Swoopy and fast downhill. Mostly smooth with several roots and rock gardens. Great views of Mt. Rainier and southern Puget Sound from the summit. While most people now only ride the top half and then cut in to ride Off The Grid, the lower half is even better, and worth riding occasionally - either to access Preston Railroad Grade trail, or as a loop, taking the Preston access Road back up to the East Summit.

       Very fun, fast, and flowy, and is always a fun start to descending on Tiger. The trail runs great when dry.
