Day Hike - West Tiger Mountain 1-2-3


Day Hike - West Tiger Mountain 1-2-3

Ditch the Black Friday lines and burn off extra Thanksgiving calories by doing a loop of all three West Tiger summits!

  • Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,000 ft

Meet at the parking area near the Tiger Mountain Cable Line trailhead at 9 AM. This is just before the gate which leads up to the main Tiger Mountain parking lot, and does not require any pass to park.

We'll start with a little warm up by taking a short trail from our parking area to the main parking lot. We'll then proceed to the Hiker's Hut at the summit of Tiger Mountain #1 and break for lunch. If the weather cooperates, we'll have a nice view of Mount Rainier. From there, we'll head down to Tiger Mountain #2 and then to the more familiar Tiger #3 and head back down to the trailhead.

Expect a moderate 2-2.5 mph pace. Trekking poles recommended.
