Found a drone controller on Poo Poo point trail (the flat area where you can see Mt Rainier). Please reply or DM me if this is yours with a description of the controller. Trying to make sure it finds its owner.

crowded, but great views. the paragliders can be entertaining

Great trail for cardio... did it with the kids 7-12 yrs old... they did get tired, but the end was amazing... we got to see people para gliding.. and some beautiful views.

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.

We did this hike in late September 2018 on a very nice Saturday. About 9 miles, but we did it “backwards”. We went straight up West Tiger #3 first to the summit where the Hiker’s Hut is located. It’s straight up the entire way. On the way back down we cut across on K-3. It says K-3 is unmaintained, but it was in perfect condition. The hike is straight down about 5 miles from the top. There are only 2 views on this entire hike, with the rest being in the dense forest. Don’t get me wrong the forest is amazingly beautiful, but the scenery is the same the entire hike. It was only moderately busy even on a Saturday, with long stretches of seeing nobody.

Went today! Took the bus line trail to nook and around to Talus Trail down to Tiger 3. I like this route better because there are inclined and flat parts as you go up. The ground was a little slippery just after the rocks.

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.

awesome trail with beautiful view on top. definitely recommended.

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

Didn’t make it far, detoured. But was a nice hike while it lasted.

I haven't ridden this trail in 25 years, and that was on an aluminum, front-suspension only bike. fast forward to today - outstanding trail maintenance and a serious bike upgrade for me had me remebering some great times out here and smiling the whole way - even during the climb. In true NW style, someone was handing out raindogs (Rainier beer

Grate hiking, nice place and fresh air.

Great hike close to Seattle. Rocky but well maintained trail. Fun to watch the paragliders at the top on a sunny day. You will have lots of company.

5 stars for beauty, but a lot of people. trail was very rocky so recommend thick sole boots not trail runners.

Was cloudy when we started our hike but did get some nice patches of sun. I personally love scenic hikes , which this does not have much of . We started the trail in a counterclockwise direction and were mostly hiking under a canopy of trees . This particular route we took had a trail closure which was not posted . The trail closed was the intersection of Preston trail and west tiger loop. Luckily we had Alltrails to get us in the right direction. We ended up taking west tiger to K3 to finish our loop which was steep down hill with slight switchbacks . It was great exercise and practice. We had the trail to ourselves for the most part. A tree came down about 50 yards from where we were which was cool to witness yet eerie at the same time .

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

Great day hike near the city


Great hike, seem to have the mountain to myself. The trail’s in good shape, a little tight in places. Bring your phone/GPS, you will definitely need to refer to them from time to time. Warm up in the parking lot, you will get right to work!

2018/06/02 Saturday (Hiking Date). Very good hike. Lot of crowd. Paragliding at the same point. Near to Issaquah Front street. Has designated parking lot but small. I would go there again.

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.

I went on this hike twice. It has a nice view and you could see people jumping off for paragliding. The trail is well marked and easy to find your way to the top. There’s an incline most of the way to the top but the incline isn’t steep. This is a good beginners hike and the views are definitely worth it.

great trail for beginners with amazing views

short, but steep hike for conditioning purpose. did it non-stop and took about 50 mins at my pace with a group of friends going up.
the view is good, both from cherico point and poo poo point which is further up.

parking lot is free. took 25 mins from bellevue. great location and great trail.

Recently did a similar loop, swinging by Poo Poo Point via Poo Top on my way down from West Tiger #1 and then back to High Point via Tradition Lake. Weather was cloudy, so there weren’t really any views at West Tiger #3 or #2, but it was still a heck of an experience! 10.6 miles with the additions.
