Very good hiking workout. Incline the whole time. Very rocky though, don’t twist an ankle! Great view at the top.

Perfect easy loop for after work.

Novice hiker. First time on Chirico, and I’ll be back! Weather was great. Plenty of people and dogs out. :) I enjoyed watching the paragliders take off. First time hiking alone, and I felt safe here.

5/2/2018 (Wednesday) -- beautiful weather, lots of dogs, hikers, runners, and paragliders. The trail is basically dry, not muddy, getting broader. Very pleasant.

Great views at the top. Did this with my 13 month old in a carrier. There happened to be a running event the day we went so the parking lot was full and you aren’t allowed to park on the road near the trail. Fox Hollow farms (about a half mile south of the parking lot) has parking for hikers, and had lots of animals for kids to pet as well as snacks, hot dogs, and ice cream for sale....great stop, especially if you’re with kids. Despite the added distance due to parking, I loved this trail. There were lots of people, but it made me feel safe since it was my first time on the trail and I was hiking alone/just with my baby. 2 stunning views at the top, saw 2 bald eagles, and got to watch the hang gliders.

Good trail. Great view of Rainier and got to watch a paraglider launch off. Well maintained. Nice forest hike.

Lots of dogs on trail, friendly hikers, view of Mount Rainier is gorgeous near the top.

I have done this trail before and loved it as much today as I did the first time. Although a Weds, the trail was busy with people and furry four-legged friends. An incredibly beautiful day. It's a great running trail for those who would like the challenge. One woman had run the trail 18 times today!

4/23/2018 (Monday) -- Move up by TMT and K3 for 2.6 miles, costing nearly 2 hours, then lunch on West Tiger RR, and down by West Tiger 3, Talus Rock, Nook. The parking lot and the road have been newly paved in pleasant condition.

Incredible views of Rainier at the top! Great hike, great workout, fun to see the paragliders launch at the top!

Awesome trail. Great rewarding view at top. A little bit crowded during midday. Lots of unleashed dogs.

Nice hike through the woods, steep grade, but not too difficult. Beautiful View at the top. Well worth the effort.

Muddy on the way.

This is my go to trail when I don't have a lot of time. It is quiet and only requires a little effort to get to from the High School side.

Great hike and an even better workout w/ spectacular views.

Great sunset hike. Feel comfortable hiking alone as you are never really alone.

Great hike! Snowed on us at the top no equipment needed.

A bit hard to find the trailhead keep driving to the final parking lot

Hiked this on Saturday, March 17th 2018.

Started on Nook, continued up an unmaintained trail towards the summit of West Tiger 3, (2,522ft) went down Cable Line and circled back to the parking lot. Up and down in under 3hrs.

Conditions were perfect. no snow or ice. Bring layers! Our hands very quickly started stinging from the cold at the top. Hardly any views. its mainly a hike through the trees.

Arrive early if you can. we started before sunrise and by the time we got down, the parking lot and the side of the road were lined with cars.

Discover Pass required.

opened our season with this trail 2 weeks ago and unfortunately everybody else had the same idea. the trail does not have the capacity to safely handle hundreds of people at a time. we had to stop and wait for groups of 10+ often enough that the 3 kids with us did not need breaks up or down. pretty view but not good for the first few nice days in WA

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

Great hike! The views are amazing and it is fun to watch the paraglider.

It has a new entrance since the last time we were there. Cold at the top, a little foggy but great view and we did it in record time...for us...after a knee injury and a few years removed.

Took my High School girls lacrosse team there for a team bonding event. Great switchbacks, great views, and super friendly people on the hike. Highly recommended, for all ages.

Beautiful greenery this time of year rush hike 95% is snow free

Even on a weekday the parking lot was almost full. Pretty neat the whole way except at the top where i used microspikes.

Good challenging hike in Tiger mountain. There’s not much snow up to Poo Poo point, but towards the top there is some ice. The rest of the trial is covered in snow, sometimes up to 6 inches towards west tiger 1. Microspikes and poles helped. I ended up returning from west tiger 1 the same way I came due to lack of clear tracks. Keep in mind that you will take Poo Poo point trail as well as tiger mountain and hidden forest trails. It’s pretty quiet up there past Poo Poo pt!

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.
