This hike is part of the Winter Conditioning Hike Series hosted by the Foothills branch. It is not part of a course or program. Like any other open hike, it is open to all Mountaineers members.

We will hike up the Nook Trail and Section Line Trail to West Tiger 3. The Section Line Trail is very steep, gaining 1400 feet in 1 mile!  We will then hike back down the main WT3 Trail for a 5 mile/2000' gain loop. OR, we can continue up to WT2 and hike down the K3 Trail and TMT, or the West Tiger RR Grade back to the WT3 Trail. That adds an extra mile and 300 feet of gain.
