Mountain Biking Hospital Hill

*****   Add a review
#20 of 1,206 mountain bike trails in Washington
#1,399 in the world

Network of mostly singletrack trails with 2500+ feet of elevation gain, from floor of the Gorge to top of the ridge. Options include steep, tight switchbacks, long climbs in your granniest of all gears, great downhill runs, fantastic view from the top of the Gorge and Mt Hood. Sections also include quite a bit of exposure. Often have to cross fences, keep an eye out for hikers and other bikers coming back. For advanced riders only. Complete quess on the trail length.

    A word of caution. Don't use or park on private roads Ramsay or Forbes. I parked there and my car got towed. Not a nice experience, trust me

    stick to the main trail going up as all the side trails are ridiculous to climb. Coming down, however, choose your fancy. They are all good! Enjoy, and remember this is a locals fav and respect the private property and close the gates!

    Note that most (if not all) of this trail is on private property. The landowners have been very generous in granting access. Please pay attention to posted notices (i.e., no dogs when the cows are out to pasture, no parking at corral). Keep the gates closed and no littering. We want to keep the trail available.

    Park along Spring Street at the north end of White Salmon and ride up the gravel road to the trailhead just past the cattle pens. Cross the little creek, climb a tough, rocky little switchback up to a gravel drive, cross the drive to pick up the singletrack on the other side, and ride a nice, tight, technical connector trail up to the gate. Go through the gate, turn left downhill, then a quick right after the bridge. Cross the next creek, then ride uphill for about 2 miles along the shady, aptly-named Evergreen Highway. Cross the logging road at the top, and explore! Spectacular views await. Smooth, very fast trip back downhill makes up for all the climbing. This is a trail of mixed difficulty - some parts are easy, and others are hard, but most of the harder parts can be avoided or walked. The harder options are generally the trails branching off the main route. A fun trail for intermediate through advanced riders, but a beginner with a can-do-it attitude will still have a good time. Not for folks who don't like (or aren't capable of) sustained climbing, even though the grade for the most part isn't that steep. A very good choice on a hot day.

    Start at the floor of The Gorge and grind your way up to the top. The view and the choices coming downhill make it all worth while! Great ride!
