Great trail. Well maintained. Lots of people on front half with much less on back half. Beautiful peak views. Snow pack after peak 1 heading down so glad I had micro spikes.

Nice workout loop. Misty day so no views but a beautiful, peaceful walk in the woods. Recommend the anti clockwise direction, up Tiger 3, down Tiger 1. Hit snow ~ 750m on Tiger 3 ascent, trail is snow covered through saddle to Tiger 2 & on to Tiger 1 down to ~ 700m. Snow was soft enough that I didn’t put my spikes on but glad I had them, if it was colder they would have been absolutely necessary as the trail would get slippery fast. Lower elevation on Lingering trail pretty muddy, not surprising for this time of year and probably greater than normal traffic. No worries with hiking boots, bit wet & muddy for trail runners unless you don’t mind wet feet. Good loop for a misty day, few people, nice.

Nice day for a hike! A little muddy to begin with, and then about half way up the trail started to be pretty snowy. Probably didn’t need spikes, but put them on anyway and felt much more comfortable, especially on the descent. Looking forward to coming back and doing the whole thing when I’ve got a bit more time!

First half is a lot of climbing but trails were clear and mud wasn’t too bad. After passing West Tiger 1 trails begin to get muddy and slick. Overall fun route, my first time on Lingering Trail.

I did the loop counter-clockwise. Starting right before the summit of tiger 3 there's some snow/ice/slush. A lot of snow at the summit. There was also quite a lot of snow after the hiker's hut, in tiger 1, and I was glad to have spikes, especially since I was coming down.

HikingBlowdownGreat!MuddyRockyScramble

Took the counter clockwise route when I arrived at the trailhead just after 8am. As mentioned in previous reviews, there are numerous downed trees throughout the entire trail. While the majority were easy to crawl over and under, some of the trees make finding the actual trail somewhat difficult. I highly recommend going the direction I did because West Tiger #3 & #2 aren’t nearly as spectacular as West Tiger #1 is! From the notorious hikers hut, spectacular views & overly friendly birds - it’s an easy choice to save the best for last! Trail was busiest during the West Tiger 3 & 2 portion with everyone being very respectful and all had masks. No snow throughout the entire trail. This was my first time exploring this region of the Tiger Mountain State Forests and I will surely be back soon for another expedition!

Leaves and pine needles kept the mud to a minimum. Tiger #2 and #3 had a few people, #1 was empty and had the best views and most interesting terrain. Dwights trail is a fun segment with some small log bridges.

Great hike - two dogs and another soul. Left the lot at 130. Very little snow on trail no traction needed. Didn’t see another person after summit #3. Head lamps for the last mile.
