Meet 9:00 AM at the Tradition Plateau Trailhead parking lot.  From Interstate 90, take Exit 20 for High Point, and turn right (south) on 270th Ave SE.  Just a few yards south of I-90, turn right (west) onto SE 79th St.  The pavement ends in 0.4 miles, where you continue through a gate about 0.5 miles to the parking lot.

This hike is part of the Winter Conditioning Hike Series hosted by the Foothills branch.  It is open to all Mountaineer members.   

We will start at the Tradition Plateau Trailhead and hike up to West Tiger 3 via the Tiger Mtn. Trail and then the Cable Line Trail.   At the summit of West Tiger 3, we will continue on to West Tiger 2 and West Tiger 1, with consideration to weather and group preference.   

We will hike rain or shine, so good rain gear, non-cotton layers, warm hat/gloves, and sturdy waterproof footwear are required.  Additionally, with winter conditions, there may be snow and ice, so MICROSPIKES and TREKKING POLES are also REQUIRED.
