Special instructions   This hike is a 90 minute loop up to the Power Line Trail and back, though if the group wants a longer trip we will extend it to reach South Tiger Summit.

Directions  From the southernmost of the two intersections of Issaquah-Hobart Road SE and Tiger Mountain Road SE, follow Tiger Mountain Road for 1/4 mile. The hidden trailhead is on the right, by a "School Bus Stop Ahead" sign

The Good  The shaded hike opens up to west-facing vistas at the summit.

The Bad  Portions of the trail are occasionally muddy. Mosquitoes are common early and late in the day. Much of the trail is narrow, and has heavy vegetation, so long pants are advisable.

Where  Tiger Mountain Road SE near Issaquah-Hobart Road

Notes  South Tiger Mountain offers an easy uphill climb, through timber logging areas and restored forests. This hike avoids the crowds common to other Tiger Mountain trailheads.
