Need to Know

The trail is not currently well marked. Access it approximately 0.25 miles up Tiger Canyon Road from the Mill Creek bridge. Look for a USFS bulletin board. Parking is along the road. The trail tracks down to creek from there.

Description

West Tiger Creek Trail is the lower and northern end of a trail that at one time connected to the upper Tiger Ridge Trail #3324. A storm in the late 1990's washed out the connecting route up the steep slopes to the south. The BMLT Blues Crew worked the summer of 2018 to clear the trail of trash, brush, and trees on the trail.

Flora & Fauna

This trail is a good example of the forest of the lower Blue Mountains.
