Updated March 29, 2018

Driving Directions: From Issaquah head east on Front Street (which becomes Issaquah-Hobart Road after it leaves town). Go about 6 miles past the city limits, turn left (north) onto SE Tiger Mountain Road this is immediately before the Highway 18 junction. Continue for .4 mile before parking on the left shoulder at a wide pullout. The trail is on the right near "School Bus Stop Ahead" The trailhead is on the right however the trailhead sign cannot be seen from road you have to hike a very short distance.

Trail Stats: About 7.5 miles and 1600 foot gain. There are many ways to do this loop and here is our track
