Tiger Mountain is a mountain in the U.S. state of Washington.MountainThe mountain has six peaks in the center of the Issaquah Alps forming a 13500acre triangle between Interstate 90 (I-90) on the north, Issaquah-Hobart Road on the southwest, and State Route 18 (SR 18) on the southeast. Immediately to the west is Squak Mountain followed by Cougar Mountain, to the south east are Mc Donald and Taylor Mountains, and Rattlesnake Ridge.Tiger Mountain State Forest was established in 1981. In 1989, the entire Issaquah Plateau in the northwest corner was designated as a conservation area, the West Tiger Mountain Natural Resources Conservation Area, accessed by a large trailhead at Exit 20 on I-90.The most crowded trail leads to the bald summit of West Tiger #3, with a panoramic view of Seattle and points to the south and east. It is a 6.2mi hike, round-trip, with an elevation change of about 2000ft. The nearby peaks of West Tiger #2 and West Tiger #1 provide essentially the same view, but with fewer obstructions.Poo Poo Point, a bare shoulder of West Tiger Mountain, is a bare ridge on the west side of Tiger Mountain. The point is named for the sound the steam whistles would make when signaling loggers. The point is a popular launching point for paragliding and hang gliding. The point by the Chirico Trail which starts at the landing zone for the hang gliders and paragliders in a field adjacent to the Issaquah-Hobart Road, or by taking the High School Trail which begins on 2nd Avenue just south of Issaquah High School. Many people fly year-round (weather permitting) and have flown cross-country flights exceeding 75mi.

  • It's two hrs hike. Elevation would be 3000 FT once you hit the summit. Very calm hike with not too many annoying people around you.  more »
  • Tiger mountain is very accessible from Seattle although some of the trailhead parking can be packed on nice days. Lots of well-signed trails but I’d recommend downloading a free map before heading out...  more »
  • Do this hike all the way to the top of this mountain. Breathtaking views. Great place to take amazing pictures. The hike takes a good 45 min to an hour to get up but it's beautiful all the way up. Par...  more »

  • Some of the best riding in the area. Off the Grid and Preston are challenging and fun. A huge thank you to Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance for their work!
  • Beautiful, but be careful not to climb to wrong summit. Signs are sparse once on trails. Maps are even less sparse and cellphone reception is limited.
  • Drove up to Tiger Mountain with Seattle Paragliding outfit (located just in Issaquah). Got the best view flying around Tiger Mountain. My best and longest tandem paragliding flight so far.
  • Had some decent hiking here. Mostly woods, with easy to traverse, but sometimes steep, trails, often with inadequate marking making our map quite useful.
  • Broken oil pan at entrance on 5 m/h. Oil was leaked Other cars jumped and hited too. Rainger says it's ok. They dont think to fix the way. When I buying Discovety Pass I paying for service. Jul 15 2017. Just waste money and day off.
