Riparian Protection from Recreational Use
The list of recreational activities for which Hood River is known is ever-growing. So, it’s no wonder that Hood River County’s natural resources are starting to feel the impacts of recreational use. One area receiving particularly intense recreational use is Post Canyon. This area is heavily used by mountain bikers, ORVs, ATVs, motorcycles, equestrians and hikers and is bisected by waterways. That’s why the District has been working closely with the Hood River County Forestry Recreational Trails Committee to implement projects like the one pictured here. This project was designed to protect and restore Post Canyon Creek from the impacts of motorized vehicles driving in and through this fish-bearing stream.
