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

       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.
