Hiked this in the height of WA's summer. Nook trail was a steep climb and a good workout. West Tiger 3 was moderate, but the view was very underwhelming. Overall a good workout, but I would not do again. My phone recorded closer to 6 miles total.

Extremely busy but well maintained trail. Does get steep in parts but the view at the top is beautiful. The Paragliders were tons of fun to watch and many of them offered tandem rides down.

This hike is nice and beautiful. It’s an easy hike up and a great place. Unlike Mount Si and Mailbox Peak Trail, this trail is not crowded at all. The view at top is gorgeous.

Trail condition is pretty good. There is a creek crossing that’s not bad at all. The upper 1.5 miles has a thin layer of snow (about 1”) but no microspikes are needed.

Parking usually is not a problem at this hike because it is less crowded.

My AllTrails recording says 8.2 mi round trip and 3287 ft elevation gain. It took us 3 hours and 45 minutes to do the whole hike up and down.

seems they provide a title to the review versus letting me do it? odd.

hiked a Friday morning in November. got there at 9am. plenty of parking and pooping dogs. great trail. rained a good bit, 40F. didn't get too wet.

nice walk up and great views

This is a 10 mile hike to the big waterfall, definitely not 7.5 so plan accordingly. We planned for the 7.5 mile hike and ended up finishing in the dark. There we’re a few of us who misplanned and ended the trip in the pitch black. It’s absolutely stunning, though. Spectacular views throughout the hike.

Mushrooms, moss, ferns, leaves, and a nice view of Issaquah and Lake Sammamish at the top. Bring hiking boots not Chuck Taylors.

This is a perfect fall hike!! In the beginning, there are stone steps that make it truly magical — like a scene from Lord of the Rings. The views at the top are lovely to enjoy as you rest and eat lunch. It’s also a treat to watch the para gliders launch. Tips: 1) bring lunch and water 2) hike is actually more like 4.5 miles 3) the hike down is much faster and took us half the time as going up 4) this is a beautiful hike to do in October, and the views are even more spectacular with the contrasting fall colors. Love :)

We hiked here on wet Monday, October 1st, 2018 via Cherico Trail to Poo Poo Point. We did 5.5 miles roundtrip with 1600 ft elevation gain. Nice well maintained trails. Some parts of the trails are rocky. Hiking shoes are definitely needed here. Lovely Autumn color in between the green forestry was nice to see.
Even though it rained during the hike, but we were protected under the canopy of trees almost the entire trails. The view of Issaquah, and Lake Sammamish in the distance was great. Didn’t see any hang gliders at this time. But will definitely come back in a better day.

10/22/2018 (Monday) - I got two minutes having the site only for my lone soul while reaching there. It's still hazy in the far after heavy fog in the morning.

Crowded but great views and watching paragliders is fun.

Great hike. A little disappointed by the lack of dogs...

Just checked this trail today. As some have mentioned, the road to get to the trail is pretty brutal. I have a Jeep and I hit a few very iffy spots. Once you are there the parking is sufficient for about 10-12 vehicles. No facilities nearby.

The trail is in good shape, well maintained, with minimal roots. The bookends of the hike are rocky, but not bad at all. I experienced minimal bugs and people. It was just me and my little 9lb dog and we made it to the peak in about an hour and made it back down in about 45 minutes.

The peak is a sight to behold! Amazing 180 mountain views on a clear day. To get up to the peak there is a cable wire to use, which came in handy! We sat up there for about 30 minutes, had a nice lunch, and prepared for the climb down.

This is easily one of my new favorites for a shorter, moderate hike!

Random note: as we hit about the halfway point I regained cellphone service (AT&T) and the signal grew stronger the higher we went. Which is always nice if there is an emergency.

crowded, but great views. the paragliders can be entertaining

Went on Labor Day and really enjoy this rigorous hike. Had a 10 and 7 year old who only complained a few times. It's uphill the majority of the way so a great workout hike! views at top were beautiful.

Fun hike! Not hard if you pace yourself. Once at the ridge its an easy cruize to the scramble, which is loads of fun with the cable to help. View was mist today, so coming back when there is sun.

Road has some very rough patches, suv highly recommended, if not required.

Nice hiking trail. Rocky at the beginning, but then opens up to the woods and it's really nice to get away from the city. The views from the top are great and on a sunny day expect to see a lot of paragliders.

this trail was a great and powerful challenge for me and my (now) fiance. I took her on it and little did she know when we made it to the very scenic view at the top that I would propose to her! The entire hike was very uphill but really made you work for the end. it was hard but in a good way. Worth it
hiked in June

Fun, beautiful rocky trail with steep inclines pretty much all the way. The path is narrow and the rocks can get slippery.

We hiked the trail for the first time today and really enjoyed it. We were not prepared with the right gears and got soaked all the way up ! Hale and heavy rain. It is definitely a long long ascent and very steep ascent to the summit. We really enjoyed it tough!! The way down is tough due to the loose rocks. This trail is harder than mailbox peak in my opinion. One of the dog hikes with us and he did fine. A must do if you want a nice Sunday challenge.

Great trail, can get busy and narrow at some points if you have dogs. But overall it was fun and good end views.

Awesome view, not too busy, decently rocky

Trail is easy to follow and maintained but it is pretty steep and it’s made of about 80% loose rocks which made it hard on the knees. The other part I didn’t care for was I could hear the interstate almost the entire time until I reached the last 1.2 miles. So it wasn’t really a peaceful “nature” escape from the city life but it was still a nice day hike. Heard a couple woodpeckers and even picked a couple huckleberries. Started at 10am and hit the peak at about 12:30. I choose a poor day to go because the top was nothing but fog but I got a few nice views on the way back down once I climbed back out of the mist/fog. I only saw a couple people on the way back down so foot traffic was almost none. It was a good, hard, work-out but definitely could have been in better shape before I tried it haha my dogs loved it and were pretty tired by the end.

Beautiful view!

I've hiked most of Tiger Mountain. There are a lot better hikes in the Pacific Northwest.

Great challenge for an out of shape hiker! NOT 2.6!! It was about 2.6 for one way! Lots of people seem to think it’s super short but it is definitely about 5 miles round trip.

Good trail. Definitely and up and back route. Up, up, and up. The trail was reasonably dry except for the water on the brush that is encroaching on the trail in spots. We got quite wet brushing by them but it dried quickly in the sun and there was plenty of that as we reached the summit. A lot of rock and scree. Great views at the top.

Beautiful hike. Pretty quick hike, but you’ll definitely get a good workout in. Amazing view from the top. Lots of smoke because of wildfires at this time.

Fairly steep but great trail. Leave early to avoid the crowds.

Good exercise, and great for your first trail run. Really crowded trail. If you are interested in great views it is better to go elsewhere.
