This will be a one way traverse with a car shuttle.   We will position cars at both the north and south ends of the trail and circle back to the start following the hike to retrieve vehicles before heading off to celebrate CHS "graduation" at a local pub.   The leader will provide detailed meeting instructions upon close of registration.  Plan on an early start and a full day of hiking! 

Hike the historic "TMT" from Hobart to High Point and experience the complete range of activities found in the Tiger Mountain State Forrest and Tiger Mountain NRCA.  Travel seldom used trails that are part of the original Tiger Mountain trail put in place decades ago by Issaquah Alps pioneers Harvey Manning, Bill Longwell and many others. There are also numerous opportunities for side trips should the group be interested.
