7/12/2018 (Thursday) - My loop is up via Nook (0.8), Talus Rock (westbound 0.1), Section Line (steep 0.5), W Tiger RR (level 0.4), SEA (steep, 0.4), Summit #2 (0.2) = 2.5 hours, lunch. Then down via WT2 (0.2), TMT (0.3), K-3 above RR (0.2), K-3 below RR (0.4), TMT (2.0). WTRR cross High Point Creek collapses. TMT is rerouted. This is a hot day, but temperature in the woods is 10 degrees cooling than that under the sun.

We did a little bit of a different loop - 3 summits, minus poo poo point - starting from the high school:
High school trail > section line trail > #3 > #2 > tiger mountain road > #1 > poo top trail > tiger mountain trail > one view trail > poo point trail > high school trail

According to my garmin we did 9.1 miles, 3400 ft total elevation. (Wish I had recorded it in app, but next time!) In the third mile we climbed 1300 ft alone - the section line trail is no joke! Highly recommend if you’re looking for a challenge on top of hitting all the summits in one go. It was a blast!

Great three summit hike. Very windy on West 1. Beautiful TMT trail heading back to the trailhead.

This is my "go to" conditioning hike in Washington. It's a good 9-9.5 mile loop (depending on whether you park outside the gate) with some interesting things to see along the way (Murat's Bridge, the Christmas Tree, Zombie Bridge, Hiker's Hut...). Getting to the Tiger 1 summit will reward you with a great view of Mount Rainier on a clear day, and it's pretty much the only view you'll find on Tiger Mountain (2 and 3 give you a great view of trees!) Tiger 3 is easy enough to trail run down, though you could go the other way (Tiger 3-2-1!) if you want a little more challenge.
