Wow, what a fun section on trail, possibly my favorite in the area. Dirt could not have been better.

This is a glorious trail. Well worth the climb. Classic back country tech and some rowdy flow. Well worth getting your diet in check if your the type of person who leaves negative reviews on trails you haven't ridden because climbing is hard .

Trail Invictus
There are more awkward moves on Invictus than Predator and the trail is more technically challenging but it’s shorter, slower, and less physical.
Rode it in the rain this weekend and really enjoyed it. Classic BC-style tech - less smashy and more panache-y. Great work Evergreen.

1st section, rooty AF
mid section, flowy AF
3rd section, bermy AF

Overall a great ride. If it's your first time I would take your time on the first rooty section. The middle section is hella fun with flowy jumps and turns and the last section has more berms and switchbacks.

Agree with jesperjo - it’s not green at this point. especially at the end of a ride. Chunky and bumpy is the wrong ways.

Can’t really rate this green any more. If you want to ride green trails you may want to stick to Duthie. The braking bumps have turned into massive pot holes in every berm and it’s pretty rough now.

Lower Poppin’ tops is in rough shape. You could almost hide a Volkswagen in some of the braking bumps at this point. Too many people need to learn to use their front brakes properly.

Re the comments about two way being dangerous, IMO that’s valid, but only for RR1.

I came across 3 groups of riders going up, one on a faster corner and they were mindful of the possibility of people going up and there was no issue. IDD you’re Worried about it, take the fire road for just that segment. Otherwise it’s a nice trail both ways, would be a shame to ride up the fire road and miss it.

Fun but needs some
Maintenance- lots of brake potholes and the berms are pretty blown out.

This should be a one-way trail. It is not safe for uphill travel.

Please don't skid ???? It's a very steep trail, with steep rock drops on rowdy roots. So come prepared and ride hard ????

Perfect temps today with the slightest breeze. Dirt had perfect amount of moisture in it. Most of the berms are all washboard.

Biggest problem I have with this trail is that it's two-way. I was there on a busy day and almost got hit twice while climbing. It also took away from the fun while descending since I had to ride cautiously for fear of doing the same to other climbers. IMO the trail is not built very well for two-way use since lots of features allow for, or even promote, high speed descending. Other than that, it's a nice trail, and the view of Mt. Rainier is great. I actually bought a (Timber) bell after riding this trail, which I will use on two-way trails from now on. If I went back here I would at least ride the road up instead. Or maybe just run a few laps on Upward Mobility/Poppin' Tops/Flow State, which were lots of fun too.

10/10 trial. Hella fun, fast and flowy, but dont get too comfortable because there are some nice rooty sections to catch you off guard. The whole lollipop route is an absolute must.

Great trail, but very treacherous and rowdy when it’s wet. Very exposed roots and rock and some exposure. It’s a peddle fest to the trailhead, so bring your cookies, it’s an all day experience.

A great varied descent, some good technical sections and some fun flow, but can’t say I’d recommend the final section after rain. The last section is steep switchbacks, and if this gets much use in the mud it’ll get run down pretty fast. Ride with care and enjoy.

Lots of ruts on this trail be careful. I hit a jump and landed in one and went over the handle bars it was so deep.

One of the best beginner flow trails on the I-90 corridor. Great trail to pump downhill and get your speed fix. There is a fair amount of optional features to keep more advanced riders happy.

Definitely one of the best trails in the area. Wonderfull descend to the backside of the ridge after the long climb up. Starts with a up down through a logged area, followed by a technical DH though the forest and leading into a back up local small version of "A line" until the trails lead into nice steep DH again. climb back up with 45 switchbacks.

Smooth flow trail most of the way down. Bottom half is dusty and a bit more rocky. Bottom is also so overgrown you can't see more than 6 ft ahead, which is scary because people go up this trail as well.
