Tiger Mountain Lowlands

The Tradition Lake Plateau has a trail network of easy loop hikes up to five miles and with minimal elevation gain.


Take Exit 20 (High Point) off of I-90, a few miles east of Issaquah and turn south on 270th Ave SE. Just a few yards south of I-90, turn right onto SE 79th St and continue west. The pavement ends in 0.4 miles where a gate is open each day from dawn until dusk. Continue through the gate and park in the lot. If you arrive before dawn or plan to come out after dusk, park on the road east of the gate.
