when pop out on to gravel road go beyond .25 of a mile to more trail heads on tiger mountain.

Benjamin and I random tiger hike. Lots of trails a little road. We enjoyed the day

I like the trail but I don't think I truly came across a railroad type crossing or tracks which was what I expected. The trail does have several other trails near it as well.

Be prepared to yield to many, many cyclists. It's not a particularly amazing hike, so unless you plan on mountain biking I would save your time and sorry be there gas going somewhere else.

My advice would be to avoid West Side Road, which is a crushed gravel road for vehicles. It is better to stick with Iverson Railroad Trail, which is a pleasant pine needle covered path that gently winds through the forest.

I did this trail with my 10 year old. It was a decent climb up from the lot, but only for about 15-20 minutes. Then it evens out and is absolutely beautiful. It does pour out onto a fire road for a bit at the end, but it was hilly so it's still a good workout. Would do again.

Added a little extra to the doggy standard

First 1.8 miles was through the woods and was a great view and end up at the wide rocky road and walk about 1.5 miles back.

Awesome time here! Next time I will only do this on a bike. Definitely feels more fitting to ride here than walk the 10 miles we did.

Damn I'm tired of the rain. Also trying to get little man to become the trail dog he always wanted to be. I love this dog

This route has a little less road and a little more trail. A good day for Benjamin and myself

Nice easy trail.

Easy hike..... first 1.8 miles through the forest was lovely and to our surprise/dismay the loop finished with 1.6 miles of wide road ....West side Road trail.

We went in at the trail head off the Issaquah Hobart Rd SE exit off Hwy 18 E. maps online are accurate as to where the trail head is at. It is marked, but discrete. We took dogs on leashes and found the terrain rolling and pleasant, but very wet. Waterproof footwear definitely recommended for wet season hiking. Trail is well maintained without losing the wilderness feel. We only went about an hour in and backtracked out.

6/15/2016 (Wednesday) - Solo, 2:00 - 6:00, 8 miles, 56-60F, mostly cloudy with sun breaks and blue skies. I go up via Master Link and Quick Link (one-way upward for bikers) and down via Predator (one-way downward for bikers, not open to hikers, steep, rugged, dangerous if bikes dashing down). Master Link is relatively new, gently graded with numerous switchbacks, comfortable for hiking. East Tiger southern slope (all the trails I passed) seems being engulfed by forest fire many years ago, littered with decayed trumps and trunks. East Tiger summit features view toward the southwest direction, one can see Mt Rainier if weather is fine. This area is currently used mostly by bikers.

Iverson RR to TMT then around S Tiger back to West-Side road. Spotted a black bear at the intersection. Lots of salmon berries along the trail for the bearies!

5/6/2016 (Friday) - We started from Summit parking place (only 4-5 cars at 9:30), moved westward, connecting to South Tiger trail. Ivernon RR is easy, pleasant woody trail, about 1.8 miles. We then continued to South Tiger's western side, then the southmost section of TMT, a total of 6.5-7 miles. A pleasant sunny morning 65-75F, Light traffic. But when we come back to Summit, it has become full, mostly parked by bikers.

one of my favorite trails to take kids on. very nice beginner trail.

We found this on accident looking for the start to south tiger mountain loop. 1.5 miles through the forest. We ended up connecting with the south tiger trail to stretch the hike out to about 7 miles

Mostly through the forest. No viewpoints or water features but a nice hike.
