I have it easy: I live within a block of a Tiger Mountain trailhead, so I'm up there nearly every day with my dog or a friend. But since it's about a 15 minute drive (not in rush hour) from downtown Seattle, and is accessible by the Sound Transit 554 bus, anyone can enjoy the wonders of Tiger. There are... More

Tiger Mountain is a great place to hike any time of year, but especially in winter when higher elevations are snow covered. The High Point trailhead offers easy walks around Tradition Lake as well as starting points for more challenging hikes. A tip is to park along the road before the gate if you don't have the Discover Pass. There... More

We hiked to poo poo point which is steep all the way up and down (but not steep that you need to climb down on your butt, but need definitely a good pair of hiking boots). Still the climb is worth it for the view. You can also see paragliders in summer time.

When to the top. Trail in good shape. Not too strenuous but a fair amount of vertical. Most of walk is under canopy of leaves. Very pleasant.

If you take this trail to the first view point (based on the sign), you will be disappointed. It says there is a view but I hiked with my wife and kids for over 3 miles up hill only to discover that you couldn't see anything from there. Later someone explained to us that there is another peak at Tiger... More

Many beautiful trails ..look for the bus but watch out for bears! Be sure to sign in at the trailhead and get a map.

My SO and I are in really good shape and work out daily and it took us a little over an hour to get to the top. The walk has tons of switchbacks but is not extremely challenging, it just takes a while to get to the top. We climbed camelback mountain the month before and it was nothing for... More

I started riding TM in the early 90's and still love the place. The parking lot is much safer and the trails are well marked there are walking trails for families at the lower levels and double black diamond trails for the experts only riders. The trails criss cross the main road so it's nearly impossible to get lost. The... More

Tiger Mtn is awesome. You can start at one of the several trailheads and keep walking/exploring for days (if you'd like). The trail system is very well maintained and connects to other mountain systems. You can hike, mountain bike, run, and watch wildlife. Best part: you can jog/run/bike out of Tiger Mtn and often you are just a few blocks... More

This is a very good hike for people that are in shape. The trail that goes up the face of Tiger Mountain is well marked and well traveled. Its an easy hike so if one suffers from knee or back problems this is not for you. In recent years, the hike has drawn more people than there is parking available... More
