Built in partnership with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, Megafauna trail extends from the bottom of The Legend trail descent with a new expert-only downhill riding experience. Like Legend but as steep as Upper Predator. The double black rating is no joke.

A big thank you to the dedicated volunteers who joined Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance this spring to share their time and talents for building these trails. Along with your efforts, the Easy, Tiger extension and Megafauna trails were made possible through a Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program state lands development grant, awarded to DNR by the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.

Please become a member of Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance & support Washington State DNR as they improve and expand mountain bike trails here in Washington State

Ride down the Legend, cross the road and look for the trail sign.

      Pretty good dirt despite the rain, dryer than the rest of Tiger today.

       Really fun, and everything is roll-able (although barely). Not the hardest double black, but pretty challenging.

       Finally rode this after riding everything else at tiger. Legend + Megafuana is seriously a terrific descent. Megafuana definitely steps up the difficulty of this route but it’s not scary technical. It has a nice mix of chose the line carefully, and open it up speed. It would no doubt get more love if it wasn’t seemingly so far away. The climb back up east tiger is very well made and super smooth… but then you have NWT waiting for you which always sucks at that point in the ride (no offense to those NWT fans). Is it worth it? Yes. Will I hit this every time on my way back? Definitely not.
