Tiger Mountain is a multi-use recreation area near Seattle. In recent years, new trails and the continued work of Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and WA Department of Natural Resources have produced a surge in Tiger Mountain's popularity. Starting in 2014, trails on Tiger Mountain will no longer be closed seasonally although they will be closed as conditions dictate.
The upper parking area requires a Discover Pass.
This trail is part of the Tiger Mountain trail network. The network has been around for a couple decades. Years of work by the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance has finally resulted in some new mountain bike trail construction. Work parties are posted on the calendar at evergreenmtb.org
The NW Timber trail is a hiking trail first and a mountain biking trail second. Because of this, it's a mellow trail that is a relatively smooth, old school XC offering. It provides some very pretty views and uniquely large number of bridge crossings, however, the trail architecture itself offers nothing interesting and is more a glorified connector back to the main fire road so the rider may get back to the parking.
The trail is commonly used both directions by bikers and hikers. Watch out for other bikers and hikers!
