Syncline, Skyline, 8-track, Sandy Ridge

Devan Wardwell riding a Santa Cruz Nomad on  "Syncline" (see route on Everytrail)  on the Washington side of Hood River.   Some Head Cam Video here of the new trail in Sandy Ridge (see route).   Also the shuttle ride called "8-track" (see route)" in post canyon near hood river.  The trails here are very fast with banked switchbacks and speeds can get upwards of road bike speeds through the woods, here's some footage of the faster part of the Sandy Ridge trail down (blue trail).   Also here's a great cross-downhill mapped route called "skyline"
