    Tiger Mountain loop mileage?

    Do any of you happen know the actual mileage (and elevation) for the Tiger Mountain loop?
    -road climb - Summit Trail - PRT - road climb - Fully Rigid - Joy Ride - Timberline

    What about the mileage for:
    Timberline - Joy Ride road climb - Silent Swamp - road - Fully Rigid - Joy Ride - Timberline

    ...and what if you add PRT and Summit Trail to the latter?

    Thanks!

    In a few weeks the tiger loop will work out to something like 18-19 miles and 3500 feet of climbing. That's omitting Iverson.

    Hmmm. Up to the summit, down East Tiger Summit to Preston, road back to summit (or East Summit crossing), down to Off the Grid, down Off the Grid to Fully Rigid, out Silent Swamp, back up to Fully Rigid on the Connector Road, down Fully Rigid/Joyride and out NW Timber?

    I'm ok with skipping going down Preston RR, but maybe going up it instead is worthwhile.

    Oh you'll need PRT but only to PBR. Besides it'll be more fun.

    Iverson is highly underrated, especially the switchback part. I agree with nickn need to do PRT.

    Very close to being done, Slim. Your rock is still in its humble angle of repose and I've made use of it once or twice while building up there.

    Thanks for the information my friend. You have made my day. I really liked sitting there looking at the view through the trees. Slim

    Indeed. Best trail out there, by far.

    Need to man up and add Iverson the next time.

    Continuing up Crossover to ETS doubles the fun (not the distance).

    Where is Off The Grid going to run? I haven't seen that on any of the maps yet. Slim

    Slim, can't put it on the maps until it's officially open later this summer. But it will peel off of ETS after the road crossing and head all the way down to the top of Fully Rigid. An alternative to Preston.

    2014 is going to be a very good year on Tiger for trails. We might even make Borneo happy. Somehow.

    T minus three weeks

    also did anyone read the press release this spring that said Tiger will be over 25 miles of trails when the system is fully done in a few years? This does not include any road connections. It will take a big ride up there to do them all when the planned trails up there are done. I'm guessing 40 miles and 9000K+ vert of very dynamic riding!
    Epic trails get built in the Northwest by epic people!

    Sustainable quality trails please.

    Looking at the topo map it looks like it could have some real nice down hill flow. Although I rode Preston this morning before work, thanks NickN, and it would be a shame to let all that nice work done to Preston go to waste. Sweet Job there guys who ever did it. It will be interesting to see how it stands the wet season. Slim

    Oh, I'm pretty sure the new work will hold up just fine in the wet. Glad you liked the option.

    I'm such a slacker. I really need to get out there. I'm almost ashamed of myself for not having ridden it, and swore that this would be the year (summer is slipping by oh so quickly).

    Climb Preston, descend the new thing.

    I'd much rather climb Preston than Crossover. I've done both. Crossover is pretty heinous.

    I hadn't done crossover in a few years, and it really wasn't as bad as I remembered. With ETS trail it makes a great loop since there's no elevation loss on the road to get back to Preston (it used to be up crossover, down road to preston trail). Here's a fun 3h loop I like when I'm in the mood for a bigger Tiger ride.
