This trail is definitely not as popular as West Tiger Mountain Trail #3 which means you'll have a little more privacy. It is a constant uphill climb all one way and you are rewarded with some great views of Mount Rainier and the South Sound. Overall, the hike itself is a big lackluster.

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.

Nothing extremely spectacular about this hike. We took the road most of the way up and trails on the way down. It was littered with people on bikes and workers flying down the hill in cars. Honestly, it's a good workout trail if you live close. Otherwise, find a different trail if you're looking for something a little more serene and remote.

This hike was straight up on a gravel maintenance road. The views were amazing at the top, but it was a steep trek trying to get there. Great workout!
