Day hike at Tiger #3

A trip report for West Tiger No. 3
Posted by MaxHeimdal
Road Issues: Road is great
Trail Condition: Easy to navigate
Bugs: Not an issue
Snow Level: No snow

Decided to check out this trail, I'm new to hiking so I'm starting out with trails that I feel are maneageable without a lot of navigation and are clearly marked so I thought I would give this one a shot!

My friend and I got there around 9am, and on a weekday the parking lot was pretty empty (though when we returned there was quite a few cars there). The trail goes from a little steep to flat to steep again...which was a nice change in pace as we went on. It was really quiet and a bit rainy in the morning so make sure to bring good shoes so that you don't slide on rocks, specially on the way going down.

The trail runs along the side of the West Tiger Cable Line trail near the top, I actually almost veered off the trail and into the cable line one once since I was just looking down at my footing, so that's something to watch out for if you're a newbie like me.

The summit wasn't anything magnificent since it's surrounded by trees all around, that being said though it is a nice spot to stop and have lunch and relax before making your way down.

Great spot and thanks Tmber for the suggestion!
