I see you doing your hikes.Lol this is a pretty nice one.

The start was a little tricky to find, it’s across the street from the side you can park on right by a school bus sign. The hike itself was a breeze. Not too much elevation, on and off tree cover. Saw all of three other people despite there being quite a few cars parked. Overall very nice quick day hike.

very nice,quiet & clean. Trail head was a little hard to find at first...very small sign on side of road. parking is along the road to.

A little muddy in places but not bad considering. Trail's in good shape and I'd say it's more easy than moderate. No beautiful vistas but still a nice trail. Will go back and take the littles next time.

Its a challenging hike but beautiful trails and view at the top. Definitely worth it.

Super muddy/wet. Not that challenging. No views... the trail just ends under the power lines. So, if you want a muddy walk through the woods, this is perfect for you. Otherwise, pick a different trail.

Sometimes Chester just doesn’t like to listen. So then we go home. Nice work dumb dumb

Trail was good. Views??? That option needs to be removed for filtering. There were none. Walked to power line in and out.

great hike, just skinny trail...watch out for mtn bikes of you're hiking!

Horse poop. Lots of horse poop. Other than that, it is a decent little trail.

this trail is awesome, easy to run ! 1 spot for horse poop but go around it, total loop to power lines was 4.23miles.. a couple water spots but you can walk around or step on a log.

Half the so called trail is a road walk. Disappointed. Other half was ok walk thru interesting forest.

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.

Pretty decent trail. There's about a mile long area where the brush is very overgrown and you have a ton of shrubs and branches hitting you. We got lost and it turned into a 9.5 mile trail.

Great early summer hike. I got 9.4 miles and 1800' off climbing out of it. One section was pretty overgrown and there was quite a bit off bear scat spotted.

The second half was a bit of a grind being all on logging roads in full sun so I would do this in an out an back if I did it again.

well kept trails for hiking and biking! although many people parked enjoying the trail never felt on top of each other. combined trails for 9.5 bike. BEAUTIFUL!

Nice, easy trail through the woods. Very lush and full of wildlife. It's a great quick, easy hike to get you out of the house. Some narrow areas but overall a good hike for kids, as well.

4/15/2016 (Friday) -- Solo 8:15am - 1:45pm, cloudy, foggy on upper hills, 50-45-50F. It's hard to find the trail for writing a note of this trip though it takes Chirico and Poo Poo Point to start and return, it's main part is the loop above PPP, sequentially "One View - TMT - Seattle View - West Tiger RR Grade". While moving up to PPP at 9:30am, it was the quietest trek in my six visits. I encountered 7-8 groups of early birds coming down, but no one surpassed me. This time, PPP is not my destination but just a midway station. The loop above PPP was rarely used, so I encountered nobody, just a 4-member team of volunteers maintaining TMT. Though weather forecast showed that temperature at noon might rise to nearly 60F with sun breaks, I found it remained at 45-46F and densely foggy on the upper parts of the hills. I moved so close to the summits, but since I had visited them recently and there was no view in this cloudy day, I decided not to visit them again, but I did find a small loop that I can try in the future for WT1, which provides an awesome view in a fine day. I like the solitude of TMT and WTRR. WTRR is more interesting than expected as it features 4-5 running creeks and well-built footbridges and mixes a smooth "broadway" with sections of steep ups and downs. Seattle View is a very steep, unmarked trail provides no view but a shortcut between TMT and WTRR. Both One View and Seattle View are not marked on the AllTrails map. In the middle of One View, there is a plaque reading "15 Mile Gap". It took me about 3 hours to complete the loop, so I had lunch at PPP at 12:30. There were many people, including kids in spring break, and more people kept coming up on my way down to the parking, where temperature remained 50F (it will rise to above 80F in next two days!)

Nice moderate trail and a good exercise of comparing the Green Trails map with an app and with reality. Both are good to have: Green Trails for planning and for The Big Picture, this app for figuring out the fine nuances of where you are at those confusing intersections.

No great views but a fine trail, we went out for conditioning with heavier packs. Overgrown and nettles/blackberry vines in places. Went to the summit and used the horse trail as well. Great weather today. We had a great time.

Good hike. We started at the inversion railroad and met up with south tiger loop. 7 1/2 miles total. It was pouring down rain and very muddy but what else do you expect in January.
