For mountain biking close to Seattle, it’s hard to beat Preston Railroad Trail on Tiger Mountain just east of Issaquah. There’s a nice 1,500-foot fire road climb to warm up with (you can also climb the trail on an out and back) and then the downhill fun begins. Anyone and any bike can handle Preston, but we prefer our long-travel Pivot Firebird to really rail Preston’s nastiness.
We happened to be running the GoPro Hero HD helmet cam when another rider came to a 3-foot ledge drop midway down. Whoa! Classic endo! You can find it at the 1:12 mark. Enjoy!
