Show Tiger Mountain some love in 2021 and hit the hills early with me. Bring your adventurous spirt and your navigation abilities to join in the fun while we learn a new route together. This trip is aimed at participants looking to enjoy nature but also continue their conditioning through the winter. It features a milder elevation gain than some of the other alternatives in the area.

Expected route: Bus Trail to Poo Poo Point Trail to West Tiger RR Grade to West Tiger 3 to complete the loop.

I like to take my time and enjoy nature while I hike so consider joining another trip if you are looking for something faster paced. 

Expect muddy, wet, and slippery conditions.
