One of my favorites at tiger, fun techy flow all the way down!!! One of the off-camber corners near the end is pretty dusty and chewed up right now. Went down it today and am gonna avoid till some rain comes in. YMMV

First, about this trail: I'm an intermediate rider (OTG, CE, and Super-T are totally fine for me, NOTG and EBAD are "hard" but doable), and this one is super hard for me, but other than the waterfall and the roll down to the service road, it's all "rowdy, but awesome" - everything rollable (with care).

If you can do EBAD and NOTG, you can do this, if you're careful - just scope things out before you dive in, and skip around any section that seems just too nuts. Hopefully at some point soon, I'll have the skills / dexterity to traverse the waterfall without crashing, and I'll have nuts to try the roll/drop down to the road.

About the trail *description* above: not sure why we need to compare this to Bellingham or Squamish: it's clearly harder than any single black diamond on Tiger or Raging River (although perhaps upper PT has a section two which is comparable), so even if it's "a black diamond with 2 double black features, at 1.6 miles of that, calling it a double black makes total sense. Also: why say whether "most people wear a half lid"? Some people (like me) *only* wear a full face, whenever riding downhill trails. No need to make people feel like they're "badder-ass" if they ride this on a hard-tail with a half-lid.

(I do stand by my earlier review/comment that splitting out Lower Predator into it's own trail that's single black would make sense. Only the roll-in is hard (but still easier than either the waterfall or the roll-down onto the road), but nothing else on that last lower section warrants more caution than e.g. EBAD or NOTG)

Best trail at tiger for sure -- chunky, flowy, and you can just haul down everything on this trail. Get it!

Only approach from the road if you like suffering and hate fun. Trail climbs are always the better choice

Call me crazy, but I really love Quick Link. After a master link, many go left up the fire road, which is more direct, but QL is fun, short, and a nice little reward for finishing ML. Great trail. Includes a bit more uphill tech and features than ML.

Super fun. I’m bit of a beginner and found this run to be quite exciting. There are a couple minor technical features that kept things interesting for me, probably more advanced riders would find them boring but it is a flow trail & you can go really fast if you wanted. This trail is very well maintained and the dirt is perfect. Oh & the view up top is outstanding

Trail Megafauna
Finally rode this after riding everything else at tiger. Legend + Megafuana is seriously a terrific descent. Megafuana definitely steps up the difficulty of this route but it’s not scary technical. It has a nice mix of chose the line carefully, and open it up speed. It would no doubt get more love if it wasn’t seemingly so far away. The climb back up east tiger is very well made and super smooth… but then you have NWT waiting for you which always sucks at that point in the ride (no offense to those NWT fans). Is it worth it? Yes. Will I hit this every time on my way back? Definitely not.

Hey folks, lost a Subaru car key at tiger mountain today. It is a button key with a small blue/green key fob.

My route was Master Link --> Quick Link --> NOTG --> Crossover Rd --> Bail Out --> Preston RR --> Extra Terrestrial --> back to Crossover Rd --> Predator.

If you're on these trails in the next few days/weeks and see it, shoot me a text at 802-299-9433 and I'll buy you a beer or six. Cheers fellas!!

Review of Lower Predator only (for now) - awesome trail, tamer than EBAD, IMO. The entrance roll down from the road looks scary, but is straight, wide, and has good sight lines, and while I often get tripped up _somewhere_ on EBAD, by my third loop of lower Predator I was riding the whole thing cleanly (and I never messed up the entrance). Seems like maybe calling the lower part a different trail and dropping it to single black might be “area appropriate” (I have no problem with upper keeping its double status due to that lovely waterfall feature alone tho ;p ). The hardest features of EBAD, NOTG, and Legend are all comparable with the hardest part of lower Predator.

What a great trail! Rode it in the rain and it was still tons of fun though obviously you need to be real careful with those brakes. Everything is rollable though that weird sideways cut log feature is a lot easier if you carry some speed. Plenty of "too steep to stop" spots but there's good sight-lines so you can tell what you're getting into. EBAD is a great intro to advanced tech trails.

Legit rating on a great trail that rewards repetition. Disclaimer: If you're not comfortable riding every other tech trail in the area at speed you may want to hold off. Rode it blind when it was wet and it was a handful but still a lot of fun. Looking forward to becoming better acquainted as it's definitely a trail that rewards exacting line choices and careful application of front brakes. Many non-intiuitive inside or middle lines are the better options so if you get the chance to ride with someone that know's the trail that's pretty ideal.

So much fun. I am *way* underqualified to handle this (mostly a "blue square" kinda guy at this point in my learning curve), and had to work the breaks pretty often to keep from blasting past my controllable speed (read: it's often pretty steep!), but even so, there was only really one descent I couldn't roll through (rooty dirt slide wall, about 4-6' long/high).

Totally worth it. Amazingly fun trail.

Did this trail for the first time last week and it is a proper double black now after years of abuse. One section in the middle alone gives this trail the red rating its unridable if you hit this trail you see what I am talking about every video I've seen people crashed there. But it was legit one of the glfunest trails I've ever done.

A trail that rewards repetition, you can ride this once (like I did), but it left me wanting to ride it at least a couple of times more. Lots of rock gardens and jumps, sometimes multiple lines. It was fun, but would be absolutely sick if I had time to learn it and ride the right lines and hit the features properly.
Can be ridden on a short travel bike, slowly, enduro bike quick, or if you really want to get SENDY, a DH bike would rule this.
As above, trail rating single black in BC - I live and ride in Whistler area.

Probably the funnest sanctioned trail (outside a park) I have ever ridden. A refreshingly natural and loose antidote to the flow trail epidemic. Goldilocks steepness that helps you keep speed but doesn’t take it too far like many fall-line trails. Most will find it much more difficult than OTG, especially if you aren’t used to this style of riding.

Super fun trail, totally worth the climb, but I recommend climbing up the green trail and not the access road.

Amazing new trail, you’ll be giggling the whole way down. Definitely sits against the grain of most contemporary trail building and its oh so refreshing.

Avoid descending this trail until they build more trails in that area. You come out on the access road which is an awful way to connect back to the parking lot. If you do choose to go down it, just turn around and go back up instead of using the road to exit.

An awesome, fun, flowing, intermediate trail. My partner and I had an incredibly fun ride on this in November and on a clear day, the view is AMAZING.

Great new trail from EvergreenMTB! A flowy intermediate trail with plenty of optional hits along the trail to keep it fun and playful for more advanced riders.

Trail Master Link
Ride up the end of the "Northwest Timber Trail" where it ends at the road for roughly 5 minutes, hang a left at the fork (there is a sign), Master Link starts there. If you go right at this point, you will not be riding a climbing trail.

A pleasant XC ride that is a main link to the rest of the East Tiger trail system. If doing a shorter loop, then NTT will be your entrance and your exit. If doing a longer day by riding up the fire road to the East Summit, then NTT is your exit trail back to the parking lot.

Overall, NTT is rated Green, but it still has a few sections that will challenge novice riders. I've yet to see anyone successfully ride the big root ball in the uphill (East) direction. And same root ball in the downhill (West) direction back to parking lot is definitely a Blue trail feature. Roll it or drop it, and don't look down to your left! Also, the rock garden near the West end of the trail is more challenging riding uphill (heading West).

I haven't seen anyone clear that root ball on the trail. If anyone has a video of them doing it I'd love to see. IMO it is a expert feature, definitely not blue.

Overall experience, didn't like NW Timber very much. Almost no descent/downhill sections. A lot of climbing, including very steep sections that pop of nowhere (eg. right after a rocky/rooty patch).
