    i am looking for some feedback here on these two places. i have been to post many times and think the world of that place, it's kick ass trails, the skillfully built stunts, and laid back attitude. there is no local "ownership" or mtb snobbery at post, and i really dig that. the locals are eager to show you around, and after 10 or so times there, you feel like a "local" yourself. so my question is which is better, falls city or post? i have a long weekend coming up, and i have never been down to falls city. i have heard wonderful things about that place, and now i have to pick one. you people who have ridden both places, please give me some input about falls city. i already know about yhe package deal at post, surrounding trails,beer, food,hood river is a cool
    town...... i just want you guy to rate the riding...... thanx! trev

    oh ya, i don't intend for this to turn into a "my riding spot is better than yours" . i know both places have their strengths, or i wouldn't be askin' you guys for advice. just want to know if you had to pick only one to ride, which would it be?

    FALLS CITY
    PLUS-
    area is designated for mountain bikes only
    better built, well thought out stunts
    much much better flow
    awesome "basic training" area
    smooth trails
    trees give shade, keeping the whole riding area cooler

    MINUS-
    have to push / ride up
    nothing really big
    only need a little bike
    farther drive from Portland

    POST CANYON
    PLUS-
    shuttle-able
    longer trails
    more variety
    some really big stuff
    the Gorge is cool
    Hood River is nice to hang out in
    Great views of Mt Hood, Mt Adams

    MINUS-
    some stunts aren't well thought out
    some trails have no flow
    hotter and dustier
    newbies get lost easily, can't find trails
    motorcycles

    these are "my" opinions.
    I'd say try to hit one spot saturday, the other sunday.

    Let's do Post for sure. I have some unfinished business with a couple hits out there.

    Edit: We can keep Fall City on the back burner. I'm always down for a camping trip. I think there was an article on Fall City in a recent Decline mag. Or was that Bend?
