Fire Safety, Trail Work Information, Water Bottles and a Fundraiser!
Heads up for fire safety: The Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) has raised the Industrial Fire Precaution Levels (IFPL)s to Level 3 in the area known as MH-4 effective July 16. This includes all ODF protected lands west of Hwy 35. The MH-1 area, which includes ODF land east of Hwy 35 is already at Level 3.
This means all Hood River County OHV trails will be closed to motorized use until further notice. Please help spread the word.
Also: ODF requires anyone driving on gravel roads to carry a shovel and a gallon of water or a large fire extinguisher for fire safety. (Not a bad general practice for all trail use, including shuttles in Post Canyon.
Stay safe and do your part to protect our trails!
44 Trails Work Party: Our friends at 44 Trails will be throwing a work party this Sunday, July 25th at the Little John Snowpark. For more information, head over to their Instagram @44Trails for more information.

If anyone is looking for a great addition to their hydration quiver, stop by Mountain View Cycles, Dirty Fingers, Bear Grass Cycles or Oregon E-Bikes and pick up one of the most technologically advanced Specialized water bottles available.
