Tiger Mountain State Forest: Iverson Railroad Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The lower loop of this 4.3-mile figure eight is mainly on gravel roads; the main event is the upper loop- the gravel West Side Road climb and descent, and the Iverson Railroad Trail, a singletrack known to locals as Fat Hand. The ride is not for beginners- not because of the short, relatively tough initial climb but much more for the technical, sometimes steep singletrack. Even intermediates will be challenged on rocky, rooty sections of trail.
Don't let the low mileage of this ride fool you; the Iverson Railroad Trail ride is short in duration, but it's a fun, advanced-level outing on high quality trail. It can be combined with the Preston Railroad Trail- Northwest Timber Trail loop for a satisfying 15.3-mile day. Challenging, technical singletrack; can be combined with the Preston Railroad Trail- Northwest Timber Trail loop for a 15.3-mile total.
