Meet at the TH ready to hike by 4:45pm. Please RSVP if you'd like to carpool from Mercer Island Park&Ride at 4:15.

Please note that we're planning to do all three summits out and back from Tiger 3 along the summit crest trail. That adds a couple miles and a thousand feet of gain.

This is a fit group that doesn't take any rest breaks, except for a long, social break at the summit (in this case, the funky little hut on Tiger 1). We hike at our individual paces uphill, and then hike down together.  This is our last hike of the season before we lose daylight savings time, so will likely be festive at the summit break - think shared food and drink in the hut.
