About the Ride
Skill Level-->Intermediate, mostly Blues. We'll climb on Master link (green) to Inside Passage (blue with rollable drops of 1 ft) to Joy Ride (blue with rocks and roots) to NW timber (blue) to parking lot.
Pace-->Moderate. Frequent regroups (at least at every trail junction)
Crank Sisters are heading back to Tiger! We'll meet at the Trailhead sign in the Tiger Mountain Upper Parking Lot (remember your Discover Pass). The idea is to ride about 1.5-2-something hours; likely Inside Passage Loop or possibly to the top. There will be climbing. There will be descending. We'll make a plan at the trailhead, depending on how spunky everyone feels. Please text me with questions or concerns.
About Tiger From the Evergreen website:
- With many miles of mountain biking trails spanning a variety of skills levels and physical challenge - including a bona fide double-diamond DH trail and killer view of Mount Rainier from the summit - Tiger Mountain is one of Seattle's most popular mountain biking destinations.
- Master Link is a one-way climbing trail from the parking lot to roughly 3/4 of the way up the mountin. It's a climbing masterpiece-smooth and lots of friendly grade reversals to get you up top quickly and with gas in the tank.
Meet at the Trailhead sign in the Tiger Mountain Upper Parking Lot; Discover Pass required. If you don't have a Discover Pass, you can always park in the lower parking lot & ride up to the top lot (in this case, remember to give yourself an extra 10 minutes). We'll meet at 9:15 am, then hit the trails. Please be on time; we can't wait longer than 10 minutes for late riders to arrive.
