A downhill trail brimming with aggressive flow.

Description

Off the Grid is a fast paced aggressive flow trail that both requires and rewards decisive bike handling. The trail starts by peeling off the Summit Trail shortly after the road crossing (look for the rock armored entrance to your right).

The first half mile is characterized by a swooping side slope descent punctuated by the occasional rowdy rock garden. This fast warm up section ends at the third bridge before a modest climb that continues up and down in short punches as it traverses across the next knoll.

Next, a narrowing trail and a crowded stand of trees usher in Off the Grid's main act, a section dominated by abrupt dropping turns. Half lunge and half drop, these rooty turns demand attention and careful handling as you fly through them.

Thankfully these delicious swoops and sudden drops continue along the remainder of the trail. Although they become infrequent and less abrupt towards the end. Off the Grid ends on Tiger Mountain Road 5500, across from the entrance of Fully Rigid. Follow the road back to Quick Link, tackle Fully Rigid, or take a break at the picnic tables before making your next move.

Probably the highlight of Tiger Mountain. This trail is excellently built and maintained and is some seriously fun, flowy riding. There are some small rock and root drops, but nothing an intermeddiate rider wouldn't be able to handle. Jul 11, 2015
