An alternative trail to the summit of West Tiger summit #3, this trail follows the buried power lines straight up to the summit. The West Tiger Cable line is the steep way to the summit of West Tiger mountain #3, climbing 2000 feet in just under 1.5 miles.

Great hike but definitely for more work out purposes than for view purposes

This is an awesome hike. The trail itself was an experience. When it is .6 miles to the summit take the left where you get to see Mt Si and few mountain ranges. Otherwise it is a great workout but nothing much of a treat at the top.

Good hike.... trail was wider than others we've been on lately and also not as rocky. It was challenging, but worth it. The views were sparse, however, the birds are not afraid to get close to humans for some good pics...

Brutal without a view. Major workout and worth it!

Nice workout but not good view points

We walked it yesterday, the heat actually wasn't too bad due to the shade from the forest and occasional light breezes. The trail is quite rocky and dry, especially in the last mile or so before the summit. A great workout; I found it physically easier but technically more demanding to descend-my shorter-legged wife found the opposite to be true. The trailhead bathroom was disgusting, not maintained and with trash from ripped bags strewn throughout the floors of both men and women's. Overall, a great hike-it's difficulty rating deriving mostly from the last mile to the summit, in our opinion.

Crazy hike, not for beginners. I took this route by mistake instead of the regular tiger mountain hike. I went few feet up could not return since it was very steep and slippery with loose rocks. But had no choice to hike up this steep climb. Not recommended for beginners.

Tough for a beginner hike. Best to go with someone to help motivate you, otherwise you'd be like me turning around thinking it would be easier to go back, lol! Won't do it alone again!

Great workout! Couldn't even keep a 2 mph average uphill with a day pack.
