Let’s plan to meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Tibbetts Park & Ride in Issaquah to check in and organize for the very short trip to the trailhead.  More details will be provided by the leader right after the close of registration.

A popular and scenic hike up the Northwest shoulder of West Tiger Mountain taking the traditional (and longer) High School trail.  Weather permitting, we will enjoy great views of Lakes Sammamish and Washington as well as the Olympics in the distance.  And if the conditions are right, we can watch the graceful para-gliders launch and soar high above Tiger and nearby Squak Mountains.  After a rest and a snack, we will make our way back to the trailhead before a refreshment stop at one of the nearby Pubs.
