Meet on the frontage road that parallels I-90, off exit 20, at the Cable Line trailhead sign. Please be ready to start at 6:30pm. No parking pass needed to park here.

We will ascend Cable Line via power hiking/trail running, run down West Tiger 3, then run along the footpath from the main parking lot by Tradition Lake back to the I-90 frontage road.  West Tiger 3 trail offers smoother, easier footing for the descent.

Cable Line is pretty steep and can have loose rocks and dirt, so if you have collapsible poles that you can stow on your pack for the downhill portion of this trail run, you may wish to bring them. Please be sure to bring your headlamp and a jacket.
