Tiger Mountain: Preston Railroad, Northwest Timber, Iverson Railroad, Poo Poo Point, & The Crossover Road Trails Professional Review and Guide

"Located in the middle of 1,300 acres of state forest, Tiger Mountain is one of the most popular mountain bike areas in the Puget Sound region. Only forty minutes from downtown, Tiger is home to more than 30 miles of off-road adventure on five different trails, three of which will challenge nearly every rider who isn’t a professional mountain bike racer. Right from the start, each ride throws down the gauntlet and says, “I am going to beat you into submission.”

All of them—Preston Railroad Trail, Iverson Railroad Trail, and Northwest Timber Trail—contain steep climbs, technical descents littered with small boulders, constant twisting masses of slippery roots, deep ruts, mud, nasty switchbacks, more mud, and deceptively deep puddles that require strength, stamina, and superior skills to survive without broken bike parts, gashes, gouges, and aching muscles."

I love this ride! The first 3 miles are a bit grueling, especially for an early season ride, with somewhere around 800' of elevation gain on gravel logging roads. But the payoff is sweet. 8 miles of singletrack with plenty of obstacles to keep your attention. It was as little wet and slippery, but not bad for April in the NW. My favorite part is the Northwest Timber trail near the bottom. It's up & down so you have to work harder than the Preston RR trail and it's way more technical. I can't wait to get back - hopefully this week!
