It's officially Winter and this is a hike for those looking for a hike with a lower probability of snow. The entire hike is below 1400 ft which means encountering snow is less likely. Even so, bring some traction devices (e.g. Kahtoolas, Yaktrax, etc.) just in case.

The route we'll be taking is composed of an assortment of trails so this will provide a couple opportunities to use a GPS or other navigation tools while staying on the trail (to be very clear, we will not be going off trail). The Tiger Mountain lowlands are relatively level though we will have a section that consists of a lot of elevation gain/loss. Overall, this should make for a good off-season hike.
