    Anyone know of off road rides along the Gorge? I'de like to ride a few days and a couple of hundred miles and camp out along the Goege. Not interested in road touring, I would like to stick to off road as much as possible. GPS tracks would be ideal or maps would work also, I'm proficient in both. I can also break unicorns, just incase anyones interested. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    There's a gravel road route from Battle Ground to near Trout Lake. It parallels the Columbia River but is at least one ridge back from the river. No tracks - just USFS maps.

    The Sound Rider "Rally in the Gorge" is coming up this weekend in Hood River. Camping for a few days and riding as much as you want each day pretty much sums up the rally.

    Addtionally, I don't know of many off-road routes in the Gorge itself. A dirt road here and there, but being it's a scenic cooridor, bordered by interstates/highways, relavtively populated and surrounded by deep mountains there's not much I've ridden there that could be called off-road. Like said above, get out of the Gorge into the the next drainage and there are a lot more options.
