NTT is the main access trail for the other lower Tiger Mountain trails, as well as the exit trail for many of the other trails. Because of proximity to the parking lot, it gets a lot of hikers and dog walkers, so be alert and friendly.

Despite a Blue rating, much of it is Green, with most of the Blue sections easily walked by newer riders. The Blue intermediate-level features include a few short techy rock sections and a short-but-steep switchbacking climb. There is one feature, which is a dark blue bordering on bluish black, and is considered the crux of the trail: a large off-camber rootball drop with a cliff on the South side of the trail as you ride over it. This is an intimidating feature for a rider expecting "intermediate" level features, but looks worse than it is. Pretty soon you will be riding it clean in the downhill (West back to the parking lot) direction. The line closest to the cliff edge is the easiest- just look forward and keep going, and it works out fine. If you can ride the rootball cleanly in the uphill direction (heading East to Joy Ride trail), consider yourself a strong tech rider, as this is something to brag about

      On the border of wet and muddy. Not as muddy as the upper trails. Easy to ride most of it.
