http://www.hoodlivin.com/biking/post-canyon/

I rode this area with my family a couple years back, they have three levels of downhill from mild to wild, also a pump track and a balance beam perimeter ride, then there's some more standard XC fare.
Post Canyon is my regular trail, I ride there 2-3 times a month (just about most of the time). It's great, man made skinnies, DH, XC, technical stuff, no so technical but scary on a uni, etc

Another good trail in the area is Syncline. Then there is the sandy ridge system, some great DH and germs that actually work well for muni if you maintain speed.

We have a lot here, it's kind of hard to justify heading up to the north shore, even though it's not a bad drive from Portland.
