A truly great trail. Catch the start by taking a right at the trail junction off the E. Tiger Summit trail after it crosses the summit road. Like the other new trails on Tiger, OTG has a bit of everything. It's mostly flowy, but also has its share of tech and gnar (roots and some short rocks gardens). This is a long descent, broken up by a punchy uphill section about a 3rd of the way down. For a descent, it's pretty aerobic. The rock gardens can be very greasy when wet, and thus can be difficult to ride cleanly then - especially the off-camber one. The upper trails at Tiger are not good to ride during or right after a rainstorm, as it does too much damage to the trail. Give 'em a rest until they dry out for a few days. OTG exits right at the top of Fully Rigid.

 What a fantastic trail! Wish it went all the way to the bottom.

 This really is an amazing trail. I'd love to get down there again and ride the new Predator trail.

My only concern with the Tiger mountain riding area is the difficulty ratings seem to be a bit inflated. This trail feels squarely like an Intermediate, and nothing that I saw from POV videos makes Predator look like a double black. But maybe that's a good thing if it keeps unprepared people off the trails? shrug
