Cruiser hike with little effort. Lovely brisk sunny autumn hike...better hike for hot summer days due to a shaded canopy.

Started in the late morning, the trail provided a quiet, forested adventure with several lookouts along the way. This author, being somewhat out of shape, had to rest a few times on the way up. Trail markings are excellent with no bugs and only a tiny muddy area -- a perfect afternoon in the fall.

10/15/2018 (Monday) - Sunny, 52-58F, moderate traffic, pleasant and cool. Clear view of Mount Si to Mailbox. See many senior hikers older than I.

Found a drone controller on Poo Poo point trail (the flat area where you can see Mt Rainier). Please reply or DM me if this is yours with a description of the controller. Trying to make sure it finds its owner.

crowded, but great views. the paragliders can be entertaining

They’re doing logging near this trail so the trailheads are difficult to find. Got lost a few times due to the trails being cut into different sections with no discernible trail markers. Plus parts of the trail are not well maintained. Not the coolest views either. Just a lot of forest and ferns.

I think the trail markings are not clear. Lost trail on the “loop” . The reason we found it again was due to GPS . Did not like that.

super fun and easy

There aren’t any lakes here I’m not sure why someone posted pictures of one. And the out and back distance is closer to 8 (3.7 each direction). But it was a pleasant hike.

Great trail. Beautiful views!

Great trail for cardio... did it with the kids 7-12 yrs old... they did get tired, but the end was amazing... we got to see people para gliding.. and some beautiful views.

Went on Labor Day and really enjoy this rigorous hike. Had a 10 and 7 year old who only complained a few times. It's uphill the majority of the way so a great workout hike! views at top were beautiful.

Recommend going up a trail (most likely Grand Ridge) but otherwise, straight along is just asking to breath in car exhaust along the highway... Meh no thanks!

Definitely worth the drive out here, beautiful scenery it's like being in a fairy tail.

We did this hike in late September 2018 on a very nice Saturday. About 9 miles, but we did it “backwards”. We went straight up West Tiger #3 first to the summit where the Hiker’s Hut is located. It’s straight up the entire way. On the way back down we cut across on K-3. It says K-3 is unmaintained, but it was in perfect condition. The hike is straight down about 5 miles from the top. There are only 2 views on this entire hike, with the rest being in the dense forest. Don’t get me wrong the forest is amazingly beautiful, but the scenery is the same the entire hike. It was only moderately busy even on a Saturday, with long stretches of seeing nobody.

Went today! Took the bus line trail to nook and around to Talus Trail down to Tiger 3. I like this route better because there are inclined and flat parts as you go up. The ground was a little slippery just after the rocks.

Nice hiking trail. Rocky at the beginning, but then opens up to the woods and it's really nice to get away from the city. The views from the top are great and on a sunny day expect to see a lot of paragliders.

this trail was a great and powerful challenge for me and my (now) fiance. I took her on it and little did she know when we made it to the very scenic view at the top that I would propose to her! The entire hike was very uphill but really made you work for the end. it was hard but in a good way. Worth it
hiked in June

Fun, beautiful rocky trail with steep inclines pretty much all the way. The path is narrow and the rocks can get slippery.

Did it yesterday! Just beautiful hike! Really enjoyed it and the lake is breathtaking. A must do.

If you’re looking for mountain solitude, this is great hike. I rarely see other hikers on this trail. Take exit 20 from I90 East and park near the homeless camp, Hop the gate and catch the Tiger Mountain Trail. Take the Lingering Trail until you reach the Preston Trail then follow that up the mountain. The last section is steep, muddy, and not well marked. Near the top you’ll see a trail to your right. Follow that and you’ll reach another trail that leads to the summit and viewpoint. You’ll also see the Hiker’s Hut there. A good map is a plus!

A first class workout.

Lots of Deer tracks and Bear tracks here!

Great trail, can get busy and narrow at some points if you have dogs. But overall it was fun and good end views.

Awesome view, not too busy, decently rocky

Didn’t make it far, detoured. But was a nice hike while it lasted.

A moderately difficult hike in a lush, dense beautiful forest. The trees provided plenty of shade that made the hike all the more pleasant! Make sure to bring plenty of water since there is no refill station!

great trail for running, decent foraging. unfortunately came back to my window smashed in after hike. Contrary to signage, there are no cameras over looking the parking lot. Still a beautiful trail though, just be conscientious.
