Tiger Mountain Lowlands


Day Hike - Tradition Plateau

Easy + Friday afternoon ~4.5 mile loop hike with ~800 feet of elevation gain. We'll start our hike from the Highpoint Trailhead Parking Lot on the wide and flat "Around the Lake Trail", connect to the "Bus Trail", and the "Section Line Trail", we'll then turn off onto the "Talus Rocks Trail" and begin our climb on this much narrower trail that winds through the forest passing a few small water features, before topping out at our high point for the trail and heading back towards our cars via the "West Tiger Mountain 3 Trail". While this hike does not offer spectacular views, it is a peaceful hike through varied terrain and features lots of trees.
