  • Moderate
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,500 ft
  • Pace: 2 mph

Heading east on  I-90, take Exit 20.  At the bottom of the off ramp, take a right, and shortly thereafter another right.  Park there on the street (SE 79th St.) across from where  Tent City 4  used to be.   Meeting time:  9:00 a.m.

I will be scouting this route with Kim Frasher, Co-leader, on the Monday prior to this hike.  Should we run into conditions unsuitable for this hike, the destination will be changed to another Tiger Mtn. hike.   An email  will be sent two days prior to this hike with more details.

This should be a good conditioning hike!   You should have a recent history of doing hikes with similar gain/distance,  and on a steep grade at a steady moderate pace.
