dogs on leash
The 13,745-acre Tiger Mountain State Forest, including the West Tiger Mountain Natural Resources Conservation Area, is one of DNR's most well known forests. As a working forest, Tiger Mountain State Forest is managed by DNR to provide sustainable revenue in support of public services.
Discover Pass required for this hike. Nice parking area, covered port a potties, lots of mile markers/ signs..More of a walking trail then a actual hike. Great for all skill levels, mostly flat with no incline. Dogs on leash welcome. If your like me you can take trails off of the main trail to accumulate more footage/miles.
There aren't many viewpoints but this is a very lush and beautiful area. Our biggest complaint with this trail was the amount of horse poop present. There were narrow parts of the trail that were very difficult to get around the piles. You constantly had to be looking at the ground to make sure you weren't going to step in anything because it was just about every minute that you would run into another pile. We ended up hiking the forest road down and then onto Tiger Mountain Rd SE back to our car just so we wouldn't have to deal with it. Doing this actually brought us to a nice viewpoint where we were able to overlook the valley and see other mountains in the distance. Overall this is not a bad hike, we just wish there was better trail etiquette from the equestrian riders.
