About the Ride/ Grunt Rating:
Tiger Mountain trails are beautiful and worth the effort! The ride starts out on Master Link trail which connects to East Summit to OTG to fireroad to Inside Passage to Atlas and then NW Timber to the cars. Master Link is a long uphill twisty single track that requires fitness to climb. OTG is techy single black diamond downhill. We ride about 1 miles of fire road from the bottom of OTG to Inside Passage. Inside Passage is mostly downhill with some large roots to navigate over. About halfway down Inside Passage on the right is Atlas. Atlas is technical spicy blue single track with natural rooty dirt and rocky features with steep corners with high berms. At the bottom of Atlas there is a very short ride on green trail NW Timber to the cars. Bring snacks!
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
