Be prepared to yield to many, many cyclists. It's not a particularly amazing hike, so unless you plan on mountain biking I would save your time and sorry be there gas going somewhere else.

Awesome time here! Next time I will only do this on a bike. Definitely feels more fitting to ride here than walk the 10 miles we did.

This route has a little less road and a little more trail. A good day for Benjamin and myself

We went in at the trail head off the Issaquah Hobart Rd SE exit off Hwy 18 E. maps online are accurate as to where the trail head is at. It is marked, but discrete. We took dogs on leashes and found the terrain rolling and pleasant, but very wet. Waterproof footwear definitely recommended for wet season hiking. Trail is well maintained without losing the wilderness feel. We only went about an hour in and backtracked out.

Iverson RR to TMT then around S Tiger back to West-Side road. Spotted a black bear at the intersection. Lots of salmon berries along the trail for the bearies!

Mostly through the forest. No viewpoints or water features but a nice hike.

Nice hike! Steady incline but not to difficult. It has great views of the valley. I'd recommend this trail

To get to the really good single track you have to go over 2 miles of steep uphill to get there.once you get to the top it is very fun but it's a tough climb

Over a 3 mile ride/walk to the summit. Gorgeous views on the way down. This was my first time @Tiger not knowing what to expect. I'm probably going to get in better shape before I attempt it again and familiarize myself with the trails by map. Not clearly marked for a first timer.
