Trail shared by Vikram Sahney

This wide, well maintained trail is an excellent descent trail after ascending the Cable Line Trail.

Description

This is the popular West Tiger #3 trail that connects to/from the Cable Line Trail to the trailhead. This broad, well maintained trail offers a more gentle path of ascent/descent, particularly after climbing up the Cable Line Trail.

The trail surface is wide (mostly doubletrack) and well maintained. Hike through tall regrowth trees with a thick undergrowth of green ferns. West Tiger is a great training location due to its proximity to Seattle and the potential for vertical gain (~2,000ft possible).

Flora & Fauna

Lots of ferns.

Trail is snowy and icy, I didn’t use traction but I recommend it especially for the first mile. Views are beautiful with the snow 6.2mi

Lots of ferns adorn the trail under the tall tree canopy. You'll be nearly 100% in the shade.

West Tiger #3 is a wide, well-maintained trail that is good for coming back down after the Cable Line.
