Trail built for a different riding experience on Tiger. This is not a flow trail. Be ready to work for it. Organic left in places and as holes develop they will be tuned but be prepared to have both you and your suspension work for it. The jumps in the middle will take some work.The trail will continue to evolve over the fall as it gets ridden in and we fix problem areas that develop so don't expect it to be the same from one week to the next.

If you like it, please look for work parties and come out and help us make it what you want to ride when you visit

       Probably the funnest sanctioned trail (outside a park) I have ever ridden. A refreshingly natural and loose antidote to the flow trail epidemic. Goldilocks steepness that helps you keep speed but doesn’t take it too far like many fall-line trails. Most will find it much more difficult than OTG, especially if you aren’t used to this style of riding.

       Heck yeah. A true gem added to rapidly growing options that are in the tiger/raging river area.

       A fun trail that you can definitely find some flow, if you know it well.

       Lost my goggles on OTG, NOTG, or climbing the road from bottom of NOTG upwards. 100% goggles, black strap, black frame, clear lenses. If found please call 253-993-9020, would be greatly appreciated. Lost them on 4/22/21.

       Irresponsible trail “building” defined. I thought when Tiger opened year-round it was in large part with “sustainable” trail building promised. What aspects of this trail deal in any way with erosion control? Unfortunately the only trail that endures the high traffic Tiger experiences is Master Link, a DNR-built trail. Meanwhile Evergreen spends our contributions building black Ds brah, that obviously 75% of traffic doesn’t have the skill to ride clean/non-destructively. Shred it and forget it! Just build more trails somewhere else! Isn’t that about what led to Seattle area having 0 new (legal) trail miles for 20 years? “Joy Ride” and Fully Rigid show how well this era of trails holds up. So disappointing. Seattle should be a year-round MTB destination.

       Love this trail. Evergreen has been doing an amazing job. Not your cup of tea? Time to volunteer, boots on the ground, help build trails that you want to ride. NOTG is the kind of trail people drive far and wide to ride. Myself included.

       Brilliant trail! I love how much of the natural terrain was maintained by creating jumpable features over drainages and not tearing out all the roots/ stumps. This is the type of trail I travel to the PNW to ride!
