West Tiger Mountain No. 3


Day Hike - West Tiger Mountain No. 3

Let’s celebrate President’s Day with a conditioner hike to West Tiger 3 via Tiger 2! Hike will be approx. 9 miles with 2300 feet of elevation gain. Moderate pace but please be comfortable hiking in snow. (Microspikes required).

  • Moderate/Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.75 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,350 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 2,759 ft
  • Pace: 2.0 mph

Meeting time 9:00am at the gate near the corner of S.E. 79th St / 270th Ave S.E.

Tiger 3 will be our destination and we will tag Tiger 2 on the way.

Trip will be approximately 9 miles with 2300 feet of elevation gain. Moderate pace (2.0 mph). We will make a loop - ascending via the Lingering Trail and descending using the W Tiger 3 and K-3 trails.

I expect to hit snow on the trail so microspikes are required. If there is a significant amount of snow, we will modify the route to stay in lower terrain.

We will be parking on the access road that parallels I-90 so no parking pass is required.
