Most of this trail is on logging roads, so it's not so pretty. It's nice for a rainy day, though, as it's less slippery. I can't speak for views, since it was snowing/raining today. Starting at the Tiger Middle Summit (if you go clockwise), the snow is accumulating, with a significant amount after the East Tiger Mountain.

A LOT of this trail is on logging roads. On a busy day I would not bring my dog. The sun was out and it wasn’t too muddy so all in all great day on the trail!

be aware this is primarily a series of mtn biking trails, the signs all say bikes have right of way over hikers. depending on your route you may be dodging bikes. there is a wide gravel road to the top that is less scenic than the side routes that lets you step aside with ease and comfort.

HikingOver grown

The trail between the service road and tiger mountain trail(TMT) is completely overgrown and nearly impassable at spots. I also saw several piles of fresh bear scat, but luckily did not encounter a bear. After the extreme overgrowth we did not venture further onto TMT and instead took the service road back down and walked along a mountain biking trail. There are plenty of other nice trails on tiger mountain, I do not recommend following the route specified for this hike.

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

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 hike to middle tiger mountain, early enough so not alot of bugs out and the salmon berries were just ripening so you can snack on them up the trail. some portions of the trail were over grown, but just push on through.

This is a solid addition to your off-season training as most of the park's trails are below the snow line. A month ago I used this to kick off a 13 mile loop with 7 peaks... wonderful!

Lovely rolling hike up through the old logging areas on Tiger Mountain. Did the hike in mid November and the cool breeze kept the hike really pleasant and bug free. Recommended for a nice leg stretch close to the city!

First to Review

Make sure you have a Discovery Pass. They are required to park closer to the trailhead. We parked at the enterance as we didn't have one (I now check the WTA website before heading out). Also, watch for cyclist as there are a lot of them on this trail.
