MTB at the Hood? trail beta needed
Anyone bringing their bike to the Hood? I am since I am departing right from there to Durango for more riding. Unfortunately I am super busy and don't have the time to really research trails. Talked with GT about possibly doing a DH shuttle. Read about it before somewhere. If anyone knows some info about DH runs/shuttle runs near the Hood, please share. Also let me know if you are bringing your bike. I might just leave it in Portland for the weekend if no one else is riding.

There is a pretty sweet trail across the highway from the hood entrance (or near there) called Gunsight Gumjuwac or something like that. Drops down to the highway a few miles down.
I rode it maybe 12 years ago, or half of it anyway because i folded my front wheel on a switchback and had to walk out."They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Me and divegirl will be sporting our bikes. Only rode a little last year but some good trails left right from the campground. And if you have seen this months Bike mag, there sum real pruty lookin single track pics from the area in there."Great barbecue makes you want to slap your granny up the side of her head." - Southern Saying

Interloper showed that Skibowl has lift served DH. Just an idea.

I'm in for cross-country single track or downhill for either a 1/2 day or full day.

From their website (skibowl):
SKIBOWL STILL CREEK DESCENT
15 miles for ALL abilities. 3-4 hours.
Take the Sky Chair to the historic Warming Hut. An easy down hill ride with dramatic views of Mt. Hood winds through the Action Park and around Multorpor Mountain to the peaceful Still Creek Valley. Coast down twelve miles of gravel road through giant evergreens, wildflowers, streams and wildlife.
Glad to see others are bringing bikes as well. We'll have to plan an afternoon, post ski, pre-drinking (pop of course) ride.
I got this over at MTBR so far:
I've never done it but know many who have riddden it. Someone can correct me but as far as I know the trail starts at Timberline lodge. You head down the Glade trail for a quite a while then go left on the Pioneer Bridal trail before reaching the Summit ski area (across the street, 26, from Ski Bowl) The PB trail leads to the Cross town trail ( I think this is where you cross 26). That trail takes you the rest of the way down to Rododendren (sp?)More fucked up than a cricket in a hubcap

you guys shoud find out more beta about that gunsight/gumjuwac trail, its a ton of fun and a good car shuttle ride. starts off on a forest service road about a mile past the entrance to mount hood meadows called Bennet Pass road at about 4800'. If you wanted to you could drive the road part of the ride up to Gumjuwac saddle at about 5400'. The trail then turns to switch back single track and drops about 1500' to a campground on the highway. From the campground, you can ride, shuttle, or (as in my case) hitchike with a broken bike.
This is from trying to remember and looking at topozone, the two sites that describe the trail want you to pay for the info."They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
