Got the day off on President's Day? Then join me on this loop hike. We will hike up the steep Nook and Section Line Trails (SLT is 1400 feet gain in 0.9 miles) to West Tiger 3, then hike up to West Tiger 2, and hike down the K3 Trail and TMT. If the weather is nice to allow good views, we can also go visit West Tiger 1 for views of Mt. Rainier, Seattle, and the Olympics.
