The New East Summit Trail at Tiger Mountain

I woke up at 4:30 to get off work early enough to beat night fall. I went up to enjoy the new trail after the first rain in months. I set my PR going up of 47:57. It was super greasy so I wrecked without my knee pads...never again. Sick trail though. Big thanks to EMBC for such a great trail.

 Comment at 7:09 was my exact thought. Razz

Seems like every time I ride without my knee or elbow pads, i go down.

thanks for sharing the video though. I can't wait to ride that trail next year.

edit: and nice BR. Smile

 Thanks! I absolutely love my BR.

And the East Summit Trail is sooo fun, especially when dry (I got my helmet cam just in time to film the trail before it closed so it was a bit wet and slick). It is a good workout to get to the top, but I have really started to enjoy it. It makes the trail more rewarding knowing you just cranked up that whole hill.

 Any idea how long this trail is? Did you guys have a grant to build it?

 The East Summit trail shown in this video is about 1.5 miles. The trail after it, Preston Railroad Trail, is about 4 miles.

More info can be had here: trails.evergreenmtb.org/wiki/Trail:Tiger_Mountain

That trail wiki was created by the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, which is the largest mountain bike advocacy group is Washington State. Check out their website - they doing tons of great things for biking in the area.
