The main way to access the upper mountain trails now. This is an uphill-only trail, and is a great option to avoid grinding up the East Summit road. Be alert for hikers on this multi-use trail. Finally climbing singletrack at Tiger, you have time to look around and notice how pretty the forest is there!

Dry, firm and fast! A few ruts here and there, but in great shape overall.

 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.
