pouring some of the most inventive beers in the region—OK, maybe the country—the menu is stellar, and the river location is a visitor's must-do. The bratwurst came proper, with warm sauerkraut and Liege potato salad laced with lardons. My companion had a veggie version of the pimento burger, equally delicious. Oh, and beers. A tall glass of Wit is just about the perfect libation for this perfect day.
