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.

      Downed tree that you need to climb over less than a quarter mile from top of the summit.

      A bit wet and muddy in a few places but a blast nonetheless.

      Connect this with side hustle for a dream flowy ride almost back to the lot. And the Iverson cut over is way less a PIA than coming back from ET.

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