I met up with Scrap 487 and we chk'd out some great stuff just out of HoodRiver . Fantastic views of the gorge and HoodRiver valley were just a few of the treats that awaited out mudhungry soobs....although we never found a alot of mud it was abit dry in most places.

We took Country club road out of HoodRiver from (exit 62 East I-84) and followed it up several miles and turned right onto Riordan rd and headed into the woods! All I can say is Wahoo! This place was a mtn bike/motorcycle /atv/soobie heaven! Some of the folks up there erected serveral dirt bike ramps for jumping!

The farther we went I just got better at every spur rd we could find...
Lot's of fun hillclimbs, tight tracks, moguls, quarry pit and abit o' snow to play in too! We got snowed on for abit then the sun came out.

We had a great time wheelin' !!! Here's a few pics until my camera batt. died....DOH! We even got some great video too!

I did clean that hillclimb first try with my outback too! It's on video!

I think I've only touched just a tip of the berg out there....
Blowdown Ridge, Deadpoint ridge, Blue ridge, middle mtn are my next quests to check out soon... only a few miles from Parkdale! So far there is more than enough trails for everyone to have fun on! FRS radios a must!:banana:
