Day Hike - West Tiger Mountain 1-2-3

Crystal clear day with great views as we did our post Thanksgiving conditioner on Tiger.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Trail is in pretty good shape. Coming down the Section Line trail, we saw four "Unmaintained trail" signs. It is so well trod you wouldn't know otherwise. Plenty of trail signs at intersections.

Plenty of parking at 8 am.  Discover Pass required, but it turned out to be a pass free day. We were doing a "Turkey Burner," the steep uphill was expected. Views at all three summits were fabulous. Recent logging  gave us  views we didn't have in the past: Lake Sammamish, Lake Washington, Puget Sound, Seattle, Bellevue, Mt. Baker and central Cascades, Mt. Rainier. We had a great group, very friendly. There were plenty of other hikers, but there is so much room on Tiger, we didn't feel crowded.
