West Tiger Mountain No. 1

Hike up to West Tiger 1. It's 7 miles and 2,500 feet of elevation gain in a popular forest in the I-90 corridor.

getting there

Take Exit 20 (High Point) off of I-90, a few miles east of Issaquah and turn south on 270th Ave SE. Then take an immediate right (west) onto SE 79th Street and park along the street.  Walk east on 79th St to the white gate that crosses the street.  This is a good meeting place. From the gate walk ~0.25 mile east on pavement to the High Point Trailhead and High Point Pond.

on the trail

Hike 0.7 miles on the High Point Trail and turn left on Dwight's Way for 0.5 miles.  Turn right onto the West Tiger No. 1 Trail and follow it to the summit.  If you want some variety you can make a number of loop variations that include the Lower, Middle and Upper Bootleg trails, and the Tiger Mountain Trail.
