A new extension in 2016, "Easy, Tiger" is a two-way trail that provides access to The Legend
. From it's rock lined start off of the Northwest Timber Trail
, the comfortably wide and constantly smooth singletrack drops away to follow a little rolling terrain. It quickly reaches the start of The Legend
before wrapping around through a beautiful open forest covered in ferns.
After that, the speed picks up as the casual descent follows low berms and mellow rollers. The trail builders gave Easy, Tiger enough grade to make for an enjoyable ride on the way in, just keep in mind this will translate to some climbing effort in the way out. Near the end, the bottom of Megafauna
feeds onto the trail. The trail doesn't extend much below this point, but if you head all the way to the bottom, a series of gravelly berms bring riders under the power lines with a view of the highway.
On the way up, the smooth corridor plays equally as nice for climbing. But you'll still be pedaling plenty to reach the top. Fortunately, this part of Tiger Mountain seems cooler and is quite picturesque.
