Conditioning Hikes - West Tiger Mountain No. 1

This was a nice loop trip over West Tiger 2 and 1 on a beautiful day.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Since I did this loop 2 weeks earlier, a lot of snow below 1000' has melted, but above that, conditions are snowy and sometimes icy.  Microspikes definitely are advised.

We did a counter-clockwise loop over West Tiger 2 and West Tiger 1, using the K-3 trail on the way up, and descending via the Preston Junction and Fred's Corner.  The weather forecast had called for a sunny but windy day; we had plenty of sun, but there were only a few brief periods of moderate wind.  So, all in all, quite a pleasant day, with a nice stop for lunch with views near the Hiker's Hut on WT 1.
