Unlike the Tiger Mountain trails along Interstate 90, South Tiger Mountain hardly ever sees the bottom of a boot. Along the route can be found some unusual native Washington plants as well as great representatives of the usual suspects. There are amazing views to the Olympic Mountains and south Puget Sound. For such an easily accessible hike, this place is rare, precious, and beautiful. This loop incorporates the southern terminus of Tiger Mountain Trail, a 16.0-mile traverse that wends its way past or over all six Tiger Mountain peaks.

The trail was not busy; I only saw people at the beginning and end of the trail. The trail is moderately maintained by volunteers but is still fairly muddy. Saw multiple off leash dogs with people. Trail is a little confusing because it is apart of other trails and logging areas. I would have gotten lost without a guide book. Not a difficult climb.
