Tiger Mountain Trail

Hike the entire Tiger Mountain Trail! Often referred to by its initials, TMT, it's about 16 miles and 2,500 feet of elevation gain. If you're ambitious, tag a few of the Tiger Mountain summits along the way.

Getting There

High Point Trailhead

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.

Tiger Mountain Trailhead

Take Exit 17 (Front Street) off of I-90, and turn south onto Front Street. At the south end of Issaquah, Front Street becomes Issaquah-Hobart Road. At 8.5 miles from I-90 and just before the SR-18 overpass, turn left onto Tiger Mountain Road SE. Drive 0.2 miles and park along the left shoulder of the road.There is no official trailhead.
