The hike up is nothing special but the view from the top with all the paragliders taking off is amazing. Absolutely worth the effort to see. Met some guys that work for the paragliding company so the next time I'm back I'll be with them taking the more scenic way back down the mountain.

4/23/18- a beautiful sunny day. The mountain was out so there were great views. There are 2 different major view points. About 2.5 miles up, there is a great view of Mount Rainer. Another mile and there is the top viewpoint where the paraglyders take off. It was a great late morning hike. On a Monday morning, we arrived around 930am and we got the last parking spot. The parking is limited and the port a potties are not maintained well-a mess and no toilet paper. It's a very dog friendly trail. Our dog had a blast. There were quite a few people with dogs, which was great. Not great if you don't like dogs. Overall, a great hike and more uphill than I anticipated.

4/23/2018 (Monday) -- Move up by TMT and K3 for 2.6 miles, costing nearly 2 hours, then lunch on West Tiger RR, and down by West Tiger 3, Talus Rock, Nook. The parking lot and the road have been newly paved in pleasant condition.

Try not to run down the hill. It can be disastrous.

We parked on the side of the road on Hwy 11. This route is 1.5 miles longer making your hike 8 miles round trip. It’s also much steeper with a lot more switchbacks that make you want to turn around. A few small creeks to cross but they were not a problem. At the 2 mike mark, you will come to a lookout point with a bench to sit down and have a snack. It’s a beautiful view and if you feel you need to stop there then that would be the place. If you have the energy, keep going. Once to the top of Oyster dome all the switch backs were worth it. It’s amazing up top.

Good, steady, upward trail! Great view at the top and we saw a paraglider attempting to take off.

Great workout! Ascending can be tough but the reward is outstanding! descending was easier but steep.

nice short hike

Beautiful nature jaunt! This was a perfect day/time of year for this trail. The signs were a bit confusing at times, so I recommend having a map or knowing the intersections and names of the trails ahead of time. Definitely dog and kiddo friendly w/light traffic. I will be back with my dogs when in the area again. Great experience!

Beautiful well maintained trail.. Took it from Issaquah High school.. Totally worth every sweat drop going up..

Muddy on the way.

The trail was well maintained and moderately trafficked. There are some slippery roots near the creeks so use caution. The view is worth the switch backs that will make you wonder how much further. But the switch backs are only .75 or less miles depending on where you are at on them from the sign to turn toward the dome. Which is only .25 miles from that! Use caution with small children and the dome edges .

Steep. Wet. Worth it.

Great snowshoe! Lots of snow still, snowed a couple times last week when we were there. Moderate hike, some of the best mountain views so easily accessible!

Couldn't find a parking area that looked legit. Otherwise, nice trail.

Long steady climb. Sunday was very rainy and muddy. We loved it but almost no view. The descent was very easy on the knees, which made me happy.

Nice hike, initial gain, then meanders for a bit. Huge puddle on trail, so was good time to head back. Look forward to hiking it again in the summer and getting to trailend.

Went here on 3/31/17. Was slightly cloudy and sunny 60°F. Starts out fairly simple, then gets super steep. Makes you sweat, pack lunch for the top and a good view of paragliders. Caution for people running down or up. Was very enjoyable. Parking is scarce, parked at the church.

first hike on the west coast! temperature was great. there are a few stretches of up hill battles. all in all a nice hike with a lot of scenic views throughout the woods. not much of a spot to lookout at other mountains.

Great trail and beautiful view. Get there early, by noon it’s hard to find parking.

A great trail. From the trailhead to Debbie's point is 8 miles roundtrip. A strenuous hike, and I recommend hiking poles, they will come in handy here.

Great hike! Snowed on us at the top no equipment needed.

A bit hard to find the trailhead keep driving to the final parking lot

The most beautiful trail yet!! We hiked up to Lily Lake first and then Oyster Dome. When we got back to my car, three people where paragliding. There was a little bit of snow around the lake but everything else was clear.

Hiked this on Saturday, March 17th 2018.

Started on Nook, continued up an unmaintained trail towards the summit of West Tiger 3, (2,522ft) went down Cable Line and circled back to the parking lot. Up and down in under 3hrs.

Conditions were perfect. no snow or ice. Bring layers! Our hands very quickly started stinging from the cold at the top. Hardly any views. its mainly a hike through the trees.

Arrive early if you can. we started before sunrise and by the time we got down, the parking lot and the side of the road were lined with cars.

Discover Pass required.

It's a nice trail but suffering from erosion. Bring hiking poles, they will be very helpful, and the view from the top is very worth the hike up.

Amazing views of Salish Sea. We went in July so no mud or ice. Incredibly haunting old trees despite the sign of loggers from a time past. Strenuous but you can do it with kids if you park at the top lot.

Can’t wait to go back (bonus that it gives an excuse to visit Bellingham afterwards for a beer at http://www.aslanbrewing.com

Well maintained trail. Nicely marked and had some great viewpoints along the way. Went on a rainy cloudy day, will definitely need to go on a clear day.
