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

      Wet and muddy in spots, tacky and just right in others. Probably 2-3 days away from being perfect.

      Hey folks, lost a Subaru car key at tiger mountain today. It is a button key with a small blue/green key fob.

      My route was Master Link --> Quick Link --> NOTG --> Crossover Rd --> Bail Out --> Preston RR --> Extra Terrestrial --> back to Crossover Rd --> Predator.

      If you're on these trails in the next few days/weeks and see it, shoot me a text at 802-299-9433 and I'll buy you a beer or six. Cheers fellas!!

      This trail is a notch under predator its amazing its strikingly fast for bigger chuncky trail. With alot of flow vibes and some of the best tech in tiger big drop is rollable but no need huge landing so you can break check it and let it go

      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!

      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.

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

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

      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.
