Eastbound and Down, or EBAD, is the very latest trail in the Tiger Mountain Trail complex. EBAD is a 1 way downhill trail with advanced terrain. There are some unavoidable obstacles and some with optional ride arounds. Give the trail a look before you descend and ride at your own risk.

The trail is narrow and steep owing to using the bike tire predominantly to cut the trail. Several off-camber and loam sections are present making it very different from other trails on the mountain. There's very little over engineering present and it feels like that secret pirate trail you always wish you could find. The double black option on the trail provides a steep root and rock filled chute down to the base of a rock out cropping with the feel of hanging in space. Some of the turns are quite tight and can be ridden with speed provided the correct line is chosen; usually the high line.

If Legend and OTG are old hat for you and you're looking for something more challenging then this trail is up your alley. Gradient is similar to that of Predator.

This New Trail brought to you by the hard work of the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and trail builder Nick Newhall!

      The trail is in great shape. Drainage issues were worked on the upper half of the trail; down to the cut log drop. Some new dirt was added in...

      Today it ranged from super tacky to soft but not-too-deep mud—with a few small puddles being the exception. Shame it’s supposed to rain...

       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.
