This old standard is getting neglected with all the new trails on Tiger. It's still a great trail though (in either direction). Significant work has been done in recent years to redirect the formerly massive "Preston River" water flow off the trail, and thus it can now be open year round. There are springs everywhere on this trail though, so give it a rest during rain, and expect some wet immediately after a rain. It's still fun to bomb down this trail, and it's a better descent for newer riders than Off The Grid.

The recent rain washed this trail out some, it's a fun ride, just more challenging and not as polished as it was this summer.

reporter Some muddy spots, which was surprising since it was 90 degF today.

One tree still down near the top. Other than that, trail is in great shape with a few slightly muddy spots.
