Discovery Pass required to park in upper lot.

Great All Mountain bang-for-the-buck route. Over 3,500 feet vert of climbing, great summit views, followed by maximal fun, flowy, gnarly descending!

Park at upper lot if you have a Discovery Pass. Else park at lower lot and ride up the East Summit Road to start of NorthWest Timber trail. Follow NWT to Master Link. Climb up Master Link, Quick Link, Crossover Road, and the ETS Road to the summit, take in the great Mt. Rainier view on a clear day from the summit.

Now for some fun. Enjoy all of East Tiger Summit trail (the lower half is commonly skipped now due to OTG's popularity), go Left at the Preston access road and climb this road back up, past the T road junction towards the East Summit. Skip the final killer grunt to the top, and instead cut in to the Right for the short East Tiger Summit trail segment to access the start of Off The Grid, ride best part of OTG til taking the Drop In trail up to start of Predator. Bomb down Predator (Tiger's best trail) back to your car.

Still running great, probably handling the winter better than any other trail at tiger.

Most of the trail is in great shape, some corners are developing some deep braking bumps, a trail crew just cleared the up route (master link). Roots are VERY slick, corners are tacky.
