NOTG is currently NOT open. EMBA trail buillders at work fixing the muck, STAY OFF THE TRAIL ETA the first week of July

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.
