Trails:

This is a 2 to 3+ hour with about 10 miles ride depending on group fitness.  All trails are blue. We can ride longer depending on group preference.

About the Ride/ Grunt Rating:

Tiger Mountain if beautiful and worth the effort! The ride starts out on Master Link trail which connects up to the East Summit trail and then to Side Hustle to Iverson back to the cars.  Master Link is twisty single track and a grunt of an uphill for 1+ hours which requires fitness.  East Summit is a fast downhill single track with some large roots and rock areas to navigate over.  Side Hustle is mostly downhill fast flowing with opportunity for getting air on the perfectly built jumps or roll them.  Iverson is single track with some large roots and rocks and tends to be a grunt back to the upper parking lot.  Bring snacks!

Directions:

Meet by the bathrooms/upper parking lot located at Tiger Summit Trailhead (east Tiger Mountain State Forest). This trailhead is off of HWY 18 in Issaquah WA: Google Maps

Discover Pass required.
