I love this trail.. it's perfect for people who seek solitude. It's a bit confusing at first, with the tent city set up, but just hop over the gate and walk through and you'll get to the trail fairly quickly. From the high point trail, make sure you take the lingering trail.. I actually run on this trail quite often. The last time I did, I saw a black bear. We stared at each other, and both scared each other and I tripped and fell, as he ran off. It was quite funny actually. This trail has very little traffic, which in my opinion is why I saw the bear. I highly recommend carrying bear spray and making plenty of noise if you are by yourself. This is rated as moderate, but there are some parts that remind me of the cable line trail... it's definitely a good workout. The views at the hiker's hut aren't the greatest, but on a clear day you'll see Rainier in all its glory. I love Tiger mountain because you have so many options of taking different trails and making interesting loops. It's a trail runner's paradise!

Beautiful view at top. Pretty steep but good workout.

If you need to practice hills you'll get plenty on this trail. You'll mostly power walk up with some running but the downhill is very runnable. All in all a good workout. Did see a black bear near the end of my run.
