(4.3/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
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, the 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.
